|Happy Lucas LOVES avocados!!|
Since there was absolutely no sunshine in the potato state today, I had to find something that brought a couple of rays our way. I found several things today that brought a smile to my face.
First: Lauren wanted to help me cook dinner. "Sure, go get your apron on and wash up." Said Mom.
Lauren helped put the ingredients I had chopped onto the plate, made sure I was doing it all correctly, and even helped set the table. What a great helper!
Second: Lucas tried avocados for the first time tonight and lo and behold...he LOVED the green mushy fruit! He couldn't get enough of the stuff. Too bad he couldn't have loved a fruit that was a bit cheaper. :)
And thirdly: All of the kids' homework was done without complaining! WOW!! That rarely if ever happens in this household.
So even though the sun was shy today, I found things to smile brightly about. Maybe tomorrow the sun will grace us with it's presence.
