I’m sitting in my kitchen listening to my kids fight. What is up with all the fighting. Is it September? Is it that my kids are bad? Really, I don’t think so. I’m not sure if they are getting sick or what. We have all had cold symptoms for the last two days.
I also thought we had pink eye but my sister reassures me it is ragweed allergies. She said this is the worse time for it. I’ve never known what all I was allergic to but my eyes water all the time when I go outside. This morning, I pretty much looked like a red eye monster.
Even with all of the fighting and illnesses, I realize every day that God is so good. He has blessed me with a family that I am so thankful for. My kids are loving, most of the time; happy, most of the time, a blessing ALL of the time. My family is so rich. I don’t mean in money (although compared to the rest of the world, we are that too). I mean we have more than enough to supply our every need. Food, shelter, clothes, love, friends, family.
We are truly a blessed family. Tomorrow is Labor Day and we will rest along with most of the rest of the country. I am looking forward to a slow day and then on to a great school week. We are learning about Ancient Egypt. I ordered a kit from Hears and Hands that I can’t wait to arrive. It has hands on activities for the kids to do. I also ordered Life of Fred for math. I’m really excited about that. I sure hope the kids love it like I think they will.
