Last week was a very unusual week for us with Mara off to Iowa at camp and the boys attending day camp up here. It was a week of a lot of running around and also one which I got to spend more individual time with Megan. Then this past weekend Ken and Jonathan went down to the cities to pick Mara up and go to an amusement park while the younger two and I made and delivered wedding flowers and had a good time going to garage sales. It was a fun week but I am very glad to have things back to normal again with everybody home and on a more regular schedule. I am feeling very thankful for my family and God's care for all of us.
Here are so more specifics on what I am feeling thankful for today:
#636 My little sunshine (not what is pictured above but rather Megan who wanted to take that picture). It was so fun running errands with her this week. One thing that was different about taking just one child with me is that people paid more attention to her. She was rather spoiled about everywhere we went. The big sunshine was a gift from the vacuum store lady and she got other gifts from other places as well.
#637 A letter from Mara. I love it that she took the time to write it while she was busy at camp.
#638 Having company over for lunch.
#639 Sunshine again! I appreciated all the rain but I certainly am enjoying the sunshine too!
#640 The 3 "M's", Margaret, Malia and Mara and all the fun they can have together.
#641 Mara getting to go see my Grandma along with my sister Anna and crew on their way to camp.
