“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.” ~Cicero
November has been full of life. We have done and seen so much that it's been hard to keep track of. I'm glad I enjoy taking pictures otherwise I wouldn't know up from down. We are so blessed by what we are able to take part in, and the Lord has provided so many wonderful opportunities for us to enjoy with loved ones.
We also went up for a spontaneous weekend at Disney with Uncle Casey and Aunt Kaitlyn. Lots of rides, food, and sunshine later made for a wonderful day of magic. It was fun because C and K were able to buddy up and do the big kid rides while we went and did Connor rides. Hashtag perfect!
Mike and Sully = BFFs
I am so grateful that Connor spends his day with Grandma Glenda. It's always perfect for when my school has events because he is able to enjoy the fun as well. Connor had fun at Truck Day, and loved climbing all over the helicopter and fire truck. There were also police cars and ATVs that he was able to climb in/on as well. The next day was Career Day and he was an excellent assistant to Captain Glenda Guise who came to show a 5th grade class her gear and hear her great stories. It brought back so many memories of when mom and dad would come to my school on Career Day. They were always the highlight of the day and my school friends still bring up how much fun they were. I have a feeling we will need to visit the fire station very soon.
Connor is also very easily writing his name....anywhere and everywhere. Grandma's preschool is pretty awesome!!
We got to enjoy a day with our church family for an early Thanksgiving celebration complete with a full spread of yummy food and lots of things for the kids to do. Connor's favorite is the tractor ride and this year they even set up a fun outdoor movie. Blankets were spread and little kids were transfixed. It was so precious.
There is so much reflection done around the holidays. We are so lucky to be able to travel, have our health, and put food on the table. I am so blessed by the people I call family and that we enjoy so much time together. That we are truly there for each other through thick and thin. I have experienced the opposite, and know what it's like to not have that. I'm grateful Connor doesn't know the difference. In his life he is fully loved and blessed, and that's all that matters. Now, only 25 days until Christmas!
