Happy Friday friends! I hope that you have had a lovely and wonderful week! This week so precious and yet... held some challenging moments... going back to work after being on vacation for part of the week last week was... hard. I am sure everyone in the world can relate to that right now. *smiles*

Also, can I just say- how have we come to the end of July?!? I am honestly shocked.

Summer. Please slow down. 

So many of my friends in the south and other parts of the country are getting ready to head back to school. Up here in the northeast we still have nearly half the summer left, so we are going to try to soak up as many beautiful moments as we can. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing I hope and pray that you have a wonderful weekend.

Here are some of my favorite things from this past week! First of all....

3. Looking for the sun each Day
Each and every single day we are trying to soak up as much of the sun as we possibly can! It has been raining so much that sometimes it seems like a futile adventure (I snapped this picture of my mom searching for it when we headed down to the beach the other day) but it has brought us a lot of laughter as we giggle about "is that the sun"?!?

5. Overwhelmingly Grateful
A year yesterday we were in a very different place. Mom was in the ER, heading into the ICU for a stay, and we had no idea that she was fighting anaplasmosis or what the next days, weeks, and months would look like with a cascade of different things. 

To be at the spot we are at now... it has just been absolutely beautiful. Numerous times throughout the day I just thank the Lord so much. The little moments were always precious, but they are even more precious now. Thank you for all of your prayers for us last year and as we continue forward. We are so incredibly grateful.

If there is anything that I could specifically pray for you, please feel free to send an email. I would be honored to pray for you!

I have been working so hard on re-branding and updating the Caravan Sonnet Teachers Pay Teachers Shop over the summer and adding tons of new resources for the start of this school year!

This shop is filled with creative, colorful, and educational history, government, and personal finance items has been so lovely to work on. 

I miss being in the classroom.
 I really really really miss it. 
It is literally an ache many times.

Creating for Caravan Sonnet Shoppe is truly a blessing and I hope that it helps other teachers who are currently in the classroom right now. If you are looking for these types of resources or know a teacher who is or a homeschool mama please share the link to the shoppe HERE!

On Monday I shared one of the newest additions to the shop are these personal finance posters which make perfect classroom decor or decor for homeschool mamas! You can read all about them HERE!

With Caravan Sonnet turning ten years old I thought it would be fun on Fridays to share some older posts from the blog! 

Before I leave the topic I mentioned above... I do want to say that I remain speechless at how far I have truly come in this healing process. For a "What's Up Wednesday" post I wrote (back in 2018!!) I shared that I was studying and studying for all of the teacher certification tests. It is overwhelming to think about those first few baby steps of getting back into the classroom. *tears* At the time I knew it would be a slow journey, but to see where I am now... I am truly overwhelmed. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over so many years with so much love! 

I hope that you have a wonderful Friday friends! Thank you for making this such an incredible space to come to and connect with every single day. I am so blessed!!
