Right now, I am choosing to be thankful. For starters, I am thankful that my kids are taking turns being little stinkers. Can you even imagine if all three acted like 2 year olds at the same time? Oh My. Yesterday, C took his turn for a while but today is being an angel. He is such a helper, really. I am very thankful for his willingness to jump in and help out when he sees that I need it. He has matured quite a bit lately...it is sad but cool to watch him beginning the process of turning into a young man. This morning, P took her turn testing my patience. She spent some quality time in time-out before snapping out of it at lunch time. I am thankful that she LOVES learning. She is eating this schooling up (we started yesterday). I am looking forward to seeing where she is this time next year. It is currently T's turn to be a stinker. Hmmmm.....I better think back on what I was thankful for this morning for him b/c I'm not feeling it right now. Ok, really, I am thankful that he loves the Lord. I know God has big things for this little boy. I pray that he will begin to love learning but right now, he at least loves the Lord.............and cicadas.
