Thankful Thursdays


This week has been a long & hectic one getting E Nut, my 1st grader back to public school and trying to get everything in order for Wing Nut, my 3rd grader to start homeschooling.

This has been another one of those weeks when all I really want to do is grab a good book and go in my bedroom and hide from all of my responsibilities and forget about everything piling up around me. Thankful Thursday couldn't have come at a better time...

Simply put:

I am Thankful for the sleep that I do manage to get and that Wall Nut is coming home tonight from working out of town for the past 3 days!

My friend Michelle brought over a huge bag of adorable clothes from her 2 girls and that is a huge help!

My friend Paloma who moved back to Mexico last year is back in town...hopefully to stay!

E Nut was a big and brave boy as he went to his first day of 1st grade, and did it alone without his big brother to walk into school with him...and did it with a smile!

I made it through my first day of homeschooling Wing Nut as a 3rd grader without any tears, fighting or frustration...we had a great time and he was focused and cooperative...Take that, ADHD!

Wee Nut is still practicing his walking, She Nut is gaining curiosity...looking round at things when she is awake instead of crying, Little Nut Nut is almost ready to say goodbye to diapers and they are all wonderfully healthy!

William has a job, my freelance articles are earning more and more every month and we still have a roof over our head. Our home addition is eating up all our extra money...but it is really starting to show some progress...our new goal is to be moved in this fall, I think it might just happen if we can stay focused!
