Thankful Thursday

1. I am thankful the kids have learned to swim this summer.

2. I am thankful that the kids swim teacher each time we met prayed and showed them that God could even use swimming for His glory. Kaibryn prayed Monday before the class started and asked that "everyone would be brave and learn to swim because they might be missionaries some day and they could use swimming to tell people about Jesus." She remembered this from the first lesson this summer.

3. I am thankful that the swim teacher called this morning and said she was going to be gone this afternoon and that we could come over and swim while she was gone. Yes, we did and it was so nice.

4. I am thankful for the air-conditioner.

5. I am thankful for our new front door. It is black and it is beautiful. I'll post pictures later.

6. I am thankful that Christopher got a good report on his ears this week and is not going to need tubes.

7. I am thankful that my kids are old enough to help out around the house. It is so nice to give them a job and know that it is going to be done correctly.

8. I am thankful that my Mom took each one of the kids this week to buy some "school supplies." It made them feel special and feel like they were going to "real" school as Christopher puts it.

9. I am thankful that school books have been ordered and I am getting an idea of how to schedule schooling (Pre-K, K & 1st - yikes.)

10. I am thankful that I am a stay-at-home Mom. If I was not I would not be able to do some of the fun things with my kids that I have been able to do this summer. Although, it is the hardest thing I have ever done, it is so worth it.

Hope everyone has a thankful day. What are you thankful for?
