What Amazing Kids

So yesterday was big progress for me and for the kiddos.  I know they are old enough to have done this before, but they haven't.  They rode public transportation from our house to my office to save me an hour of lost work time.  They don't have to change busses or anything, but still, I was a little worried.  They made it fine, and were in my office when I got back from a meeting. Of course, I didn't know they were there, they shouted (quietly) "Boo" and scared the crap out of me, but it made them laugh.  It was good. 
Then, once we got home, they each wanted to put up their own blinds in their rooms, and I decided - why not - they'll ask for help if they need it. I was right there with them and the did it ALL by themselves - each in his/her own room.  I was so proud of them.  I had to give a small bit of direction, but VERY little, and the did it.  I'm glad they had that sense of accomplishment.  I think I'm going to try some more things like this.  It is good to see them growing up and being self-reliant.
Long meeting at work today, not looking forward to it.  Oh well, it will be over before I know it.  Hope you have a great day.  Joyful morning with beautiful sun.
