It’s the little things…

Today we did something out of the ordinary. No, not something grand and elaborate…just something different. This morning the boys and I sat snuggled on the couch eating popcorn while we watched The Wizard of Oz. To some this may not seem like a big deal but to the boys it was. I mean, we had popcorn…for breakfast!

It’s the little things like this that I’m so thankful for. Since we cyber school we have the ability to do school at whatever time works best for us. It also let’s us play hooky for the morning to watch a moving together all snuggled on the couch. Moments like that are moments that the boys will remember. Memories they will hopefully treasure some day.

I am so very thankful that God has made it possible for me to stay home with my boys. Yes there are days that I want to run away screaming but then there are also mornings like today. Mornings that remind my why I am bless. I am also thankful for the blessing of cyber school. It allows me to school the boys in the comfort of our own home and gives us the ability to have a very flexible schedule. People often ask us why we choose this way to school but I’ll save that for another post.

For now I’ll just leave you with this. Seize the little things when they present themselves. Live on the edge and be spontaneous every once in a while. You never what kind of awesome memories you’ll make!
