Still grateful

Today I am grateful for smiles. Can you imagine what kind of world this would be if we didn't have smiles?  One smile can lift the worst mood. It's like they are magic.  

It's Monday and we had the pleasure of having two extra smiles today. A friends girlies are joining us every Monday for the next little while.  I loved watching my boy who is six play with the two year old. She was giggling like crazy at him and he was doing his best to be as silly as possible. Later when they were getting ready to watch a movie, she says, " 'I' sit on the couch beside me!" And then she snuggled right into him.  So cute. I was going to take a picture but I didn't want to disturb the moment. :)

In other news, we started school today. It was a slow start though because the kids are still catching up on sleep. But the kids got a great devotional book for Christmas and we started reading it today.  It's called "Jesus Calling: 365 devotions for kids" I really liked it. It sparked up some good conversation between us and I would take a slow start in school if it means that every morning.  All in all we got most of our school done and we are ready for tomorrow. I was sneaky and had them do today's work before Christmas because I was anticipating a slow start so we are still on track anyway.

  1. I love reading about the things you are grateful for. It makes me stop and think about what I am thankful for. Your post remind me of the book "One Thousand Gifts". Have you read it? Good thinking getting today's work done before Christmas- I'll have to remember that trick :)
