grateful for this week . . .


big kids who have fun ideas and can execute much more of them themselves


birthday cake dreaming for my sweet almost 6 year old

cake idea from this book


sweet friends


lip licking good hot cocoa on an unexpectedly snowy afternoon


hand me down dresses that are so much fun to wear, green lantern symbols drawn on by her brother and that smile


aunts who quilt and give generously and a daughter who likes to play pretend


that homeschooling can happen anywhere and that our car dealership service area has a fish pond

also, that my kids are enamored with and curious about nature wherever they may find it


another aunt who gave us a chick-fil-a gift card which led to a fun treat of breakfast out after taking the car into the shop


the "after a library trip quiet" that comes as they pour through the new offerings



a fixed and ready to go car, fun kids to spend my days with and that we were all still smiling at this point in a long day!  


Nana's who host St. Patrick's Day parties and fun cousins building leprechaun traps!


a visit from Granddad!  

that all of our grandparents love, share and promote reading


really good friends and the unexpected discovery of a whole patch of blooming crocus in our neighborhood!!!!!  




that I get to homeschool . . . I am very grateful for this life . . . 


bracelets from Kenya


braids


the margin in a day to try hairstyles before hiking



the young woman she is growing up to be 

(and her fashion sense!)  


my strong boy


handsome husband and that my kids love their grandparents


pretty girl


good friends


her enthusiasm and all her words


stop me in my tracks views during errands


spring meals coming up


their insatiable appetites for learning and trying new things


What are you thankful for this week?
