It's Friday already. Last Monday my sweet Grandpa passed away. We drove up to Minnesota for the funeral and to help my mom with the house.
This week I'm thankful for our memories, family, and all those little things
that really are
the big things.
The kids came to the visitation and the funeral. I was torn about this but a good family friend and pastor told me his thoughts. He said kids should be allowed to go but not forced. They should not be made to see anything they don't want to see. We should answer any questions they have and use the opportunity to witness our faith to them.
God gives us promises and
we can trust
Mom's cousin, Amy, brought a great book to read to the kids after the funeral. So thankful for her kindness!
It was cold while we were there. We made it just in time to see -23 degrees.
But it was beautiful.
Driving into Duluth on the way home.
Thankful for my sweet girl and her big heart.
Noah said the hotel room looked beautiful. We all agreed.
After a week that was both long and short at the same time, the kids were so glad to get home. Moo was glad to see us too.
I took the kids to Sweet Ce Ce's for frozen yogurt after school Wednesday for something fun.
I'm thankful for routine. Dropping kids off, picking them up, homework, snuggles, family time. It all seems more important this week.
