I am remembering…how much the kids and I giggled over the ridiculousness of this story. Some things are just entertaining.
I am thankful for…a beautiful camping trip in Goliad (despite Andrew sitting in a fire ant bed and me falling off an unmoving bike) full of lovely memories: an afternoon with Mom and Kathy, Scare on the Square, carving pumpkins, riding bikes and William’s lucky find. So glad Leslie and Jessica joined us for the adventure.
I am watching…the election results roll in (yep, this is really a “nightbook” not a “daybook”)
I am reflecting…on this conversation with Andrew when we were out riding bikes on Sunday. We rode our bikes to the cemetery and stopped by Baby Land there, praying for the little souls and the mamas and papas who lost their little ones. A few minutes later, this conversation occurred:
A: Mommy, how did those moms and dads lose… (couldn’t hear everything as he was riding behind me)
A: I said, how did those ….lose their babies?
A (as he rides up beside me): I said, how did those moms and dads lose their babies? (and in the same breath, with a hint of astonishment) And how do these pedals work? (as he pedals off to join his brothers, never even waiting for me to answer either question…I love the way their little brains work!)
In the schoolroom…new week. New routine. New schedule. Renewed love of learning.
In the kitchen…fancy breakfast. Cereal with these delicious strawberries. If you’re considering stocking up on food storage or you just want to add some dried food to your cabinet, I seriously recommend Thrive Life. The food is delicious (we’re huge fans of the coconut bites…yum!).
I am wearing…shorts and a t-shirt…because it’s a very warm South Texas fall.
I am excited…because I’m learning Latin. Yep, that excites me. Weird, I know.
