I am lovin' these slightly cool October mornings. I pulled out the boys winter clothes, but haven't convinced them to give up the shorts quite yet.
Notice how Coleman has 2 backpacks?
This morning was one of those moments that made my Mother heart happy:)
Bridger was in charge of snack time for his kindergarten class today--so I put a very large bag of animal crackers in his backpack. I was worried that it would be too heavy for him. Coleman heard me talking and gallantly insisted on carrying it for his little brother!
That little act of kindness MADE MY DAY! Coleman has sweetly taken extra good care of our new little kindergartner boy. I am lovin'that--it makes up for some of the obnoxious teasing that this cute 9 year olds finds so hilarious:)
Front porch autumn blooms are getting full! We are going to add some pumpkins soon:)
I made this 'Boo' banner this year. It was really easy and fun to make. In case you are in need of some Halloween decor, I will show you how I did it tomorrow.
Great finds the day after Halloween at TJ Maxx and Target:)
I love this little saying. Isn't true? Home Is Where our Story Begins.
It is such a good reminder for me.
I want so much to create the beginnings of a beautiful happy story for my boys in this home.
Making good memories and traditions that will bring happiness and warmth throughout their lives, especially during those challenging times that we all struggle through at one time or another.
That is the reason I put so much into every holiday and season
I hope my children will always enjoy and celebrate life finding joy in the simple things.
I was just thinking about a dear friend who did not come from a happy home. Her parents were divorced, unhappy and things were tough--but she has seriously overcome the not so great beginning of her story. Although she can not rewrite the past, she has chosen to let it go and create a happy life for herself and and her family now. I just thought I would add that thought--I am so inspired with people like that--who choose to be happy no matter what life hands them.
We always have that choice--what a blessing!
