This week, I am thankful for swimming pools.
Even though I did happen to get a tad sunburned today, the swimming pools that are available to us on post have been a huge blessing. We have the option to go whenever we want, it’s been a way to meet people (including other homeschool families!), and it’s a way to beat the heat and have fun at the same time.
(Unfortunately, I have yet to remember to bring my camera along for pictures.)
Because of the times at the pool, we have made some new friends, found out about homeschool co-ops and groups in the area, driven in and out of the military checkpoints enough that it’s not scary anymore, and gotten out of the house almost every day.
And a few other things I’m grateful for this week:
- an actual office space in this house–it’s wonderful
- new friends
- the active on-post youth ministry that we found out about and visited–pretty cool
- common ground–and interests
- laid-back mornings with summer break
- chances to read again
- new bookshelves
I hope you can find things, large and small, to be thankful for today. And if you’ve written a gratitude post, please feel free to link it up below. It’s fun and encouraging to hear what others are thankful for!
