Thursday Thanks Tank #89

This week has been busy- busier than I would like. The boys are at the end of some activities (preschool, swimming lessons) and the beginning of others (T-ball and Coach Pitch baseball). We didn't recognize how busy we would be this week. Thursday is promising to be a busy day. I will spend my day (in between the crazy choas of activity) being thankful. I hope you take time to do the same.

Topping my Thanks list this week is (no surprise here)...

1. David's was okay not long after his allergic reaction. I am keenly aware that it could have been worse.

I am also thankful...

2. I am slowly and surely working through my emotions related to David's allergic reaction. Thank you to those of you that have kept me on your heart and in your prayers.

3. I am thankful that my little girl does not throw fits very often. She has been throwing a few fits lately. Here's a short clip.

4. I am thankful for the incredible experience David had at preschool. (His preschool graduation was last night.) His teachers were wonderful. They taught him, nurtured him and protected him. I am thankful they were so understanding and accommodating with regards to his allergy.
Here he is showing off his "All About Me" book.

5. I am thankful for baking. I made a bunch of goodies for David's graduation and I really enjoyed baking. I tried out 2 new recipes. (They were DE-li-cious! I may post the recipes tomorrow so stop by.)

6. I am thankful for my husband. I could go on and on here but... I don't want to make you think I am cheesy. Trust me, I am happy with my man. Here he is with my daughter last night at the reception.

7. I am thankful for sunshine. It has been beautiful here. I have almost forgotten what the rainy northwest is like. Almost.

8. I am thankful for holiday weekends. We had a great weekend. We spent time with friends. We celebrated a birthday. We hung out around a bonfire (and made s'mores). We spent an afternoon watching the kids act crazy (play on a trampoline, slip n' slide, and pool). We laughed. We played. We took it easy. It was very nice.

9. I am thankful that this week I rediscovered my love of bike riding and roller-blading.

10. I am thankful for my favorite people. Here's a picture of them when we celebrated my husband's birthday. (Oh ya, the #1 candle was the only candle I could find. Seth said it was a perfect candle for TN so I let him have his moment.)

Take a moment today to be thankful for your blessings. There's no denying it, you have a lot that you can appreciate.

I always love your Thursday posts!!

You're right, we do have so much to be thankful for!

Carmom said...

As always I too love your Thanks Tank post. Thank you for introducing me to this activity. I love to bike ride as well. We got bikes last year and love doing it as a family. Roller blading on the other hand is not something I think I will try again. I am not ready for the hospital again so soon! I am so glad that David is doing well and that you are working through your feelings. I hope you have a great weekend.

Just like Alicia and Carmom, I enjoy your Thursday Thanks posts, too!

We've also had a busy bunch of days - today is our first day of summer break! What are we doing today? Staying inside or on the porch while it rains.... But at least our garden is being watered!

Please post your recipes! We are still making those yummy orange/blueberry muffins!

So glad that David is OK, and I can't imagine how scary that must have been for all of you. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your experience with us - allergy moms or not - because it's something we all needed to hear.

I think we have your rain right now! We'll be in the rainy northwest later on this summer. Hope we will get to enjoy some sun while we're there!

But she's so cute throwing that fit! It's so funny because she seems so cheery and happy, but inside lurks a tantrum waiting to come out :)

Your Thankful list is wonderful this week. I have videoed my kids fits too. Hers is me. She is still cute all over that floor. What a doll baby.
We have had cloudy weather the past two days, but our long weekend was perfect. So thankful!
have a blessed day friend.

Did you refuse to give her grits? ;) Cutie patootie even throwing a fit. You are on my heart and in my prayers. I'm glad you are working thru your emotions. And so very glad David is okay.

So glad your son is o.k. That would have freaked me out too! Oh my goodness!!!!!

(My hubby is always calmer than I am when it comes to the kids, thank the Lord).

Love your daughter's hissy fit, as I do remember my kids having 'em, lol!
