Thankful Thursday - Yes it is still Thursday

You will have to excuse the lateness of my post. I was having fun helping a friend paint her bedroom before they get new carpet - and yes it was fun I am not just saying that, exhausting but fun.

So today I am thankful for...
...friends that trust me to help them paint there house. 
... a gigantic pile of laundry that keeps growing and growing.
... a counter full of dirty dishes that I can not seem to keep cleaned off.
... a husband that does not freakout when he comes home and I have rearranged and reorganized the house.
... a husband that will stay late at work even though he does not want to but it needs to get done, and that he knows there is a boundary between working extra occasionally and being a work-a-holic.
... a husband that loves me for me not for what I accomplish during that week.
... chocolate milk.
... coffee and fanciness to put in me coffee.
... Diet Dr. Pepper.
... homeschooling.
... for 3 awesome kids.

River Run for Orphans 2010

Every year for the last 3 years our church has helped put on a 5k run to raise money for orphans around the world. Anna decided all on her own that she wanted to run in what is called the "Fun Run" - which is a shorter 1 mile run for kids. She raised money and ran on Saturday; she loves people and loves helping out and I am so proud of her wanting to do this all on her own. She raised $240; and then had a blast running what her friends. Benen unofficial ran in the race - anything Anna does he is determined to try (next year I think we will have him raise money too).

Thankful Thursday - Labor Day Camping Trip

This week I am thankful for a little camping trip we got to take over Labor Day Weekend.

I am thankful that Anna got to shoot daddies pellet gun...

...and that Benen also got to shoot it.

 I am thankful that we got to enjoy some family time and go walking by the creek.

I am thankful that the kids got to go on a nature survival hike.

I am thankful for my little princesses that loves to talk and listen to people.

I am thankful for my little man that is along for the ride even if he is in his own world.

I am thankful for the trooper that Somer Joy was; even though she does not look to happy in this picture she was awesome all 5 days we were camping.

My Man Rocks Monday

Matt took a conceal and carry class this weekend and he rocks for actually doing something that he enjoys and for trying new things. He also rocks because when they were practicing scenarios he just pictured the victim as Anna and knew he had to make every shout count and according the to instructor he did a good job - he is a wonderful protective father.

Thankful Thursday

It is Thankful Thursday and I have internet to actually write a post. Speaking of no internet that is what I am thankful for. We did not have internet for a few weeks and while it was challenging at the same time it should me how much time I actually spend just vegging out on the computer. I num myself by just sitting and staring. So I am thankful for the chance to see were I choose to num myself and not deal with life. I want to deal with and experience everything God has for me each day. I am thankful for a chance to do that today.
