It's turned into an absolutely beautiful day! Sitting here looking out at the blue sky and the sun shining down on my flowerbeds.
The past couple of weeks have been a mixed bag of good and bad. Happy times and stressful times. My Dad has had some recurring health issues for the past 20 or so years. He has always overcame them and has continued to live his life in a positive way and has never let his health keep him from doing the things that he loves. Recently, his heart condition has worsened and has been interfering with his day to day activities. Things that used to be very fun and rewarding for him are now exhausting. I pray daily for his continued positive attitude and for his daily comfort.
School started and Lindsay is settling in very well. Her grades, with the exception of Pre-Algebra, are all A's! And that math grade will jump up to an A very soon I'm sure. She's a hard worker and a kid who cares a lot about doing her best.
We had some rain thanks to Hurricane Isaac over the holiday weekend. It was much needed and Lindsay and I even went out and got a little wet on one occasion. It's been so long since we've seen any rain, it was a welcome change!
