Five more weeks of summer.

So much for my weekly posting.   What can I say?  We've been busy.

We went to The Woodlands.  Again.  Fifth year in a row.  It's become our summer place I guess.

We dogsat for an entire month.   It was nice to have a dog in the house again.

Even if we had to make a few accommodations.  We still have visitation rights.    Buster used to be "owned" by some very strange people down the street.  They kept him tied to a tree until Hurricane Ike blew through releasing him and he took refuge with my friend.  Now he has two families and as you can see, he lives a good life.  Lucky dog.   He's no Ezra, but I miss him too.

Elizabeth's best friend moved last week.  I almost feel like I've lost another child because she spent many hours/days/weeks here since finding out they would be leaving.   Elizabeth is doing okay, but she spends lots of time wondering what Amelia is doing right that minute in Alpha-bama.   I miss her too.

Elizabeth had a tooth pulled and some cavities filled.......

And so did Adam.  And our dentist quit being a preferred provider yet I didn't find this out until AFTER the procedures.  Will work for dental payments.

The kids who brush four times a day need work and Jacob, the one who NEVER brushes his teeth, had no cavities.  Go figure.

The boys attended Lego camp which could easily have been named Lego Daycare because I can't tell that did anything other than play with buckets of mixed-up Legos which they do every single day at HOME for FREE but whatever.  What did I expect?  Thank you Gammy for paying for it after choking on your ice cream when you heard about our dental bills.

We've been to the lake twice and are going back next week.  I spent a week at the state preschool conference amassing the hours needed to continue working there another year.   I find it interesting that I need 24 hours of training to teach preschool and yet when I taught elementary school, nothing.  I even called the school Jacob will be attending to see if they do any training over the summer and they can, but it is not required.  What?  So just know, if you have a preschooler, I have a masters degree and 96 hours training so bring him over.  I am qualified.

Jacob added a new medication two days ago and so far, woo boy.  It isn't proving to be the miracle drug they promised.   Would be just my luck to have the one kid who got worse on it.

Now that I don't have the extra kid or the extra dog maybe I'll be able to post more.  We'll see.
