That's pretty much our day. I'm ordering some vitamins and special foods tonight, catching up on some other miscellaneous business items, and trying to get a handle on this next week, which includes a trip to the Indianapolis Speedway racetrack! It won't be our last time there this year either. We are going to one of the areas where they build engines I think. And then, AND THEN, Thursday, is the Michael W. Smith concert, complete with songs from the 80's and 90's. It will be a nice break in the middle of the chaos and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg this time! Woot! Woot! I'm going with a friend who has done lots of concert things with me before, so it should be home. It's over in Columbus, Ohio, which is about 2 hrs away. Oh yeah, and homeschool co op, and regular school stuff, etc. I will hopefully spend my mornings packing a few boxes while helping kids with their independent work, and then get back to regular afternoon together work like history and read alouds. Can't wait to get back into it either!
Oh, and one last thing: Abishai has a social security number! Finally! And just in time because we need to try to qualify for state health insurance and were denied this month due to income. But maybe with officially having the fourth kid in the mix, we'll re-qualify. Please pray for it, because we cannot afford to pay for any health insurance plan. Either that, or pray for congress to decide that health insurance is optional. I pay cash for most of my doctor appointments because they aren't covered by most insurance companies anyway. Having insurance does help pay for medications though. Anyway, having the SSN for Abishai is a wonderful thing! It's the last step in a long process of making sure he's a legal citizen. It took a total of 9 months to get it done. What a pain in the rear! And he keeps his Canadian citizenship, too, by the way. I tell ya, Abishai is very unique. As are all of us, but there's just something special about him, I don't know.
Meanwhile, these guys are special, too.
|It has a bed and fridge and all kinds of stuff!|
|Pikachu with his morning newspaper!|
|Abishai found Keturah's headset and (non working) mini radio with a racecar on it. He thought he was too cool!|
|Threw one way.|
|And then back threw the other way.|
|Ah, I should have had Justin right down the name of this! He made some kind of electric generator or something. It was a random idea he had.|
|He's also very good at taking his own pictures of his Lego creations.|
|I did four of the eggs and Keturah poured two of them. She did great and spilled a whole lot less than I did!|
|Yup, we do look alike, folks, just a little bit.|
|Cuteness overload with these two munchkins!|
|Yes, it's a huge kids' choir! So much fun to watch them!|
