Thankful Thursday

December 1!!  I am so thankful that this is the last full month with lots of business before our little Striker is here!  Yes, I am hesitant to right this because I do not want to wish this pregnancy away BUT we are all very excited to meet him!  Turner can't wait to see if he has hair, or if he does have hair then how much does he have?!?!  He is such a mover, I wonder if when he gets here if he will be this active?  We have learned so much about his little personality!  We can't wait to actually meet him!

I am thankful for homeschooling because Sam has actually been able to see and spend time with the kids this week.  Had they been in public school, they would've been in bed when he arrived home every night this week.  I will admit, getting back into the swing of homeschooling after a week of this week was difficult.  And I've thought about throwing in the towel a few times this week alone, but watching Sam get to spend time with the kids well past 8pm has been so worth it!  Plus, we are heading out today to have lunch with my Mum at her work then to Sam's robotics competition!

I am thankful for a new washer and dryer.  This is the first *new* nice thing we have bought!  Well, minus our van but this is our first NEW household thing we've bought.  We bought a large high efficiency set.  I can't wait for it to get here!  I have been coaxing my old set along now for a few months and with every load I rejoice that it survived!  I am so thankful for my husband who was bound determined to get me an awesome washer/dryer set!
