Back To School....

Some people would thing I am crazy that I get a little sad when summer ends and my kids have to o back to school. I truly miss my kids when school begins. Alec has started his second year at Wittenberg and Connor is now a seventh grader. God knew what he was doing when he blessed us with Maci. She keeps e pretty busy. We started working on ABCs and 123s.

Back To School Little Things......
I love school shopping
New pencils
A brand new backpack
Paper and notebooks
Pens and markers
Clothing and shoes
Picking up Connor and listening to his first day adventure.
Hearing the alarm clock go off and wondering if summer could last just a little bit longer.
Snapping the first day of school picture.

We all have been on a shopping trip that has made us say "What was I thinking?". Today was one of those days. It is days like today where we brush off the Little Things and come out laughing in the end.

Finding the perfect ottoman to go in our living room.
Maci screaming at the top of her lungs and being thankful that the elderly couple she scared did not suffer a medical mishap.
Maci dropping a glass mouse figurine and breaking it.....And her learning to be responsible and show it to the cashier and apologize.
Me knocking over a display of brooms.
Connor being totally embarrassed by my behavior and Maci's behavior.
Being able to laugh it off!

I truly have been blessed with a husband who loves me unconditionally. There are so many "little things" in our relationship that I often take for granted. What are your "little things" that you take for granted?

Being married to my best friend
Holding hands
Tender kisses
Him loving me when I am at my worst
Sharing dessert (when he takes one bite and let's e have the rest)
Sharing parenthood
Watching scary movies together
Texts saying I am thinking of you.
Watching him have a tea party with our daughter

These are just a few.....

My Life....Motherhood.

I truly had a wonderful weekend. I enjoyed having all three of my children home. I love watching them grow. I love seeing each one of them paint their portraits of life. Each one of them is different and unique.

The Little Things.....
I am proud that I can trust in the decisions they make.
Their ability to not take no for an answer
That they believe in themselves
The kindness of their hearts
Their sense of humor
Love for another
Their Faith
Their laughter
Their Smiles
How each one of them warms my heart
