It’s 11:00 pm as I type this, so technically it is still Thursday. I’m working at “game time” no doubt! Nonetheless, it is time to reflect upon the little things that filled our week.
1. George and I were inspired by the Glawson Triplets to take the babies to our community playground. We stuffed two babies in each baby swing and they soared. Of course, before we stuffed them in, I sanitized each swing with Clorox wipes. Oh yes, I am that mom. We are enjoying freedom from lock down, but I’m not completely ready to let my germ guard down. Rylin and Mason thoroughly enjoyed their ride, giggling and grinning the whole time. Harper and Sydney didn’t protest, but seemed rather lackadaisical about the whole ordeal.
2. After I took Mason to Cranial Technologies for his weekly band adjustment, he and I took a detour to one of my former schools. I introduced Mason to the principal, Samantha, and secretary, Mina, at Bonnie Brae. Both of these ladies helped me trudge along as I worked full time the first 20 weeks of a quadruplet pregnancy so I thought it was time they meet at least one of the quadlets. I promised to bring the others someday. And…Springdale and Riverside friends, I promise we will swing by to see you as well.
3. My Uncle Mark sent this picture to me a few days ago. It is me and my Grandpa I think at Easter, which would make me about 13 or 14 months old. It’s a sweet picture that reminds me of how special he was to me and all of the little things we did together. I will always remember catching fireflies in his yard, swinging from vines, looking at stars with his telescope, performing on his hearth, and going to the beach. In his 87 years, he always stopped to look at bluebonnets and never let the little things go unnoticed. Thank you, Grandpa for teaching all of us to appreciate the little things!
