Thankful Thursday

Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day.
~Author Unknown

~Lots of positive feedback & good discussions with people about my post When is it ok to use the R word?

~Pecan, carmel popcorn

~Bike rides & walks together as a family.

~Alayna's continued great progress. She has started taking more than her "just 3" steps (most of the time). As you can see big brother is a huge motivation for her. Her self feeding using utensils, language and pretend play skills continue to flourish.

~I always pray for God to tightly bond Aidan & Alayna. I love to sit back and watch as He shows me that they truly are bonded. Alayna continues to get SUPER excited hearing or seeing the bus bringing Aidan home. (Fast forward to 55 seconds and just watch the last 10 seconds...she LOVES her brother!)

~A great start to the soccer season for Aidan (they won 7-0) however, the game was at 8am & little sister decided to sleep in so she & I missed the season opener.

We hope you have a wonderful Labor day weekend and safe travels.

We hope you have had a great week but even if you didn't we hope that you take time to reflect on at least one thing to be thankful for and leave a comment and share it with us.

I'm thankful that our school has the highest enrollment this year than they've had in the last 15!!! I love our school and want all my kids to graduate from it!

Precious! And I don't think we ever have to worry about our typical kiddo's bonding with our little angels, it happens, without a doubt, it happens!!
