Thankful Thursday: January 14, 2016

It's Thursday, yo!

We have the piano guys blasting, Miss N is dancing in (the third, so far today) a twirly dress, Miss A is making her rounds from one of pile of toys to another, Mr J is doing his morning reading by the front window, Mr N is gathering his things in a shopping cart. Life is good.

We are headed out in a few minutes to take the boys to their homeschool co-op classes (every Thursday: art, music, karate, & lego science).

I have just enough time to get my thankful list up:
