school buses and giving thanks

Sunday, December 1, 2013


The kids are in bed and we have almost re-packed all our bags. Don't you hate when something you've looked forward to for what seems like forever is almost over? Don't even get me started on the post-Christmas blues. Bleh.

Today after church we stopped by C's old high school to take a look at some school buses parked in the parking lot. We talked about the big wheels and spelled out the letters we found all over the bus. I love that my kids are at a stage where they love to explore and learn. Sometimes you don't need manuals or planned-out lessons...just one look outside gives us a plethora of learning opportunities. I'm trying to learn to take advantage of those opportunities. 


I'm thankful for these two kids who make me see the world in a whole new way every day. Gosh it's an amazing place.

I'm thankful for my husband. He is my biggest supporter and makes me feel like I can accomplish anything. And, I'm thankful that I married a man who will pull over to jump in leaves and inspect school buses :) 

I'm thankful for the chance I get to be a mama. It's exciting and often draining and sometimes it feels like I don't get one second for me, but there's nothing else I'd rather do.

I'm thankful for my parents and that I am able to call them some of my very best friends. 

I'm thankful for my brothers. And that they still love me even though I'm THAT bossy older sister. 

I'm thankful for my in laws. They don't come better than mine. Really. 

I'm thankful for extended family and for their love for my children. Seeing those I love love my children is truly a special thing. 

I'm thankful for those I'm able to call my friends. They somehow stick with me even when I'm so bad at keeping in touch or forget their birthdays. 

I'm thankful for my religious beliefs. I believe in a loving God and that my family can be together for all time. 

My life is nowhere near perfect. Not even close. But I have much to be very thankful for.
