Today is the last day of Ballet Camp.
(And I still can't figure out why I'm tired, when my daughter is doing all the work? Hmm.)
This morning, I got to thinking about the wonderful things that have happened as a result of our eldest's commitment to running her own business.
The biggest one by far? Unity in our family.
It has been amazing - and wonderful - to see how all the siblings have pitched in to help their sister in her time of need. Nathaniel is the cameraman, general mover-of-large-objects, and setter-up-of-all-things-sprinkler-like for Splash Day. Emily encourages the little girls, and while she's just a bit too young to teach, she's the snack mistress and craft coordinator. Hannah is actually in ballet camp (her last year! sniff. . . . ) and has been a wonderful example to all the younger girls, an encourager, and has helped with costumes.
Amy just dances. Well, kinda. She's along for the ride. Her time's a-comin', I'm sure!!
(Me? What do I do? Take care of the dog. And stay out of the way. Mostly on my laptop, planning school. But that's another blog post.)
That has been something I never could have seen coming, and I'm so thankful the Lord has given our kids a way to work together, serve Him, and serve each other.
Unintended, but wonderful. And a blessing to this mama's heart.
