Today has been a day dropped out of June into April.

We are blessed by the opportunity to spend the afternoon with our granddaughter, take her to dance class, and attend the student-led conference at her school—the first one since she transitioned from home school to public school last fall.
It’s fascinating to see her interact with her peers and teachers. She is confident, articulate, and goes out of her way to include others. The report from her third grade teacher refers to her as a role model for the school. She has social skills I covet.
Academically, she shines; and writing is at the top of the list. Her teacher makes reference to the “awesome stories” she writes. In this she is like her mama and her grandmother. It’s fascinating to see the writing gene passed down.
This morning I am reflective. I’m thinking about nature and nurture, what busy lives this younger generation is in the throes of, how grateful I am for my slower paced time of life, and also for opportunities to step into that busyness from time to time.
Today, another stellar day; and late this afternoon a talent show at our granddaughter’s school where she will be performing a dance she choreographed herself. Have I mentioned that I covet her confidence?
