*Bright explosions in the sky
*Calamine and band aids for when we forget about the bug repellent (and the polka dot girl I put to bed each night whose sensitive skin seems to attract the little suckers)
*Days spent at the beach
*Aloe, although it can't take away a lobster red sunburn, it does soothe
*Photographs and memories
*The public library. My family has been enjoying plenty of summer library programs.
*Ok, I'm even thankful for cockroaches. The kids sure had fun playing with the huge ones the "Bug Guy" Brought in for the last program we attended. They even ate a few bugs. (I am NOT joking!) I, on the other hand, found it conveniently necessary to excuse myself to the restroom right around the time the roaches and tarantulas were being brought out.
*I'm thankful for a new job...which will be starting soon (more on that later).
*Green slime, explosions, goggles and lab coats...yes, VBS is on the way.
*And I'm especially thankful that my family is a refuge for me. (more thoughts on that later too)
What are you thankful for today?
