Thankful Thursday

So this is my first ever Thankful Thursday post and some of you are going to think I am awful when you read what I am thankful for this week!

I am SOOOOO thankful that school starts back on Monday! I am ready to go back to a regular schedule, regular meals and regular bed times. I am sick and tired of my kids fighting because they are bored to death. I am tired of the blood. Seriously. Blaine has picked so many fights with Brayden in the past few weeks and it seems like most of them have ended up with HIM bleeding when Brayden retaliates. Will he ever learn to pick on someone his own size instead of someone who is more than double his weight? I guess you say that he is a slow learner.

But to end on a positive note, I am also thankful for the time we have gotten to spend together. Monday I took Blaine to do his school shopping and then he got to go to work with me. He grabbed my hand in the parking lot and told me we had been needing some special time with nobody else around and he was right! He got an icee and a pretzel from Target for being so good and cooperative while we shopped. Then he got to pick where we ate lunch and he picked Steak-Out.

Brayden got to go get school supplies on Tuesday and then on to work. He didn't want an icee. He wanted a cookies and cream milkshake from Chick-Fil-A so we grabbed lunch there and he got a milkshake for being so good. Then he helped me send out statements by licking envelopes. He didn't last long because he kept getting paper cuts on his tongue. In case you are wondering why I don't have one of those spongy things to wet the envelopes, Bryson broke it and we had to go to plan B. Brayden.

I hope you all are ready for school to start back, too, cause it's coming!

I'm also secretly looking forward to school starting. Kaleb, our youngest, starts kindergarten this year, which means Mikesha and I will have the days to ourselves, at least until we get another foster placement. I'm looking forward to:
- lunches with my wife
- a quiet house during the day

Nina is really looking forward to school starting. Her big thing this summer has been "Mom. I'm so lonely". I'll be glad that she has lots of kids around her again. :)
