Beyond Blessed

As I write this post I am feeling beyond blessed. What a wonderful day it has been!

Off they went to 1st & 3rd grade. And no, I obviously don't have the kids who are nervous for the first day of school. They were so exited!

We spent our morning watching "The Letter Factory". That's counts as school for a 3 year old right? I thought so {and so did he}.

During nap time I went through all my worship songs for church this week. Can't think of a better way to spend my afternoon.


Baby C woke up from her nap like this...enough said.

After school we got to make one of these for his math book. Hello? Can you say flashback? I hadn't made one of these grocery bag covers since high school! I pointed out to W that my last book cover had " I Love Bill" written all over it, to which he replied, "gross!" I think it worked out pretty good 19 years later.

Ending my day by cooking dinner with my little helper and then off to worship rehearsal.


There are days I am overwhelmed by God's goodness. Overwhelmed by the little ways he blesses me each day. Grateful doesn't really begin to describe it. I am humbled.

That certainly is a blessed day! You are so lucky your kids go to school with smiles on their faces. Mine would rather be on a permanent vacation :)

I am stopping by from The Wiegands and am proud to say I am your newest follower! The world needs the kind of gratitude you have! I wake up every single morning, still in awe of my miracle baby girl's existence...she is nearly 19 months old. I love celebrating the impossible, isn't it a wonderful way to live? I'm so thrilled to have found your blog and already love your heart!

Happy Monday!
