About as random as it gets

That's what this post is, random things that have been going on for the Blaine's. School is back in full swing for the kiddos and so far so good. Me and A#3 have had a great time with our lessons at home and I can see the things she has learned already. Let's just say that every time she sees the letter i she let's me know it. Every single time ;) And as per the norm for us there has to be an injury thrown in there somewhere. And yes it is usually from the hubby and yes that is his big fat thumb in that picture.
Me and A#3 had went to visit sweet Lily girl and had been there about an hour when he called and asked where we were. Why? Because one of our employees is taking him to the ER because he had a little run in with the table saw and the table saw won! WHAT?!!!! You see, usually when he cuts himself, which is a lot, he will just throw some duck tape on it (seriously!) and come home when he's finished working and never even mention it. Or there has been a time or two that he has driven himself to the doctor so when he said someone else was taking him, that was my first clue that it was a bad one. So I leave to head to the hospital and he calls back and says they are taking him to xray because if he has cut bone he needs to go right into surgery. WHAT?!!! I'm already praying as I'm driving but now I go into overdrive in the prayer department and start calling people to ask them to pray. Thankfully my mom was close enough that she ran over to stay with him until I could get there. When we arrived my mom came out and stayed with A#3 (thanks again Mom!!!) so I could go back. Praise God he DID NOT cut any bone so the doctor was finishing up the stitches when I arrived. Poor hubby was in a lot of pain and it showed. I don't mean to gross you out but let's just say hamburger with stitches!!! YUCK!!! Praise the Lord he is healing well but of course he is back at work full steam ahead.
Look at that face!!! She is doing so well and growing so strong.

In other randomness, fall soccer has begun and this year we have two players. A#3 is on top of this world that she gets to play this year. Hubby is assistant coach to both of them. A#3 had practice at 9am and she was up and dressed, cleats and all, at 7:20!!

She looks like she gonna be a great one doesn't she?
The next picture made me cry because she looks soooo grown up :(
And then there is this little guy. Foster-man started kindergarten and he LOVES IT!!! Doesn't he look to little to be going to school? By the way, the hairdo was inherited from his dad :)

And then I have been trying to get a little crafting in. This was for A#2's teacher. A bucket full of star bursts for his class. The funny thing is, HE ate them ALL!!!
And around the house things are in full back to school mode, including the apothecaries. Full of crayons, markers, scissors and glue.

Well that's the randomness for now. Hope you are all well and ready for Fall!!!
