Practicing Gratitude... 9.6.11

- Turning a new calendar page
- Struggling with sending our youngest to school... the gratitude that comes when it's ONLY that

- Continued construction... so fun to see the progress




- THIS in our driveway
Last weekend during some Sat morn chores, I asked Hudson if he was up to a "yucky" task, and his eyes grew wide as he thought I was asking him to clean out the porta-potty.
- Dog crates (have I mentioned those??!)

- Moms-in-Touch... praying Scripture over our children with fellow school moms

- Surprises from Auntie Paulette


- Chips and salsa

- Relaxed evenings, a sign of the time with fewer sports this fall

- When broken meets creative


- Homework (often chaotic) at the kitchen counter

- Big boys who aren't too big to still pretend-play karate


- Quizlet

- Popcorn and perfection

- River's 6th year (Happy Birthday in Seattle, Riv!)



- Toasted cheesy bagels for easy dinner

- Watching Cappy with his grandkids



- A full fridge

- That little game in Waco Friday night


- David Crowder - that he was brave to chase his dream, and that I get to benefit from it year after year through a speaker on my kitchen counter

- Chris' "40 Under 40" award (so, so proud!)

- C's big work deadlines OVER


- Nikki's phone

- Margin in my days

- This one putting up with two rambunctious puppies
Yukon often wears this resigned expression these days


- Hudson doing his homework independently and thoroughly

- Our full suburban
This pic was snapped two days after the above one... the boys simply didn't take these shirts off all weekend.

- The dilemma of having to choose between two great Bible studies

- When everything stops for sunsets at the lake

 

- This junglegym bunkbed


- Her favorite perch
 

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles... 1 Chronicles 16:11-12
