Thankful Thursday: Toddy & ISR

It's thankful Thursday time! We all have so much to be thankful for and we love to take this opportunity just to write down each and everything that comes to mind. Please take this time to share with us what you're thankful for as well. If you have a blog expressing your thankfulness, please share the link! Without further ado, here's what we're thankful for:

Mandi's List:

I’m thankful for a wonderful husband. I know I’m not the only wife that thinks they have the best husband in the whole world, but I think I have the best husband in the world! I am so blessed to have a man by my side that is twice the spouse I will ever be.

I’m thankful for a little swimmer. Mckenna started ISR swim lessons on Monday, and is a super star! She is shockingly good at it…her instructor is even a bit shocked. She is on day 4 of lessons, but is doing skills that most kids are doing twice as far (if not farther) into lessons. And I’m not thankful for a swimmer because I’m hoping she goes to the Olympics...I’m just thankful for a swimmer because I want her to be ok if she ever falls into a body of water!

I’m thankful for Toddy. We have been making cold brew coffee for iced coffee…and MMM MMM MMM!! I could drink it all day long. If you’ve never tried it, you can get a Toddy maker for $30, and it’s worth every penny.

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for the Toddy coffee maker. I noticed that Mandi was drinking more iced coffee lately, but she was brewing hot coffee first and letting it cool before making her drink. I got our slow brew Toddy coffee maker down from the cupboard and told her to give it a try instead. It was a hit!! She loved it. So I guess I'm thankful for the smile it put on my wife's face more than anything.

I'm thankful for ISR lessons. Mckenna just started "survival" lessons this week, and it's so cool to see how quickly she's progressing. She was floating on her back by the second day and remains incredibly calm during the process. I'm excited to see where she is and what she can do in a few weeks!!

I'm thankful for time with Mandi. We've recently started having a nice young woman come over and hang out with Mckenna for a few hours on Thursday to let Mandi and I have some time to work together. It's amazing how little we're able to work together even though we both work out of the same house! It really helps us focus on a few action items and knock them out.
