Grateful for… Three Things Thursday

The purpose of Three Things Thursday is to celebrate the things that made us smile during the past week. I’m meshing that with my Grateful for … post this week as I’m always grateful for those moments that make me smile. (and I’m short on blogging time)

What made you smile this week? What are you grateful for?

Colline was grateful for the team she works with.

From the Narrow Gap~ WP Challange

Last spring we were thrilled to share the rooms above their home. Each afternoon (when it wasn’t pouring rain) we happily watched to see who was the bravest; who would come out the narrow gap under our cabin to play in the tender grass.

They were a busy little crew. It was a daily debate; some said there were 9 siblings other said 7 siblings, two of which were extra feisty and running everywhere. We never saw their parents at this time. We only saw them occasionally later in the afternoon. We suspected that the crew were sneeking out when Mom and Dad went for dinner. đŸ™‚

It’s hard to say but this crew peeking out of the narrow gap may have been the highlight of our trip to Allegany State Park, New York.
