Currently {vol.11}

Currently {Vol. 11}

 I have recently started reading A Mama Collective and just love her blog. She has started a series called: Currently. This series is just a regular, every day post about what is going on in her world that day. So, I am joining in the fun with her Currently series!

Thinking about: My Grandparents. They were recently named my hometown's Grand Marshall's for the town festival & parade. This is big recognition for all of the hard work they have done over the years for the community.   My parents are two of the most amazing, hard working, strong, faithful, loving people that I know.  They have lost 4 of their 7 children over the last 60 years and they continue to live each day and not wallow in their sorrows. My grandma continues to be creative with her quilting, needlepoint, sign making, genealogy writing and the list goes on...and my grandpa works outside on the farm everyday & fixes equipment and whatever else needs to be done. My grandparents are the 'glue' of our family. They have kept us strong in all the hard times & laughed with us in the good times. I can't thank them enough for everything that they have taught me over the years - work hard, faith in God, laugh often and love much. Our family is such a precious gift and I have realized over the years that I am SO lucky to have amazing grandparents, parents, aunts & uncles and cousins that all enjoy every moment we have together. 

Thinking about my new inspiration blog post this morning. I have all these ideas in my head of how I want to update my son's room to be a "BIG KID" room as he would call it...but need to find the time & money.

Reading: A pile of printed blog articles that I have printed over the past month that I didn't want to forget about. I have them at my  desk at work and plan to read them on my lunch breaks this week.

Watching: The evening news or morning cartoons. That is about the only TV I watch nowadays.

Listening to: The wind blow. It is windy tonight. We have been having such warm weather, tonight's windy weather felt chilly. Coming from a Wisconsin girl! Ha

Thankful for: Another wonderful weekend!

 Thursday afternoon, I had the privilege of attending Collin's kindergarten field trip to the Eau Galle Rec park & dam. It was nice to have some one on one time & see how he interacts with his teacher & classmates. That evening, we ran errands & had a kids/mom date at Culver's.

 Friday evening, we finished up some yard work & decided to go for a drive to Hudson, WI for burgers & fries at Barkers. YUM! After dinner, we took a little stroll by the river. 
We had a wonderful day on Sunday for Collin's 6th Birthday party! Everyone had a blast shooting Nerf guns all over the yard! 

Beautiful blossoms from my Lilac bush always brighten up my kitchen!
