After an early bout of Spring back in February, before a return to several weeks of more seasonal temperatures, the past few days have once again been very Spring-like. It’s been a nice way to end the week.
That’s just one of…
- Today was the first Friday of regular classes this semester where I’ve not had 7 hours straight of teaching. My Master’s level students had their oral presentations on Tuesday so they are done – leaving me with a 1-hour break between my first 4 and last 2 hours of teaching. I miss those other students, but it was nice to have a bit of a breather!
- My second GoodThing of the day actually has to do with Soph. Every Friday she has a 2-3hour test that prepares her for a very important end-of-the-year test that all French students take. They are grueling even for French students, so imagine what they’re like for someone who only started French-language schooling this year! Up to this point, she’d never had time to actually complete the test because her speed of production just wasn’t there. Today, however, for the first time, she was elated to have actually finished the test, within the allotted time. That’s progress and we thank the Lord for it!
- Tonight I looked out the back window of our little utility room and saw what is depicted in the picture below. This is our neighbour’s cherry tree, lit up by the setting sun. Assuming we don’t get any driving, heavy rains over the next couple of weeks, you can see that the cherry harvest should be plentiful. If I’d taken a photo from a bit further back, in our yard, you’d also see white plum blossoms and lovely pink blossoms on the peach and nectarine trees as well. I’m thankful for the beauty of God’s creation that we get to witness daily (just outside our back window).
