November 2010 Gratitude Challenge Day 2

I am thankful for my husband and my children. 

My husband is such a wonderful man. 

He is a great provider and father. 

He is the type of person that would rather take on two or three jobs rather than have me go to work. 

He has always been supportive of  homeschooling, in fact it was his idea.

My kiddo's are very sweet, and even though they sometimes argue, they love each other so much, and are best friends.

My daughter loves to read, draw, write, sew, and play her keyboard. She is talented at many things. She has learned to play the keyboard all by herself. The keyboard teaches you, and she and my five year old son, have both learned to play it well. (OK, the 5 year old can play a few things only!)

My son is sooo sweet. All he wants to do is catch crickets and other bugs outside. In fact the other day, I asked him if he was ready for me to teach him to read, and he said, 'No way! Maybe when I'm 15!", Such a character, and then a few minutes later he came back and said, "Maybe you better teach me now, because when we move, I will be too busy outside catching crickets and other stuff that I won't have time to learn how to read!" He cracks me up!

My husband and I have been married for almost 14 years, and we love each other more every year it seems.

Aren't they sweet? We had such fun on this trip! This was at Sulpher Springs!!! FUN!!!

I am so grateful to the Lord for blessing me with such a wonderful family. I couldn't ask for a better family! (I could possibly ask to add to it though! lol)

The love you have for your husband and kids just shines through in this post. You have a great looking family. You captured some great moments.

Your son would love it at our house as we have loads of crickets. They're all over the place. My daughter is always catching the ones that make it inside and placing them back outside. ;)
