I am grateful for...
the current placement of things
for the time to look at, into, and through things
for a changing evolving family, marriage, extended family, friendships, season, homeschool, me...
my sweet boy's shaved head,
and that his hair will grow and he will no longer look like he's 7 and about to rob a bank
two back-to-back nights of gaming with my Husband
my hands down favorite anniversary gift EVER:
the rest of my life with strong, handsome, supportive, funny, sweet, attentive, loving, loyal, beautiful him:
his return, scheduled for Tuesday night
that he and his five year old cousin Michael have become inseparable BFFs.
that he is very well loved and taken care of, be it here or there.
LOTS of spare time to myself
the laying out of our Kindergarten plan (with a first grade curriculum) for the year
the next two days all to myself for preparing a special school space and a new play area in our home
our coming first day of Kindergarten, August 26th
my new budget becoming hardly noticeable in week five
still having everything we need and more
and lastly, our two new outdoor pets:
our marbled orb weaver "Shar" (Charlotte from Charlotte's Web is an orb weaver) living right on my bedroom window OUTSIDE, of course
