Ours days have been filled to the brim, or so it seems. Believe it or not-- blogging has taken a backseat for the time being. However, I will try and catch you up the last few days.
Paul got his reading glasses today and boy does he look handsome. Since he is only supposed to wear them when he reads, he was excited to go to the library where he wore them all he wanted-- which was until I finally told him as we were leaving that he didn't need them anymore.
John spent two hours at the dentist today. After two previous visits he finally got his temporary crown. In a few weeks he will be good to go!
Alex had a renal scan where we found out he has a horseshoe kidney. Next week he will be sedated while having a somatosensory test done. After that a few more tests are scheduled. After these battery of tests are done we should know if Alex will be a good candidate for any of the surgeries that help with bladder and bowel incontinence.
One of our children managed to get themselves tangled in their seatbelt-- literally, and we had to cut it. They are still working to pay it off.
We have been swimming and swimming and swimming. Anastasia can swim now but lacks the confidence of going out into the deep end. Paul is enjoying his freedom in the pool. He is no longer afraid to try anything and everything he sees his siblings doing. He can pick up rings at the bottom of the pool, he can swim backward, and he can jump through a ring floaty.
Tomorrow I take Anastasia and Paul for their physicals. I "forgot" to tell them about the shot they most likely will get. Why worry them ahead of time?
We are winding down our summer with only 17 days before school starts. On one had I think we are all beginning to go stir crazy but on the other hand I think we are just getting started now that majority of the adjustment issues have been worked through.
