We are in our first week of school. It has been an adjustment for us all....Titus missing his brother, Caleb's early mornings/long days, Daddy taking Caleb to football practice early in the morning, me making sure we get everything done in the evenings so we have smooth (early) mornings. :) He has to be at the field at 6:25. He has done great so far as we get into the swing of things.
This week I am thankful for...
~ my husband's helpfulness in our new schedule and being willing to take Caleb in the mornings.
~ my big boy enjoying his first week of 7th grade and sharing details about his day, classes, teachers, and classmates with me. He has a good schedule.
~ having fun taking my baby boy to the library story time. I loved seeing him take it all in! He was up dancing by the last song so I think he will be more involved as he gets used to it and what they do. It was so fun and just how I'd imagined/hoped it would be with the songs, books, interactions, etc.
~ visiting with my neighbor/friend today.
~ browsing at Goodwill while I waited to pick up Caleb.
~ and finally our dog Sammie.....she would not stop barking this morning. I went out and she ran to the porch and when I went back in she went back to her barking. She was by the side of the house without a direct window so I couldn't see why she was barking. She's done this before when she caught a bird or mouse. I put my shoes and went off the porch She acted weird when I tried to get off the porch, ran around me, then went back to the porch by Titus. I had a hoe and started looking around. Then I saw a snake on the side of the fence. I got back to the porch and thanked the dog. I went inside, called my husband and animal control. They were able to come get the snake. It was a rat snake. This is the 3rd one we've had in our backyard in the nearly 6 years we've lived here. I could not believe the man came and picked it up with bare hands! I saw him take it to his truck and put it in a little bucket. I was thankful for the dog warning us about it as Titus and I had been going out in the mornings to play with her this week. It would have really scared me if I'd come upon that in the yard without warning!
Have a day of blessings!
