I’m sitting in the waiting room of the orthodontist’s office in Spokane – how I love wi-fi. Ladybug is getting her braces off today! We headed out for a foggy, wet drive at 7:00 this morning and got here on time, even though we were behind a slow truck for quite a few miles. It is an exciting day for her and a relaxing day for me. Once Ladybug’s braces are off, we’ll have a few hours to go to lunch and do a little shopping before returning to get her new retainers. We’ll get home just in time for her basketball game. Today is all about Ladybug.
Isaiah is is holding down the fort at home, which I really appreciate. Bringing the little boys along today would have changed the tone of the entire day. While I doubt they will do much schoolwork, they will have fun at home. On a good day, Eby and Little Man will play outside for hours, the only problem right now is the mud. I’ve been doing extra loads of laundry nearly every day.
Eby got tired of the readers we were using for school, so this week I dug out our old Pathway Readers and let him try something new. He is really enjoying the new books, although he wondered why there are no pictures of people in them. I tried to explain that they were written by Amish people who don’t believe in drawing pictures of people. Yesterday he said, “I like the picture of the horse, but I want to see the humans!” He makes me laugh.
I had big plans for a one year update on Dimples’ locs, but yesterday, she fell at school and has a huge scrape on her face along with a black eye! The loc post will have to wait a week or so. I am still so thankful that we loc-ed her hair; it has made life much easier for all of us. Hygiene is a big enough challenge for Dimples without hours devoted to doing hair each weekend. Eliminating hair drama has been a gift to us.
I brought lots of organizational work with me today, and a book I am reading, so I had better get busy. I’ve made more progress on the next posts for Tell it Well. Yesterday I shared them with my son, Nick, and I’m getting his input prior to posting them. Thanks for being so patient.
