I’m thankful for being able to spend time with my family. Last night we went to Pirate Night at the library and it was a lot of fun for the whole family.
I’m thankful for Fall and cooler temperatures. Yesterday, we went to a walk while it was lightly raining.
I’m thankful that my son fearlessly tackles science experiments. He found how to make a DIY water filter in a Ruff Ruffman book that he checked out from the library. It was a really cool experiment and it there was a noticeable difference. I think the water would have been clearer if he had used less yellow food color to make his water dirty. But there was very little dirt in the water.
My son made a DIY water filter for his science for today. It actually removed a lot of the dirt from the water. Not enough to drink the water but there was a very noticeable difference from the original dirty water that he started with. #homeschool #science #learning #diy #waterfilter #scienceexperiment #ruffruffman #pbskids
I’m thankful that I’m almost finished painting my daughter’s room. It’s taken me a lot longer than I thought it would. I thought I could knock it out in a weekend, but I’m on week three. I only have to finish painting the trim and then I will be done. 🙂 I think I can paint the trim this weekend. (Ok…It’s Monday today and I still need to paint a second coat on the trim)
I’m thankful that Jello-O has new Simply Good line of puddings and jello without dyes. My kids have never eaten jello because of the dyes. So I was really happy to see there are jello options with dyes. I try to avoid buying foods with dyes so I’m always happy to see dye-free options (and my son just reminded me that I also like products with all natural vegetable dyes :)…because he is standing beside me reading this as I type it).
I’m thankful for trips to the zoo.
I’m thankful that the zoo put up fences to prevent falls into the primate exhibits. I’ve always been nervous viewing the primate exhibits because you always see kids climbing up on the rails and you don’t want anyone falling over into the exhibit.
I’m thankful that we survived our first family camping trip and enjoyed it a lot.
I’m thankful that my daughter is reading better. Now she is sitting in my lap and reading all the words she knows.
I’m thankful that this election is getting closer. I’m tired of the Donald. I truly hope that we have our first female president and that we can stop hearing about Donald Trump on a daily basis.
I’m thankful for having a kid vegetarian because he makes a lot of stuff. He loves pumpkin corn muffins, yogurt cup cakes, and spaghetti (he’s back :)…he wanted me to write the above, but I’m really thankful that he is such a sweet and helpful boy).
I’m thankful that I finished sewing our matching mother-daughter dresses. I just need to find time for us to take pictures in the dresses while we still have 80 plus degree weather.
I’m thankful that my kids are such good homeschool students most of the time. I started writing this on Friday morning, but when it was time to start working on lessons my kids told me to turn off the computer so we could get started. Now I’m finishing this post up on Monday morning.
