Year 2, Day 146: A Little of Everything

Hm,....pack, play, rest, pack, pack, pack....rest.

Yesterday, some of us got our teeth cleaned at the dentist, and they took a scan of Justin's head.  You can go through the image from any angle and we got to see Justin's wisdom teeth!  Unfortunately, the dentist did mention braces for him.  They were pretty busy yesterday so we didn't discuss it further, but I'll have lots of questions to ask next time we are there.  But the image is way cool!
A little Chick Fil A snack at Grandma's.  Why?  Because we are going back and forth and seem to be stopping in at Grandma's daily.  Although, Abishai asked for doggie when we pulled into the neighborhood.  He's going to be really confused when he finds out our new home is in the same neighborhood!  Benaiah got the watermelon mint free drink there at Chick Fil A and it tasted it incredible!  Yum!

Today's goal was to finish up some of the open boxes and get them taped up ready to go.  Well, Abishai decided to use the unstacked boxes as his par core (sp?)/American Ninja Warrior course!

Can I get up there to slide down?

Hide, hide, hide!

Not much left to pack.  And I don't think I'll finish up and transfer the kitchen until the new fridge has been in place for a day or two.  Moving 20 minutes away instead of 40 hrs away is a ton easier.  We don't have to be out of the condo until June 15th, so we'll have a two week overlap.  Abishai seemed upset when we left tonight and he had no bench or chair to sit on to put on his shoes.  I can't wait to get in the house and start putting things away, carefully choosing if it works in the house or not, and getting rid of the junk, too, one box at a time.

Are you comfortable Keturah? 

Today's flexi clip was chosen because it represents the verse in Proverbs that says, "children are like arrows in the hands of a warrior."  Children can go farther than parents in life, and I think our kids already have.  But, Jared and I went to a visitation this evening (and will go to the funeral tomorrow), of a mom that played a huge part in many, many, many people's lives (we waited 30 minutes to speak to the family!), and the arrow reminds me of how far her children have already gone in life.

And this mom passed away from cancer, so I wore my "fight cancer" shirt.  

Of the 8 teeth (3 on top and 5 on bottom) the dentist said Keturah needed to loose, one came out today, but in two pieces! It isn't the first time either.  She doesn't drink a lot of milk, and she eats some cheese every other day, and not much yogurt.  I wonder if she has an issue with not enough calcium.  Or the baby teeth have been in there too long and are disintegrating.  I don't know.  At least none of us had cavities this time.
