Welcome Fall and School Photos

1408. kids who no longer need bribery to sit nicely for a photo
1409. a sister whose talent is big and whose humility is bigger
1410. for my in-laws' 50th anniversary--a wonderful example!
1411. paper mache, even if it sags before it's time
1412. for Instagram--which Meg begged me to join and I finally allowed her to join me to that world (Heather Taffs Vanderkruk or @thisjourneyhomeward)
1414. for a mom who's always purchasing little things like Picard's chipnuts, just because
1415. for the cheezy, annoying, but wonderful Geography Songs CD
1416. for all my nieces and nephews who I've been seeing a lot lately--I love you!
1417. for a single changed leaf on my otherwise green maple
1418. that I can have diligent workers around our school table (when they decide to be :)
1419. for Yvonne and Virginia and the work they do to teach people to listen for God's voice, and the excitement each year for the retreat
1420. for Camille and her strength and example
1421. for the repeated thoughts of "Interrupted" and "7", by Jen Hatmaker and how I've been forever changed (I hope!)
1422. for friends who read along with me and we all get excited and convicted and overwhelmed (in a good way)
 1423. for health
