I have been participating in the Slice of Life challenge since 2008 and it’s always one of my favorite blog-related activities. Thank you to Ruth and Stacey for this awesome challenge!
This year’s challenge has certainly been different. For the first time I had students slicing with me, and many of them sliced every day! It’s been a pleasure reading their entries and comments this month and I am so glad I challenged them to participate (even if some of them dreaded it).
But this month has also been full of ups and downs. Chris had surgery on March 19th, and the lead up to that was frantic. The following week was spent in the hospital and he came home last week. He’s been home a few days now and it’s such a relief to have him recovering here, instead of in the hospital. The SOL challenge gave me some time to focus on each day and forced me to sit down and think of the things I am grateful for each day. And I am grateful for the Slice of Life challenge for helping me keep my sanity this month.
I can’t wait til next year!
