Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

Simply Saturday

With Paul out of town on business this weekend, the kids and I had no big plans. We had a lazy morning and then did some light housework. But mostly, we just enjoyed a simple day. The boys did a lot of reading, which is one of their favorite activities. Isabel played with Barbies, when she wasn't searching baby name books for names for our next child! WHAT? Yeah, she's convinced that we are soon going to adopt a boy and a girl from AMBIOPIA!? Where? I finally figured out that she meant Ethiopia! OH MY GOODNESS! Before anyone gets any ideas, we have no plans to have any more children.............anytime soon. :)

Late in the afternoon, we went out for some exercise.

Hmmm... well, Isabel got some exercise!

Most of our weekends are filled with kids sports activities, errand running, home improvement and yard work. Don't worry, I'm sure we'll be back on tract soon! But today.....

today we just hung out and hung around.

Our week days are so crazy these days with homeschool for 3 children, activities for Claire, doctor's appointments and just keeping up with the house. I got the chance to just breathe today and think about how thankful I am for everything. All the children are healthy, Lizzie is having the time of her life in college, Paul is employed (so many are not right now), we have a roof over our heads (and it isn't leaking anymore!!), and food in the pantry. "Plus also", (can you tell, I've been reading Junie B. Jones to Isabel!) we have wonderful family and friends for support and that is the "bestest thing I love!"...what more could I ask for! Oh, for Paul to come home! Hurry honey, we miss you!
