Summer Favorites

“I would maintain,” said the English writer, G.K. Chesterton, “that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”  Like most parents we’ve tried to instill in our boys a spirit of gratitude.camping1.jpg  Since this is vacation week, and pivoting off yesterday's discussion, I thought I’d ask them to share their favorite things about summer.  As you can see, they tend to think alike!

Troy (8 7/8 yrs)

Somebody once said that if a person isn't grateful for what he already has, he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get.

How about you and your children? What are your favorite things of summer?
