It's Theme Thursday over at Clan Donaldson. This week's theme is grow, a great theme for Augusta, Georgia, in early April. There's a reason The Masters comes to town this time of year -- the city explodes with color.
One of the neat things about gardening in the South is that many annuals act like perennials and just keep coming back. For lazy gardeners like me, this is a good thing.
But, like Cari, I have my shot(s) on theme and then my real shot of the week, one that captures Grow not in the colorful sense, but in the ultimate sense of the word perennial:
My precious John has struggled mightily in the math department. He came home with a similar homework sheet a while back, and I'm telling you, it might have been written in Roman numerals for all he could decipher of it. We have worked, worked, worked on numbers. Last week, I called on every bit of my Montessori training and then asked the Holy Spirit to pour down the Isaiah gift most needed: understanding.
Something went click.
Yesterday John sat on the floor, set up a small fan to keep him cool, and finished this bad boy without problem or complaint.
He asked if he could bring it to school to show his teacher.
That, my friends, is growth.
Head over to Cari's to add your photos.
