Awesome day!

Today was just a great day! I thoroughly enjoyed all of it! Some friends came over to visit and hang out this morning, and my kids love getting to play with their friends. Then, after naptime we were so excited b/c it was Lawson's first tee-ball game!! We got some very cute video and pictures, which I will try to post later this week (too tired now), and Lawson really had a lot of fun. After the game we got pizza and went over to the park with Jason and Sunny. The kids and the dads ended up running around playing soccer and football and it was really neat for me and Sunny to sit at the picnic table watching our kids acting so big!! It was also nice to just sit and visit and talk. I just LOVED this day!

Tonight, Lawson said the sweetest prayer. Many months ago he was in the phase of thanking God for EVERY LITTLE THING, but lately it's been a one or two phrase prayer and that's it. Tonight, though, out of nowhere he said,

Dear God,
Thank you for the sun and the clouds in the blue sky. And thank you for my frog and thank you for giving me my monkey. And thank you for my Mommy and my Daddy. And thank you for my great day with my friends.
In Jesus' name, Amen.

Ahhh...there's nothing sweeter.

I second that thought....Thank you God, for this great day! :)



Awww...I'm happy you had a great day and I'm even more happy that me and my kids got to be a part of it. :) I'm really thankful that I have friends in my life that are in the same stage of life as me. I can't imagine not having that. I'm glad that we've started getting together more to have some mom time and to let the kids play. Maybe we can come see Lawson and Joshua play some time. Do ya'll have a schedule? I love Lawson's prayer that he said. He is so smart and sweet. We've been asking our kids who they want to thank God for each night before praying and they'll say different people..."mommy, daddy, sissy, mimi, pop, nana, grampie, etc." I think it's so sweet.

I'm also glad that we have blogs where we can write this stuff down. I'm so afraid I'm going to forget a lot of this stuff that my kids are doing at this stage. Recording it all here will be a blessing to look back on someday, in my opinion.
