Always Have A Dream

Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

First Day of School!

I can't believe my baby is 8 years old, and going into 3rd grade! He was excited about it. With his camouflage backpack w/wheels, and even though it got up into the mid to high 80's today, he still wanted to ware his lined sweatshirt jacket. He didn't have it on though when I picked him up from school!?!?! I wonder why?? O'well. He likes his teacher, and from what was sent home today and a couple notes she's written, I think it is going to be a good year for him! Last year the teacher used to send home writing, math, science, as well as having things to read. Which I think was too much for a 2nd grader. Besides I think he was getting a little too bored with some of it. I think I noticed 3 or 4 kids that he had in his class before, whom he got along with pretty well. Mike & I are going to keep our fingers crossed and say a few prayers anyway!! Getting back to his first day, he did say he had a good time, liked his lunch, and got along with his teacher. The only problem I had with him today, or I should say tonight, is that he didn't want to get out of the shower. He wanted to play! So it was a little later getting him to bed than at his regular time (8-8:30). We started getting him used to the earlier bed time a few weeks ago, because during the summer we were letting him stay up til 9:30-10. O'well, I finally got him in bed, said prayers & good-nights about 8:50. Which isn't that bad, but he knows his alarm clock is set for 7am! I miss Mike, he's working 48hrs, so I wont see him till Thursday morning. I guess goes the same for him sometimes. I work the 1st 12 on the 19th, then go back the next morning and work 36hrs. I guess they say "absence makes the heart grow fonder", right!?! Well, I just wanted to let everyone know how Cody's 1st day at school went. So I will write again soon! Take care & smile, and try to think only of the good times when things get rough!! ;0)
