Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for:
1. Seeing the salmon spawning. It was so beautiful and inspiring!

2.  Being able to go to the BC Lions game as a family.  There is an organization called Kids Up Front which provides tickets to children (and adults) who have challenging circumstances (ex. being a foster family).  

3.  Lunch with my family.  It was nice to go out with all of the adults and just talk and...pig out.  Newlands has such a big buffet!  

4.  Gorgeous skies.  Were they always this beautiful growing up and I just never noticed?

5.  Family day at Castle Fun Park.  Basically the Lions game plus Castle Fun Park made it the "best weekend ever".

6.  Time to read.  I have three parenting books on the go right now. I know, it's a bit much but we have so many factors to deal with!

7. Strollers.  I know, she's too old for it but she has a respiratory bug this week which just takes away all of her energy...her poor little lungs need to grow!

8.  The changing of seasons.  I'll have to remember what I love about nature in winter but for now, this is pretty :) 

9.  Sorel boots for $5 each.  We're ready for the winter!  I love finding them boots secondhand–I can't imagine having to pay full price for four kids.

10.  Time to myself.  This year I have several hours by myself each week and next year I will likely have more as Nya will be in kindergarten part time.  Although I will likely work a bit more, I am really looking forward to adventuring at least one day a week.  Fingers crossed.

What is something that you are thankful for today?
