More Than a Little Behind

Life has a way of dragging you in and not spitting you back out, doesn't it?  I think I am in the spin cycle of three kids right now.  It's not a bad thing--I am fully enjoying (most of) it.  Balance is just a bit hard to find some days.  Fun things such as blogging are forced to the back seat.  I do want to post my kiddos' thankful lists for this year so that I can look back on them someday with all the other thankful lists.  Here goes:

Is there a male American child who isn't thankful for Legos? Great idea to do gratitude lists.

I am often thankful for fans, but not so often in November! What a cute idea and record. It would be fun to watch their wheels turn as they thought up ideas...
