Thankful Thursday

Today I'm extra thankful that my kids have such a great dad. Kirb & Jacob went on a pre-teen father & son camping trip last weekend and had a great time! They got wet due to quite a bit of rain, hiked in a few state parks, talked lots about growing up, did some exploring, cooked over a camp fire and generally had a great time together. I can't believe my baby is getting big so fast!

Kirb is such a stellar dad and partner in this crazy parenting journey that we're on. I am thankful for him each and every day and can't imagine anyone that I'd rather share the craziness of our life with. He loves our kids so much and does so much to make their lives great and my life wonderful too.

Here are a few picture from the boys weekend:

I am also thankful for those who have gone before us in parenting pre-teens and done stuff to help make it easier for us. Kirb and Jacob went through this book {So you're about to be a Teenager} on their weekend and they also used this curiculum {Passport 2 Purity} which we will continue a little more as he gets even older. They both helped to make what could be pretty anxiety-producing experience {or even just thought} for a parent much easier to go through with and talk about and bring up and explain and all that good stuff . . . 1 down {at least partially}, 4 to go! We'll get our money's worth out of that investment, that's for sure!

  1. our boys sure are growing up fast! maybe someday {soon!} our hubbies can take our eldest boys camping together. and when they're a bit older, they should do a boundary waters canoe trip!


Thanks for the comments . . . they make my day!
