I am so glad Halloween is over, and we can move on to being "Thankful"... right?
It's a season for us to be Thankful ... and I am!
But once in a while... well,
DID anyone see all those cute fairies and princesses last night???
My boys... at the ripe "old" ages of 7 to 11 are 'too cool' to dress up anymore, much less humor me and dress up for any photos.
I liked it when they were little and I could make them dress up and take pictures.
Not that I don't LOVE my boys... and love the crazy, busy, LOUD life we live! I do!
But sometimes, I appreciate the season of life... after it's passed, much more than I did in the midst of it.
SO... as I look back at my cute photos of past Halloween's... where they were SO cute... I'm going to remember that this season...
the one I'm in right now... This is the season of my life when:
I'm able to sleep in. ( YAHHHHHOo)
I'm able to enjoy THEM putting away clothes (theirs and mine!); and get their own FOOD (usually without spilling it everywhere)
I'm able to enjoy them taking care of me, and each other.
I'm enjoying them wanting to snuggle and cuddle still (without wanting "something" from me)
I'm loving that they are becoming the "knights" albeit not in costumes... that their daddy is trying to teach them to be. (GOSH I LOVE THAT MAN!)
and a thousand other things that I couldn't have said... back in the season of our lives when they still would dress like I wanted them to, and wear their hair like I wanted them to... and smell like I wanted them to....
and go to school where I wanted them too...
But... that's another post.
Thanks a million for all your encouraging words and thoughts on our home schooling dilemma!
