Tonight was busy.
First, we had Little M's preschool open house. That's sort of old news now because this is his second year in the program and Sweet P did it the year before, but he was so excited, we couldn't skip it.
Plus, it gave me the chance to get a picture of him with his sweet teachers from last year. You may recall, I was attacked by The Plague just before the end of his school year and forgot to take a picture of him with them on his last day. It's a good thing I already know and love his new teachers for this year, or I'd have a really hard time accepting that he won't be with these two again. They are wonderful!
So, the even was a Joyful Moment with the anticipation of many more Joyful Moments with his progress and fun at school to come.
The rest of the evening's busyness was a bittersweet Joyful Moment.
I had a houseful of wonderful friends. That would be a stellar Joyful Moment, except that the reason everyone came was because we hosted a going away party for some of our good friends who are moving in a few days.
It was a fabulous evening of fun and laughter, but I could have done without the tears at the end. Of course, I'll see her again a couple times before they go, and I am always in denial about good byes, so I don't know what that silliness was about.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments that are more like exciting beginnings and less like tearful farewells!
