Thankful for my backyard, yellow, fall view from our dining room.
We've had a beautiful fall here in Minnesota.
I am trying to enjoy and appreciate it.
(hoping it to be my last one here in Minnesota)
We've had both warm and cooler temps.
Next week looks to have expected highs in the 40's
Thankful for waterpainting boys
There's a christian message with the spider web, did you know that?
The spider makes her web and busies herself
with a million other things going on.
She decides one day to do some housecleaning,
getting rid of old bugs and messy strings.
She is busy working away until she pulls
a piece of the web that is stretched out and looks as if
there is no need for it.
She pulls it out and the whole web falls down.
Do you know the moral of this story?
(it's kind of a stretch of the imagination but I like it)
The string that she was not paying attention any more
ended up being the string she should have been taking the most care of.
Her spiritual life.
Putting the right things in order, by putting God first and center.
And kind of October-ish-Halloween-ish.
(trust me, it's a word)
Thankful for homeschool soccer on Saturday mornings!
(this is a picture of the morning warm up)
Thankful the people that run it, have been running it for 20 some years now
and this is their last year.
Their youngest is a senior.
What a gift they've been all these years to all of us!
Thankful a couple weeks ago, we had temps in the 80's
It was like summer again!
Kids were running around in shorts, playing with water and sticks
Thankful I got to correct papers out in it!
The next day.
Not so warm.
It was really, really cold actually!
Thankful we only have a few more winter items to replace
after giving everything away last spring.
Thankful for unicycling Mondays!
It's hard to get pictures of moving unicyclists...these two are a little easier!
Thankful they are forever best friends and worst of enemies!!
Reminds me of these two cuties!
This is my little brother and I!
(he's 13 months younger than I am)
We were 2 and 4 here and I remember it vividly.
The photographer wanted him to lean on me and his elbow was digging into my leg.
But she made him keep it there....can't you tell by the look on my face?
Thankful we had the opportunity to visit this mama and her sweet baby boy!!
Isn't he just a honey?
Now if he doesn't make you want to have another baby, nothing will.
I tried to steal him before we left, but it didn't work,
I forgot my baby carseat!
Thankful for little helpers!
Thankful for graveyard walks on fall days
This graveyard is behind our home, through the woods.
Thankful some kids still jump on the trampoline!
Thankful for beautiful fall art!
Thankful Billie Jo is always sharing her love for candles and her home looks so homey,
because I'd thrown out all my candles decluttering last spring!
So I had to go get a fall smelling candle and I'm loving it!
Thankful for these two....
and fall leaf kicking walks!
Aren't they sweet?
They're holding hands....
No walk goes without someone getting stuff in their shoes
or kids throwing things down someone's back
Please tell me our kids are not the only ones that fight like this!!
Thankful their fighting did not ruin my walk!
Thankful for my fall mailbox!
(kind of a sad sight these days)
Reminding myself of this quote daily.
( Thankful I know how to put words on pictures now!)
I probably should have picked a different picture though,
as no color wording worked.
