Thankful Sunday

Another week gone. Another week closer to spring!!!

Today I am thankful that the temps have gone way up! The last couple of days were in the forties.

The girls(Sophia and Bella) have a gymnastics meet today in Boston. I am thankful for a good friend who is taking Emilia for the day and another friend who is taking Andrew. It would be cruel and unusual punishment to take them along. It's going to be a loooong day.

I'm thankful that Sophia's toe is better. She fell off the beam in practice a little over a week ago and sprained it pretty badly. It caused her to miss the meet last weekend.

I'm thankful for some sweet words of encouragement from two very dear bloggy friends. Liz and Carol. They are two awesome moms who have been there and done what we are all in the middle of doing. I am so blessed to have met you.

And I'm thankful that I have you all to please say a prayer for Sophia and Bella today. That they stay safe and do their best. I always get a little nervous during these meets.

And I know I say this a lot, but I am so thankful that I have you all to share Emilia's accomplishments with. You know what it's like to wait months and months for your child to just turn the page of a book. It's such a victory! And in turn I am so glad that you are sharing your children's accomplishments with me. It's really a hoot to celebrate "firsts" with you!

Have a blessed Sunday!

It hasn't been all that warm here, but at least we haven't had any snow storms for a few weeks. But now our air is horrible. Oh how I long for California!!

Hope your girls had a safe and successful meet. I understand your worry. We don't want to hold our kids back, but when activities they love come with their share of risk, it can be hard not to worry. Have a great week!

All the best to Sophia and Bella I hope everything went well. Thanks for your thankful post, it's so wonderful to think back about the things that really matter and we are thankful for, so easy to take everything for granted sometimes. Love that picture of Emmie, she looks so amazingly big suddenly! I too love to read about every new thing all our little ones do, like I said earlier nothing is too small to get excited about!
