Small Graces

Hello, I hope you've all had a good week!  Nothing major happening around our house lately. We are continuing to make progress with painting and enjoying the summer weather.

Last Sunday we had a simple celebration for Father's Day. Jeremy is such a devoted dad! His patience and his ability to guide our kids amazes me. They all adore him, which causes me to adore him even more. 

To celebrate their grandpa the kids helped me make scotcheroos. They had never had them before are currently obsessed. 

The boys have become great explorers and are constantly bringing me creepy crawlies of all sorts. They caught a turtle, who we decided to keep...I'll have to post pictures of him soon. I didn't get this on film but Mini Man also caught a bird this past week. If you haven't already you can read about it here

Probably one of our biggest highlights so far this summer had been our playground tour. I've got plans to do some simple post on the playgrounds we are visiting - there are so many good ones in this area. 

Since we live in the Fox Valley lots of the parks we've been visiting are near the river or have creeks - this has been a great delight to the boys. 

When we are home, and not doing school, the kids are usually running around with the neighborhood children. We feel very blessed that our neighbors also have kids and that nobody seems to mind extra little bodies running through their backyards or sitting on their porches. The only downside is that my kids are consuming far too many treats. I've recently caught on that they've created a little route. The kids congregate on one porch and asks for a treat only to move to another one in an hour or so. 

A weekly reflection inspired in part by Bob Bennett's song "Small Graces".

These are the small graces, little moments when the miracles come...
Small graces leading me to the larger one...
they are a reminder to the heart there is more to this life than meets they eye...
He is in the small graces, the little moments when the miracles come...

small graces pointing me to the larger one...
little glimpses of the kingdom come
