Gratitude Sunday

Nola in her little bonnet.
  • Snow fluttering down from the still, white sky this morning. Lot's of squeals of delight and jumping on  beds.
  • A lovely fat stack of new library books!
  • Seraphina calling her new shoes "clippy clops"
  • The first snowdrops, peeping through the ground.
  • Boo's excitement at dissecting owl pellets! "Wow, look, bones!"
  • Lovely comments from our annual home school inspection. More than the comments about the girls work, which I was nervous didn't amount to enough "evidence". I was most touched when she said how warm and loving the atmosphere of our home felt. That is everything to me.
  • Watching a fun old movie together curled up on the sofa.
  • Going on a date to see a late showing of The Hobbit and feeling a bit teenagerish :)
  • Starting a really interesting read. And hoping to see the film soon too!
