Hey, do you know what?! I am actually doing this post on time! That almost never happens these days. This post is for February 21 - 27.
Sunday: I am thankful to our Lord Jesus Christ that we can worship openly here in this country without fear or concern. May around the world don't have that freedom.
Patrick is not standing, he is leaning against the door!
Monday: Mercy found Avalyn's sunglasses. She is such a goof ball. I am thankful for my children having siblings. They learn so much from each other.
Tuesday: Look at this pretty fabric! I am thankful for beautiful fabric. It may not be important, but it is nice getting to work with pretty things. This is the main fabric for the back of Mercy's bed size quilt.
Wednesday: I planned a field trip for the kids' astronomy class. I drove three of my children and three of Megan's. We met up with several other moms and their children at the Fernbank planetarium. The kids got to look around a small museum and then see the planetarium. It was a nice time. I am thankful for the opportunity to see something different to help the kids understand more about what they are learning. Here we are inside a kaleidoscope. I was surprised at how hard it was to get a good picture in here!
Thursday: I was feeling terrible! I had a headache that hurt every time I moved, and every time someone or something made noise. I took a couple of pictures of my dog laying on one of the kids art buckets. It doesn't look like a comfortable pillow. I am thankful for quiet days at home. Even though I wasn't feeling well, and I didn't take the kids to school, the day was nice and quiet.
Friday: I still wasn't feeling well, but a bit better than on Thursday. Patrick wanted to help Keira with the dishes. I am thankful for my children helping with the house work. With so many people in the family, I couldn't do all the work myself. I am thankful that they are learning skills to work around the house.
Saturday: Avalyn got a dragon book from the consignment sale. She has made several of the dragons. She loves throwing them and I love watching them fly. We took them outside to let the dragons be in their natural habitat. I am thankful for Avalyn and her interests in all sorts of things!
