The summer is fast coming to an end, and I realized that my last post was pretty sad, and although I cried all the tears I could in a short time period, the effects have lingered it seems. It has been a stretch to be in a thankful mindset, although that is extremely selfish to admit. But, I find myself on enjoying a week with John at home, and I have so many things to be thankful for.
31. a husband on vacation
32. a car that has been paid off! Woohoo!
33. lemonade pie
34. being a part of a team (Go Team Knippers!) that makes decisions for our family together. We went preschool shopping today, and I can legitimately say that John is in on the decision making process just as much as I am.
35. comfortable pajamas
36. A sweet friend who added another addition to her family last week. Welcome to the world, baby Ben!
37. One word: Schlitterbahn
We took the youth to Schlitterbahn last Thursday, and it was a total blast. We did have to wait in monumentally long lines, but I had a great time hanging out with the kids and soaking up some rays...
38. two words: no sunburn
...but not too many rays!!!!!!
40. an affectionate little girl
