I’m thankful for parties at our local youth center. We attended an end of summer party last weekend at the youth center and it was a lot of fun. The kids had a chance to play some fun games, had a watermelon eating contest, they made ice cream in a bag, and even their own smores. Plus, we won some great door prizes. My niece won four tickets to see the local baseball team the Arkansas Travelers. While my daughter won a $10 Moe’s gift card and I won a $15 gift card for a drive-thru carwash.
I’m thankful for end of summer washout parties at the library. Last Friday, the local fire department blocked off a road near the library and hooked up a hose to the fire hydrant and sprayed water from high up on a ladder. It was like having a really big sprinkler party. All of the kids had a ball playing running up and down the street through the shower of the fire hose.
I’m thankful for that we don’t have very many school supplies to buy. Just crayons, glue sticks, and some paper is about all we need. However, we do have to buy new curriculum for the year, which I need to order ASAP 🙂
I’m thankful for modern convinces like dishwashers, washers, dryers, vacuums, and all the things that make cleaning up easier.
I’m thankful that I’ve exercised 6 days in a row. I have been inconsistent with exercise lately, but I’m trying to get back on track.
I’m thankful that Mary from Evolve with Mary challenged her readers to turn off their devices for 1-hour each day. I needed some motivation to use my devices less.
I’m thankful that Tamara from Tamara Camera Blog had a post this week with 5 tips to help you check items off your bucket list. It’s nice to be reminded that you not only need to dream it, but you need to visualize and speak on it.
I’m thankful for air-conditioning on 100 degree plus days.
I’m even more thankful for rain that cools down 100 degree plus day.
I’m thankful for my family 🙂
