Gratitude Flows Within: Day 8
Ever had one of those days when you just want to knock a few heads together and call it a day? Except the kiddos are too busy knocking their own heads together to notice?
Maybe a rubber mallet would do it?
I think sending them outside is probably a healthier solution.
I am thankful that today was a sunny, if chilly, day and that the kiddos were able to play outside for a long time this afternoon. Sometimes it's more important to let them run around than do formal bookwork. I'm thankful that God has shown me the wisdom of that.
I'm thankful that Mary was able to go next door and retrieve David's shoe after he kicked it off his foot and over the fence.
I'm thankful that there was a minimum of fights while they were outside and only one kiddo got a ball in the face. And that it really was an accident.
I'm thankful that Emma has learned the word "me." She uses it whenever I ask "Who wants some ______?"
What are you thankful for today?
