5 Things I'm Thankful For Today

1. My new amazing Electra Townie. A pink bicycle with double wicker baskets.


{Be still my heart}

2. Doing school and artwork outside in the sunshine.


Above, my Littlest's math work, out on the driveway.




Below, his science work.


He's guessing which objects will sink and which will float,


and then testing his theories.

3. Spring!!


Blooming peonies, dewdrops on leaves, and all the beauty that goes along with it!

4. The sign my husband bought at Hobby Lobby. I wasn't laughing at the time, but it sure helped deter some solicitors today. Bahaaa.

(excuse the pic. Wrong settings, still funny, just go with it.)


and 5. Eating fresh greens straight from the garden.



Chard- yum!



I joined a group on facebook called the Gratitude Journal. Every evening the members write five things that they are grateful for that day. It's been a wonderful exercise for me, a constant reminder of the many blessings in my life.
Today my Middlest Boy asked if I was rich (my younger two still don't have a great concept of money yet) and I explained that, while I don't have a lot of money, I am certainly rich!


What are you grateful for on this fine day?
