Bren and Erin decided to rake the leaves into a pile so that they could jump into it, but after they raked for a bit they decided that it was too itchy.
I have to say that this year, like every other, I am thankful for my family, friends, and my health, but I have so much more to be thankful for, too. I am especially thankful to have had the privilege of going to the Hogar this past summer, and for the lessons that I have learned, and will continue to learn, from the children and Dr. Tony. I'm thankful to be getting SO close to graduating from pre-med and moving on to the next chapter in my life. I'm thankful to have reconnected with several older friends, and especially Judy (who is really family to us). I'm thankful that I have children who want to help those in need around them, and recognize the need to do that (like Erin and Sean asking to buy a meal for the homeless woman at Walmart earlier this evening, which we did).
I hope you all have had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It's time for me to get the applesauce muffins out of the oven with Erin, and spend some more time with Grandma B at the diningroom table!
