What always makes me happy....

Who doesn't love a fresh, sharpened set of colored pencils, just waiting to be used on a new sheet of paper? Since I was a kid, this has been one of my favorite things :) Just a blank canvas of possibility waiting to be played with! Or how about seeing the kids picking up something to read, completely unprompted? That definitely brings a smile to my face every time. Guaranteed. Other happy things are Iain's jokes (and sense of humor which completely matches mine), the cats purring, and putting on my favorite jammies.

What a nice post!

And I concur - I love seeing my kids read or doing some painting or colouring.

Me me MEEEEE! On both of those! I was so excited this morning because I got brand new crayola already sharpened colored pencils for my Sunday school class. TWO boxes! And Crayola - not even the super cheap kind!

I am seriously about to go do the tag...for real! :-) :-) :-)

I know what you mean! I used to love doing the school shopping when you had to get all the pencil crayons, new notebooks, etc! Fun pics!
