Thankful for Jedi's old clothes...some are timeless,
some are going to goodwill, some the garbage.
(who knew that socks would lose their elasticity after 12 years?)
I mean, a person just can't find clothes like these anymore,
Thankful that some of my kiddos are so very photogenic and always ready for a picture...
and others are not.
Here's some reality Thankfuls,
so no one thinks my life is perfect or something from reading my thankfuls
In fact, I write the thankfuls to remind myself how blessed I truly am,
through the muck and reality of every day life homeschooling,
and raising 6 kiddos.
Thankful I almost always have a pile of laundry like this waiting
for me to fold on our kitchen table.
(I have the kiddos lay everything flat, fold the socks, washcloths and underwear,
but let's face it, some fold better than others and I'm pretty picky about laundry,
it's my thing--I think I need a whole separate post about laundry)
Reality about cute babies in the sink:
He always needs a bath after he eats, always.
there are always piles of dirty dishes waiting to be rinsed and/or washed
dirty washcloths from the day behind the faucet...
Thankful for babies in sinks and dishes to wash,
it means we always have plenty of food to eat.
Thankful for fall walks....
I wanted to go for a walk all day,
but it just never happened, til finally after supper,
at 6:30 I was trying to find hats and mittens for the kiddos and yelling,
because I just wanted to get out of the house and it was already getting dark outside!!
Thankful we did catch this....
Thankful that since we couldn't find our mittens, it was actually not too cold outside!
and we made it to the end of the road and back...
Thankful (more reality here) that we homeschool and can wear our jammies
What did I tell you about the good posing kiddos?
Thankful for cute handed down winter hats and beautiful curls sticking out...
Thankful for giant blue eyes...
I mean seriously, look at those eyes, they take up half her face!!
Thankful she's always right there ready to put on an apron with me while I cook.
A little reality:
I am constantly telling her to get off the counter and not to eat anything...
Thankful we still have a little color left in our yard, but this is the last tree.
(except one that waits til spring to lose it's leaves)
Thankful we found a new Tae Kwon Do place and Jedi loves it!!
We are back at it twice a week!
we have not done it since last November, things just got busy with the baby
and then our place moved....and it cost a ton of money....
Thankful for generous grandparents who help out with extra curriculars!
Thankful we found some time to do some fall art...
(water paint some white paper, then glue a black tree to it, add some pumpkins if you want)
Have a blessed weekend everyone!
