Tom watched the game for about 10 minutes
We did watch half time though
I was impressed with how clean it was and classic
I loved the way Bruno Mars dressed and performed!
What was that Red Hot Chili Peppers part about?
(I did not like that part)
If you missed it,
Bruno Mars performed this song and a few others
And he had great back up dancers and musicians dressed like him
A few of you have asked, so I'll try to update you!
Clinic day is just that, a day at the clinic (a whole day)
We arrived at 10:30 and left at 4pm
We saw Little Red's whole team of Cleft people
Plastic Surgeon, Dentist, Orthodontist, Dental Surgeon
Nutritionist, Speech, Ear Nose Throat Doctor
Think of 7 appointments all in one day,
moving to a different room each time and waiting inbetween
It was a long day for a 2 year old,
(heck it was long for a 44 year old)
But he was great, everyone loved him
and we got all our appointments done in one day!!
We came prepared, books, crayons, and lots of raisins...
Little Red will not need surgery til his permanent teeth come in
anywhere between age 6 and 9
Most of his surgeries will be oral
with a couple plastic surgery ones,
like they will bring his nostrils in more as he grows
and he will probably want to do more to his top lip.
They cannot give an exact number of surgeries,
but I count at least 8 more.
Speech starts TODAY actually.
We went with the school district, rather than the clinic
The school district will come to our home
I thought this would be less disruptive than leaving twice a week
to go to the clinic.
I'm nervous as heck to have someone come to our crazy home though.
She dresses herself...do you see it?
Yep. They are on backwards.
I took 10 kids sledding to a hill by out house
(not in our backyard)
I love this picture
It was FREEZING that day, but it was above zero (barely)
(I left the 2 littles home with daddy)
Can I just say these kids are awesome?
These are some of our homeschool friends
If you homeschool and you are getting down about how hard it is
or having doubts because people think you are weird,
Have some fellow homeschoolers over!!
(playing Quelf here)
I tell you what, we had 12 kids here and they were so awesome,
it felt like 6
They are all polite, I can't even count how many times they thanked me
They looked out for the littles, they laughed and all got along so great!
We had a slumber party
We used to not slumber party,
when they were little
but we do now
and I love it.
I think it works better now that they are older
It reminds me of my childhood.
Little Red ran off in this picture,
but, this picture just makes me happy inside.
It makes me so happy we homeschool
that our kids are really really good kids
And they hang around really really good kids.
There's a difference.
That's a fact.
My intention is not to cut on public or parochial school kids or their parents
really, it is to encourage other homeschoolers
So don't get huffy
It's not a competition
How about some cuteness?
Don't let them fool you, one minute they are kissy lovey dovey
and the next they are chasing each other screaming because
she touched something he played with this week.
I sewed this curtain this week
Our old mini blind was just disgusting
It was rusted at the top and would not even come off
to be cleaned
so I decided a curtain would be better.
The kids take off the ring if they shower at night
Don't get all, "Wow, she can sew!"
Because it's just a sheet and yes, I can sew straight lines.
I like to use sheets, because I don't have time to go to another store,
like a fabric store and pick out material that costs way more than a sheet.
My kitchen helper this week and her dessert of choice!
We make it every year, but usually make a boy snowman!
She made a girl one!
We have our Valentine tree up!!
One kid said,(might have been the oldest one)
"That tree is stupid"
But then, another said, "It's tradition!"
It just would not be the same if we didn't have our
clumsy-takes up a lot of space-kids steal the candy all the time-Valentine tree up!
If you want to do a tree like that
I just cut out hearts and put conversation things on one side
and Bible love verses and quotes on the other side!
Happy Wednesday everyone!!!
