Grateful Friday

Today I give thanks for...

T. Bone’s homerun this week.  It was a sight to be seen and celebrated.

Ice Cream and custard and frozen yogurt and sometimes for lunch or dinner.

Our National Anthem.

T. Bone’s impromptu 12 ½ birthday celebration.  All that we needed was burgers and boys.  And balls...baseballs, footballs, basketballs, soccer balls, tennis balls, golf balls, goofballs...

Watching the fireworks from our yard as they went off all around us.

A mid-week getaway to the Wisconsin Dells for water park fun, family time and a scenic tour of the Wisconsin River.

Sharing the bbq platter at Buffalo Phil’s with Coach when I was all set to order a chicken sandwich.  When in was the smart choice.

Road trips.  Even short ones.  There’s something so cozy about having my little family tucked in to our van destination bound.  And then equally warm and fuzzy to pack up and come back home.

Reflections.  Figurative and literal.

Lilies.  Mine and Mother Nature’s.

The kitchen has been closed for most of the week.

Lil spent the weekend with one set of grandparent and then the better part of the week with the other set at Camp Grandma.  She was a little homesick as the week wore on.  I’m not grateful that she’s rueful…just that she loves home enough to miss it.  We're both grateful for grandparents who spend lots of time with the kiddos.

Coach has been serious about his honey do list.

Super  fans.  Grandmas and Grandpas who come to cheer on their grandkids.  They all love it!

A movie night with T. Bone this week.  We ordered Identity Theft and laughed quite a lot even as we tuned out some of the expletives and fast forwarded a scene or two.

My camera arrived.  No more grainy phone pictures.  Amen!
