I am grateful for family fun night. It was Cooper’s pick. He chose bowling. I think that might be the first time I’ve gone bowling since I’ve had kids. I’d forgotten how much fun it is.
I am grateful for a telescope I’ve had in a box under my bed since Santa brought it for our family last Christmas. I finally got that thing set up tonight, and I pointed it at the moon. It was quite the sight to behold, and I even got a pretty good photo by holding my phone up to the eyepiece.
Nothing like a telescope to blow one’s mind thinking about how close and far away things are, how big the universe is, how insignificant we are, and what a privilege it is to be able to observe the world around us.
I am grateful for a better day today than I had yesterday.
I am grateful for my first day back on the acoustic bike in a while; my knee was giving me issues but now it’s not so bad. The bike ride this morning helped me have a clearer head all day.
I am grateful for Beavers. It was already dark for almost 2 hours before we met on the beach, but flashlights, scavenger hunts, chasing soap bubbles, campfire songs and hot chocolate were better without the sun anyway.
I am grateful for Coop, who loved having his own kid size shopping cart at the grocery store today.
