Then after lunch Wyatt was really bored... and maybe I was a little bored too... so we gathered up a bunch of blankets and tipped over the coffee table (which I am sure Wyatt will try to do all the time now) grabbed some chairs, and made our very first fort!! Wyatt was pretty much in awe of the fort... and I have to say... I was too! We did a really good job and it even stayed up when Colt (our dog) came charging through it!
Well, the rain has stopped, for a few minutes at least, Wyatt is all snugged up and asleep in his crib, the fort is still up in the living room (because I asked Wyatt if he wanted to show daddy and he said "yes") I am about to grab a cup of coffee, sit down, and enjoy the quietness and the sound of the rain!

Wyatt wanted to know why Papa had that blue thing around his belly....
Wyatt sat with Papa for quite awhile. He wondered about his cool blue belt, laughed when Papa laughed, and showed us all his silly smile. We don't know how much longer we will get to have Papa Bill with us, but we will cherish the precious moments we do have together!

I sometimes over look these blessings when I go through my days thinking about ALL the things I need to get done, but yesterday, I had 4 hours to just sit and think (and spit into a sucker tube) and I just felt thankful and blessed.
I have been struggling with feeling thankful and seeing all the blessings God has given me since I moved to Texas. I was more so feeling frustrated (or maybe even sinfully angry, for those of you who went to Bible Study with me) because I was so far away from my family and my friends. But yesterday I thought (for 4 hours) about how awesome it was that we had money to pay for this emergency Root Canal and about all the amazing people God has brought into my life, friends I can confide in, friends I can laugh with, friends I can ask my silly diapering questions to, and friends I can call up at the last minute to watch my child... and I realized how very Thankful I am for these friends no matter how new or old of friends they are. They are blessings!
