...And he is off- overnight road trip to Austin! It's his fifth grade class pentathlon with the Austin Waldorf &the New Orleans Waldorf fifth graders. They all have been working so hard physically preparing, there is a speech he wrote as Apollo and will say from his schools city state and then participate in the 5 events...so excited! I can not wait to hear about it and I have folks poised ready to send me photos as the events take place.
Oh how I'm incredibly grateful for dear friends and my incredible parents stepping in last minute-being there in my place and help making it happen for Maxx, while I have to stay back and help make things happen here. Oh how I want to be there!!!! and had it all worked out perfect...YES! I can go!...then last minute circumstances, out of my hands...happened...damn it! The disappointment and the lump in my throat...But this bakery has given me so much more freedom to be in Maxx's life, than I have ever been before...and my disappointed heart reaches out for help. I choose to find the joy and gratefulness through all the feelings as friends and family say yes! Last night Maxx and I closed the doors to the bakery and had a great skate, went out to dinner (for our favorite tamales!), shopped for needed things, packed, and made snack bag rations to share for the road trip. Then this morning prepared, packed and so joyful for the pentathlon he sprung out of bed. Road trip, friends, a hotel, the events...it's one BIG fun weekend!!! Today the bakery was filled with our community loving on us, enjoying and reaping our hard work. Maxx is so stinking proud of the bakery and knows even though we both want me to go, that staying back allows us to have a bigger life with more freedoms...we have been creating. Sitting and feeling through the struggle---I'm so grateful and inspired to keep pushing and look forward to hanging out building legos and hearing about it all when he gets home. #maxxman #workingmom #gratitude #life .
