precious day

What a blessing!

We didn't have school on Friday, so we were able to get everything done that needed doing, and spend today as a relaxed family day.
I sure needed it!

When I woke up this morning, Jadon was already awake. He spent about an hour very gently running his fingers through my hair.
 At one point he said, "Mom, your hair is like a fidget (for those of you who have kids with sensory issues, you know the value of a good fidget!)."
Oh my! We laughed at that one!

We had a leisurely breakfast, did some crafts, had a family quiet time (the kids love when we do this), walked the dogs and had a wonderful leaf fight!

Later in the afternoon, we surprised the kids with a trip to get snacks and see the movie, Dolphin Tale. I would definitely recommend seeing this movie. I cried and cried at the end (for reasons that I'll be able to share one day).

We came home to dinner in the crock pot, family prayer time and then it was off to bed.
What a precious day.
Father, you're so good to us!

I'm so glad you had this sweet day.

Yup, your family needed to see that movie.

Prayers for paperwork that continues to move. Jennifer

We had Thurs and Fri off of school and had a great time, too! Wish we had a tree big enough in our yard to have a leaf pile! Fun!
Haven't seen Dolphin Tale, but have heard it is very good.

I love these photos. Especially the one with you and all of the kids. What a beautiful picture! I have to say, the leaves in Colorado are much more colorful than the ones here in MN.

What a fun day your family had. I really enjoyed looking at the photos of y'all having fun in the leaves. :)
