Thankful Thursdays

I am impressed with myself for actually remembering to do something two weeks in a row!! Yay me! (In my head that sounded like London Tipton, which is really sad. If you get that reference-that's sad too!)

This week I am thankful for:

  • Our gorgeous weather. The past few days have been absolutely awesome. Not too hot; not too cold. There has been lots of sun, but a nice breeze also. I was able to spend most of Tuesday outside with my kids from school. Despite a slight sunburn on my leg, it was quite comfortable to sit and watch them play.

  • Popsicles. I bought some new ones at the store this week. I decided not to go with the classic orange, grape, and cherry flavors. We always ended up with a box of orange ones that no one really wanted. The ones I bought are citrus punch, tropical punch, mango punch, and kiwi strawberry punch. I like 'em, Frances likes 'em and Henry LOVES 'em. I don't think Ken has had one yet and if he doesn't hurry back from his business trip he may not get the chance!!

  • My daughter. Frances is quite the character. Some days I want to walk around with a tape recorder and record everything she says. Of course, she would stop saying funny/profound things if I did so, but I can still wish. Some of my favorites from this week:

F: "I didn't kick her! I pushed her with my foot!"

F: "Mommy, I went in my room and talked to God."

Me:"Really, what did you talk about?"

F: "I told him I was mad at you because you said to get my pajamas. Then I laid on my pillow and cried it all out. Then God made it better!" (BTW, Her face was completely dry when she said this to me, so I'm not so sure about the crying part.)

F: "Mommy, Woody [her imaginary friend] was really bad at school today. He got on red [the "worst bad" color on our behavior chart]."

Me: "Really? What did he do that was so bad?"

F: "He did all the bad kinds of bad stuff. He ate snack outside without a teacher. He threw his cookies on the floor. He was not nice to his friends."

F: "Henry! Get in the boat! You are sinking!!" They were playing in the laundry basket and Henry climbed out.


  1. Kids say the funniest things! I bet it warms your heart when she says that she talked to God. Even if she was mad at you!

    Thanks for sharing your blessings! Have a great day!

  2. We love the park and popsicles in the summertime at our house!
