But last weekend it hit me just how busy things are going to be, and I freaked out a little. There are so many things I want to do, things I need to do, and things other people want me to do. And quite frankly, there isn't nearly enough time for all of that. I need more hours in the day. And the night. I would like to sleep lots of hours. ;)
And then the snow came, and I was forced to slow down for a few days. It was pretty marvelous.
But now the snow is gone, and I'm ready to get back into the swing of things. I like going to my classes, and I love my practicum. I'm in an elementary school, and there is always something to do! I'm learning so much, and starting to take on more active roles rather than just shadowing. Next week I'm going to start leading a small counseling group with a few kids!

As for needing more hours in the day, that is obviously not going to happen. Sigh. So I guess I will have to get better at being self-disciplined so I can stay on top of things. And I'm going to have to get better at saying no sometimes so I will have room to say yes to the right things. That is not always easy.
I'll leave you with a few pictures from our snow days. Enjoy!

|Isaac took off his gloves, then his hands got cold, so he was warming them up|

|Just me, enjoying a snowy day|
|Elijah and Joshua had fun running through the snow|
|Joshua took off his gloves and put his hands in the snow.|
At first he didn't know what to think...
|And then he was very upset.|
He went inside shortly after this photo was taken.
|The next morning. Beautiful!|
