I was walking to my car after work – a bit grumpy quite honestly. I wore the wrong shoes for the number of trips back and forth across campus I ended up making. I did not get a project done that I needed to finish up. And I was grumbly about where I ended up having to park – which wouldn’t have made me grumpy if my feet didn’t hurt and I wasn’t tired of the cold wishing for Spring.
Just as I got to my car I noticed a yard covered in purple crocus. I have never seen so many crocus at one time. They were just beautiful! It was as if God was saying to me, “Stop being so grumpy and notice all these blessings around you.” I probably would have just walked on by if there had just been one or two or three. But I’m glad I paused. I took a moment to stand in awe of these little purple flowers that were defying the gray, cold day and begging me to be happy. And so I was.
What made you happy today?
What better way to spend winter than in Hawaii! This is the set up at my daughter’s school! They got on an “airplane” and flew to Hawaii. They spent a couple weeks learning about the state, tourism, music, food, and more, then finished it up with a Luau for the parents!
We are so tickled with how quickly Little Miss has progressed this year with her reading! She loves to lay in bed at night and try to pick out words she knows or can sound out in her books. I found her sound asleep like this the other night. I could take this very same picture of her daddy most nights too. She gets it honestly.
I didn’t manage to get my camera to many games this year. This is one of my favorite photos from the season. We will definitely miss Sam O. next season!
Getting ready for “fancy tea party.”
We had a family photo session during the holidays when we were all together.
New business pics for Pop, family pics, new pics of my sister and her husband, and anything else we managed to capture in the couple hours of craziness!
I love that Little Miss prefers creating handmade cards for her friends rather than buying them from the store. Such concentration to get every one just right.
