|Ashlea pretending to sleep to show you what it looks like when|
children sleep in past 9am - no way was I going to risk waking any
of them up with an ACTUAL sleeping child photo!!
Today I am thanking God for:
7. School holiday sleep ins - none of my children were awake before 9am today;
8 A bit of ingenuity and practical thinking. I needed to inflate something today so I used the jumping castle pump rigged up to ever decreasing hose pipes until I could hold the hose in front of the little blow hole thingy (you know like on a beach ball) and get it blown up without having to expend too much of my own energy;
9. A successful outing to the shops with the girls today. They had Christmas money to spend and it was burning a hole in their pockets. They all bought toys rather than gadgets so it was a double win - the outing counted as screen free time and the things they bought will lead to yet more screen free time.
Also last night's spider killing moment for those of you who didn't see it on Facebook is worthy of mention again. I am thankful that Carolin spotted this blighter BEFORE he had got into my car. I am thankful that I was able to successfully dismember him without him crawling up my leg. I am thankful that for now I will not have to repeat the 'huntsman on the visor while driving' experience.
2 Thess 5: 16-18
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
