The appointment this morning went well, but 3 out of 4 us have to go back to the dentist because of cavities. Can you guess who doesn't need to go back? Me! That's right, the kids AND Jared have cavities. I guess with all the craziness this year has brought, we haven't been very vigilant about teaching the kids better oral hygiene. Whoops. Oh well, it happens, right? Ok, maybe not to everyone, but you know, you do what you have to survive, and teeth brushing is just a little lower than some other things like packing up to move 1,600 miles, you know? But it's a good reminder to get back at it now that we are "settled" at the moment. When we were in the car, Keturah was talking about how the "vegetables" they put on her teeth felt sticky. Wait, vegetables? You mean "vitamins?" Yes, the dentist brushed fluoride on the kids' teeth today instead of doing the foam trays we have had in the past. It made their teeth sticky for awhile, but they could eat right after that if they wanted to. We hadn't had lunch, so it was a Chick Fil A kind of day, yeah! That restaurant never gets old for us. And I got to have a diet Dr. Pepper, yum! I like fountain over bottled pop any day.
The kids were able to do some school this morning at Grandma's and then at the dentist, and finished it when they got home. Yeah for homeschooling on the road! Actually, we arrived at Leah's just as the bus was going through the neighborhood and I asked the kids if they were glad they didn't have to stand at the bus stop 5 days a week in the cold or rain or snow or heat. Yes, they were glad. Just another perk of homeschooling not having to rush out the door every single day to catch a bus or go to work. I don't have to go to work because my work follows me literally everywhere, right? But it can be done in my jammies or from the comforts of my bed when I'm really ill. Ah the freedoms and blessings we currently have and have had since the beginning of our lives. We are definitely part of that 10% of the wealthiest people in the world category, aren't we? Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom to bear arms....yes, we still have those freedoms for now. Things to be very thankful for sure.
Like I said, I have a wicked headache, so I took a nap and we just chilled tonight.
|Playing with micro machines from my childhood. I noticed they are getting a bit worn, but I'm glad my kids have gotten to enjoy them instead of them just sitting in a box unused.|
|Driving cars through tunnels always goes better when your foot is in the playset that folds up into a van.|
|Oo, nice close up shot! Random vehicle placement though.|
|Of course Abishai had to line up the tiny cars like he does his matchbox size cars.|
|Look Daddy! Vrrooms!|
|Daddy made Abishai is very own car with "VRROOM" on the license plate.|
|And of course, it has a Canadian flag logo for the Canadian. Nice!|
|One of Leah's beautiful maple trees!|
|Nothing sales fall like long sleeve shirts and red leaved maple trees! Makes for lots of yard clean up, but the kids LOVE making a mess of the piles. But where's the snow? Isn't it supposed to be cold and snowy now? #Canadianmemories|
