For Thankful Thursday

I know it is Wednesday but while I am thinking about it, I am going to post what I am thankful for this week.  I am so thankful Lorelei got to spend the night last night.  It has been a while since she had got to spend the night so was wonderful to have her here.

She was on a roll last night...she had one poem and for the life of me I cannot remember half the lines but last night I could say it right along with her.  I asked if she had had to memorize it...no, no teacher made her.  She said she went back to it and read...5 times...and it was stuck in her head. 

Anyway, I take it as sign she is going to like poetry...and she was trying to come up with some poetry of her on as we went to sleep.

Linking to Thankful Thursday.

Oh she is growing! She has always had the biggest and brightest smile. My mom loved poetry and could often make up poems on the spur of the moment!

I love to see and hear about Lorelei. She has the brightest smile. Glad she spent the night with you. Reminds me of when my granddaughters were that age and would come to see us. I loved it. Madison would say, grandpa, I'm sleeping with grandma tonight!

Glad you got to have he visit. Kids just make everything right. One thing I loved was watching my daughter and grands interests change as they got older. One passion seemed to stick with each one. Maybe hers will become poetry.

Today, I am thankful for my close relationship with my oldest grandson. (we raised him).
xx, Carol

She's such a cutie. I don't have a good memory..but if you can remember a poem that will help her with her studies. She has the cutest smile.

Hi Rose, so glad you got to have Lorelei for an overnight stay. She is so sweet and I love those cute dimples when she smiles. I wish I had her memory!
