My parents are in town this weekend. I am grateful that they are expecting to move here - to the house we own across the street! - next summer.
I am grateful for my my clean car; I took a nap with the kids and my mother washed, vacuumed and detailed the whole thing. I don't know what the kids will snack on now that the stray Cheerios and Goldfish have been removed from between their carseats. Look - you can see the carpet!
I am grateful for spring! We spent the whole day outside - playground in the morning and a hike at a nearby wildflower preserve in the afternoon. Warm sun, sweet smelling air, and grandparents. Nothing better, save for weekends when Homestead Mama can join too.
I am grateful to be able to tell my parents all the time that I love them, that I see now, as a parent myself, how hard it was to raise three kids close in age and do such a good job of it. I am grateful I had kids in time for them to have a chance to know and adore their grandparents.
