one hour left

There is just one hour of school left... Tuesday morning! I am so happy to have Goosie home for the Summer! Hot, lazy days of Summer are my thing!!! I cannot wait to spoil them both... because Boomer will begin Preschool in the Fall. Where did the time go this year?

How I view it

Today is the last full day of Kindergarten for my little Goosie. Goosie is a marvelous girl. She reads like a champ, is extremely thoughtful, loves to draw and is down right witty.
Today is her class party. I get to join in and do the craft for the class. Class parties are a priveledge for parents... as I see it. We get to have that chance to interact with friends that she is going to have for quite some time. This is the chance to show her that I love being a part of her life.
I am lucky. I don't work full time. I think working moms are awesome! I don't get the whole division between stay-at-home moms and working moms. I don't see how one mom can fault the other... it should just be a celebration of being a mom and doing the best you can... if you are at home or you are working!
That's how I view it.

Yesterday... I was full of grumbles.
I grumbled about everything.
I forgot to be thankful.
And. Grateful.
I am thankful for...
beautiful children
a patient husband
being asked to do things at the last minute because that means someone knows I can deliver
a cute new dog
a yard with weeds because that means I have a yard and a home to go with it
an achy body because that means I am here on Earth to enjoy it all.

The Great Neglect...

I would like to apologize for the neglect this blog has received lately. Hopefully, the family emergencies will cease... I will have more energy... AND the new dog in the house will settle in nicely! It is never dull in Goosie and Boomer land. I just forget to share it sometimes! ;)
