Greatitudes 233-250

Could I really not have been grateful since May? And it's not even Multitude Monday anymore here! Hmm. Today started brilliantly and felt like the first day of the rest of our lives, since PC started his new job this morning. He is one clever and very wonderful husband. And Bean Craftin' friends gave me a sophisticated tea contraption for my birthday with muchly delicious strawberry leaves.

Mattman has undergone his next rite of passage and the Tooth Fairy visited us for the first time! And both suns are now Junior Elks at Sports Camp with tee-shirts to wit, and I have all week free while they play basketball until 3pm. (Enabling me to discover that fun is most gorgeously available for butterfly fans!) All between the cooking of PC's potatoes that have been awaiting our return- some of which were even lauded by the fabulous French Perrin family who came for dinner last Friday night.

Lovely holidays. Much eating of crepes, drinking of cidre doux, swimming, reading, French brushing up on, and even experiencing the unbelievable atmosphere of Paris when the Tour de France comes to town. We have tee-shirts for that too! And the boys really did love seeing the Van Goghs in Orsay- so thanks to Dr Who! And yes, Elizabethd, we did get to the Sunday morning market- straight after culte!

But it's all thanks in faith to the Grower of teeth and potatoes and Provider of friends and daily bread and Lover of my soul. Smile, magsmcc, you know in whose hands you are held, even in lahrymose moments!

Oh, that's a precious smile! What will the tooth fairy bring?
I'm so glad that PC is excited about his job and that YOU had a happy birthday complete with a tea contraption!
Your holiday sounds like it was wonderful and now you can read and ponder while the boys bounce the ball.

Welcome back! One of my grandsons also lost a tooth, while we were on vacation with his family. And you are still reading Kierkegaard, while I have yet to find the first book to read. Another friend has been reading him too and posting quotes frequently.
Brother L is good, I know. I did read that book long ago. Have been trying pitifully to put it into practice. (sigh)

I hope the tooth fairy paid handsomely for that first tooth ;)

Is it your birthday today?? It's mine also!

Thanks for coming by LHH--I'm very happy to make your acquaintance! I've got a boy here missing the same tooth as yours. This time the tooth fairy remembered to come--thank goodness!
