Thankfulness - Day 15

Today I am thankful for:

- a potential source of funding to get Ashlea a swingset;

Can you believe this costs $800 just for the seat???

- the neighbour's swingset to use in the meantime;

- the fact that even though Ashlea is getting way too big for the neighbour's swingset we haven't had to call the fire brigade to cut her out of it - yet;

- encouraging news on the spa front;

- bumping into a friend at the shops - which sounds like such a little thing - but some days when you think how on earth am I going to get through the day God provides a friend at just the right time;

- time for a quick nanna nap before school pickup;

- the patience of Emma's teacher who has been put through her paces this year with Emma's anxiety.  Today she had to tape 3x1m rulers together to retrieve one of Emma's things from the classroom roof;

- Ashlea's ability to amuse herself for hours by yelling POO at the ipad so that it mimics her;

- dinner outside on a beautiful spring evening;

What are you thankful for today?

Ashlea you and pep would get along so well! She spells poo everyday then adds to it laughing at her made up poo words!
What was on the roof?
We love our nest swing!

Why is talking about poo always funny?

It was a toy that she takes to school as a security item. It had been in her bag and someone threw it onto the roof. Don't know it if was a random act or if it was payback because she busted a little boy jumping over the balcony railing yesterday. Aaahh - the joy of schoolyard politics!

Today I'm thankful
1. I'm no longer in school.
2. I had a great day working in Melbourne visiting two different universities.
3. For the little grey tabby who was waiting in the courtyard even though I didn't get home till 9:00.

Oh I think Jax could use a swing chair like that! Its so frustrating when they can't swing because there isn't one that they can use!

Glad Emma's teacher is taking care of her. Hope that spa comes soon!
