Goodbye Week. Hello Weekend. Lessons Learned: Take 30.

To have any shot at understanding this post, please click here, first!

The gold armlet is Ammut's gift to the Dead Pharaoh. Ammut has the head of a crocodile, a body of a lion, and back legs of a hippo.

Goodbye short week with a lot accomplished.
Goodbye celebrating rainmaker Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Goodbye giving one's self in so many different ways.
Goodbye getting ready and adding the finishing touches to Ammut for the Mummy Wrap.
Goodbye 4th Grade Mummy Wrap happening today.

Hello proof that you gotta have friends.
Hello family celebration today - Sretna Slava.
Hello winter, I was hoping you wouldn't show up this year.
Hello sleep over at Grandparents' - let the spoiling begin.
Hello school strategy meeting where we really feel like we're being heard.


Getting ready for today's Mummy Wrap had so many underlying lessons to be learned this week. My son, a.k.a. Ammut, owned this role from day one. He had a vision for what he wanted his costume to look like and, together, we made it happen.

He thought it out.
He drew it out.
We figured it out.
We worked it out.
The results are in.

Actions may speak louder than words, but it is only in the origin of thought that the process begins.

There was one more lesson I learned this week: I rock a glue gun like nobody's business.

Have a fantastic weekend. I hope you have fun plans!
