The kids are on Spring Break. I'm not sure when Spring Break stopped being at Easter, but it is what it is. Actually the home schoolers have next week off, but we are taking this week off instead so all the kids could enjoy their time off together. Rachel isn't though because she has school work due this week and that is just as well since she is having 2 of her wisdom teeth pulled next week anyway.
The kids are into playing card games right now-- specifically War and Battle Ship.
John is not home this evening and I still have a cough so I made a big pot of Top Ramen for dinner. Galina was my helper. She opened up all the packets for me. For the 16 of us, fourteen packs of noodles was just about right. And despite how crazy easy dinner was, the kids were still thankful.
Afterwards we had Ranger Cookie ice-cream sandwiches. That made the kids smile!
Rachel and her threek.
Annalyn is so photogenic!
Julia bought a Sponge Bob drawing game with her babysitting money. The kids really enjoy playing it. Galina has been playing solitaire-- another card game. William is getting over being sick.
Dennis is still battling eczema. We went to a new doctor this past Friday. He ordered a blood test that will test for egg, milk, peanut, shellfish, soybean, strawberry, and wheat allergies. He also gave us a new prescription of cream. If the blood test comes back normal we will see a dermatologist next. For the doctors it doesn't seem like a big deal, but I just can't stand to see him suffer.
The toilet paper on his knee is covering up his bloody wart. It is about to come off so it is bleeding around the edge. When he asked me what is going to happen to his wart, I told him it would fall off in a few days. That crazy boy cried because he doesn't want to lose his wart.
The other day I picked up Super Master Mind from the thrift store. Adam and I have been having so much fun playing it. To continue our special one on one time today he went with me to run some errands. After picking up prescriptions we got some ice-cream. My boy is not so little anymore-- we talked about him taking the SATs in June and college.
Gotta go-- Adam wants to play another game of Master Mind. :)
