As many of you know, my family welcomed Chloe Florence into the world recently. We are immeasurably blessed! I could try to quantify our blessing in diapers, bottles, and hours of sleep deprivation, but who would care. One thing I was very concerned with was the response of Little Wally during the addition of our new bundle of joy. Being very conscious of his esteem during this time, I have made a concentrated effort to spend quality time with him everyday. When I say quality time, I refer to time that he values as important. For example, while we were watching the Phillies game on Sunday, he noted that he wants to play baseball when he is big. My heart leaped for joy and we immediately grabbed the batting tee and headed out back. He was a natural!
The time I get to spend with him now is irreplaceable and I am grateful for every moment. As life only gets busier and the commitments of the family increase greatly, I need to ensure that I keep my priorities in check. Like many of you, I aspire to keep the education of my children one of my top priorities by getting involved in the life and mission of the school. As a parent to my parents, I appreciate all you do for your children to encourage their hard work and dedication to their studies and thank you for being involved in the life of the school.
