Three Things Thursday is an idea that originated over at Nerd In The Brain that highlights three things that help make your week a bit brighter. I don’t always manage to get around to these posts, but I do love the concept. This week I am thankful for:
1. Sleeping children
These two certainly keep me running while they are awake. I love it when they are sleeping… Like seriously love it. The great thing that has been happening these last few weeks is the kids have been gravitating towards the same nap schedule which is kind of like winning the parenting lottery. I can actually accomplish a few things a day during that golden hour of mutual nap time.
2. Our Back Yard
Liam loves to be outdoors, and I am so grateful that we have a nice big fenced in space for him to safely play in with his puppy brothers, including the amazing deck my dad helped us build.
3. Air Conditioning
Oh boy has it been humid out this week! We invested in a new air conditioner at the beginning of the summer that is seriously kicking some major butt in this weather. It feels so good to come in from that awesome back yard of ours to a cool(ish) house. Our house was built in the 1800’s so it is not the most energy efficient house in is practically impossible to truly cool down. We are really making this AC work!
