30 Days of Thankfulness: November 1
Today I am thankful that my children are each others' best friends. They have other friends too, whom they love to get together and play with, but just the three of them together can have so. much. fun. The past two afternoons have been spent making cars out of cardboard boxes for their various stuffed animals to ride in. After making a car or two, they are off to make a story together, and the sounds of their cheerful voices and sound effects just makes me smile. :) I love that they all get along so well (most of the time :)) and I think homeschooling is partly to thank for this, although it is also partly just their personalities and closeness in age.
Yes, they make a mess with all this creativity and story-making. Yes, sometimes the aftermath drives me nearly insane. But someday I am going to miss the mess and the happy voices. I am choosing to treasure the moments right now, and I pray that they will always be able to maintain the special sibling friendship that they have today.
**I hope to get up a post to recap October (WHERE did that month go?!!) and set some goals for November sometime this weekend . . . we will see if it actually happens. :)
