this week I am blogging my Real Life Joys, read more here
Today I am thankful for mornings.
Her school doesn't start until after lunch, so we have the mornings to ourselves....and we love it.
I try to hold off on errands so we can have quiet, slow mornings at home.
We check the garden (things are slowwwwly) still coming. Sometimes we have to hunt.
Lots of art--coloring, painting, drawing.
We practice her reading.
Loud music. Some dancing.
Baking. Making. Creating.
It's our time.....I hope she remembers it forever.
Extra Joys today:
-The temperature is perfect. Not too hot or too cold.
-Both Littles RUNNING to me after school to give me a hug and tell me about their day.
Best feeling ever.
-I have a wind chime outside my front door that has been here since we moved in 5 1/2 years ago. I have no idea who it belonged to or how old it might be.
But I love when I hear it ding-a-ling-ing from the fall breeze.
-Time. It has seriously been the craziest week. So happy that a week has already gone by, and anxious to get a few more under my belt.
-Middle-of-the-night-half-sleeping-kids. Our house is small and we all sleep just a few steps away from each other. We hear every breath, snore, and midnight bathroom break. My favorite is when they stumble back to their rooms talking in their sleep......it never gets old.
-fresh flowers from friends on my big table. happiness.
-watching soccer snuggled in a blanket. I love blankets.
take a minute. think.
