Practicing Gratitude 7.10.13

- Hitting a point of "boredom" this summer ~ means I haven't over-scheduled kids
- Taking one day at a time. Summer is passing quickly, and it makes my heart ache a little. I so long for this relaxed schedule with margin

- Silly boys

- Hud's team not winning District - I think I was more disappointed than Hudson. Giving thanks, because the Lord knows.

- Especially thankful for teammates' little sisters

- This week with Sung Yu. What a gift ~ he's such a joy, and he and Hudson connect so well.

- Weekend at the lake. Even with our part of the lake dry, it was so worthwhile to be there. Lots of adventure with rattlesnakes, centipedes, and alligator gar.
Basden begged to be included in the outing - and Bran actually encouraged her to come along

- Gas station hamburgers

- Bruce and Rita, their dock, and watching the fireworks from the middle of the lake. Complete with Esther's balloon dances!

- That Corbin walked around and spotted this rattlesnake moments before sitting down right on top of him. Ewwww. But very interesting.

Safety first
