Ten Things: September 2010

It feels like Emmy posts her Ten Things earlier and earlier each month, but it could just be my increased dismay with the entire year slipping right past us. I admire her efficiency and always love that she shares her grateful heart so easily, but I can't post one day sooner than the end of the month.  I need every day I can get to savor the moments and little occasions that may never come again.

The kiddos getting off to a great start in the new school year

The YouTube video that E found that helped him teach The Athlete how to ride a bike in less than five minutes.

AND the Athlete loving riding a bicycle {his sister's} so much that he proudly went to the bank to withdraw his recycling money from savings to buy his own two-wheeler

Our kids making memories with their only living Great Grandparent

A belated birthday gift that included margaritas, a great concert and some much needed adult time with my One and Only

The Princess playing her first season ever of soccer, and loving every minute of it
Go Rainbow Superstars!

This crazy clown who thinks he is ALL business with his new student desk

My little rose garden that reminds me of my Nanny

A gracious, and patient Lord that lets me be my cranky, ugly, ungrateful self for as long as it takes and welcomes me back with open arms.  No questions asked
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
~ Psalm 23

Sounds like a great smiling list!

You are so right on the last one. Amazing how forgiving and willing to forgive he is. You look beautiful in the picture with your husband. I have started doing the lists on the last Tuesday of the month for consistency but if a month ends on a Monday I might just wait a bit :)
