My boys like to play games in the car on the way to school. And it's fun for me, as a former teacher, to play learning games. Keeps me sharp! And them, too! More than that, it helps me to see their progress. Which came out in spades today. My two sons wanted to play math games in the car. I started with simple addition and subtraction but then they wanted to understand "times" (multiplication). I kept making it harder and harder and they rose to the challenge each time. I was so impressed. And so happy that they find joy in math, too!
A friend once told me that she tries to find joy in every day. But some weeks it's hard. A whole week without finding joy? That is so sad. I find joy in EVERY day. Or so I think. So I'm testing myself. I am challenging myself to find joy in every single day. Without fail. I will post joy every single day to prove it to myself, to inspire others. Just to see if I can do it. Small bits of joy. Large, monumental moments of joy. But joy is what you will find here.
