I know this is a few days late.
But it has been one of those weeks.
In fact it has been one of those months.
With so much to do and so little time.
You know what I'm talking about.
With the kids back to school and the whole routine down pat, homework and activities and work, well there's just barely enough time for us to get home, eat, shower and sleep.
Which is why I am thankful for the little things.
Things like taking a day off from school and work and just going down to the State Fair ('cause I'm a cool mom like that)
little things like swimming lessons that my boys are finally comfortable with
little things - like my little guy finally being able to
take the training wheels off his bike and
taking to the open sidewalk and just
and cool fall nights
and cool crisp mornings
and wearing a sweater :)
These are the things that make me stop and smile
I actually sit down and watch my little guy and my big guy at the pool take to the water (even if the chlorine smell gets to me and makes my eyes water!)
I sit and watch
I look at my little guy ride up and down our street on his bike all proud-like while my daughter washes
her car on our driveway
I just sit on the porch
and take time out
It's the little things :)
How do you enjoy such moments?
