I’m popping in today to tell you all I’m thankful for you! The other day I was at a neighborhood park and someone came up to me and asked, “Are you Jessica?” Turns out she was a blog reader. She had e-mailed me once to ask about a place we had hiked, but had never commented. It was fun to chat with her, see her family, feel like we had something in common. I left wondering how many people are out there reading this. Well, to all of you, I’m thankful for you. I’m thankful for this place to share the things I actually accomplish and finish, to share what I love, to archive the best parts of my life.
I’m also thankful that the holidays are near. This whole month has been quite a challenge because Barry has been gone for training and only able to be home on weekends. I am SO thankful that I am not a single parent. I forget how disorganized and messy I naturally am when my partner in this crazy big-family-homeschooling endeavor is not around. It’s good for me to realize that I seem on top of things because he helps me so much.
So, the kids and I are heading down to Colorado Springs to try out Dad’s hotel room for a night, watch TV (oh, the things that are a treat!), take a dip in the pool, eat out… and then come home and cook some turkey.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend that is full of everything good.
