I'm keeping up with my thankful album. Truthfully, it's made me reevaluate things that may otherwise be pains. Yesterday, for example, I forgot to give the boys their meds before school. I could have left my school during my prep, run them to the school, and then returned to work, but what stress! So I turned around and went home, thereby witnessing the most beautiful sunrise I would have otherwise missed.

Here's a page I did about his life's passion right now, Legos.
I used Studio Calico's October kit for this and Sketchy Thursday's sketch.
