Oliver likes watching Veggie Tales on Julia's tablet. This is something that he started doing in the last few months. Another milestone. As I sat with the kids during one of our recent devotionals, one of them remarked how amazing it is to see Oliver do something new. We probably get more excited than Oliver does. In addition to using the tablet, he is learning to feed himself, turn on light switches, and try to open doors. He uses the sign for "more" all the time now.
Nolan is such a charmer. He can be the sweetest little guy one second and a stinker the next.
Isn't he cute?
I bought a pack of socks the other day only to find out that one was missing.
Then we made a cobbler only to realize that we should have used two pans instead of one because we doubled it. It took three times as long to bake it and didn't turn out like it should have.
Then Galina showed me that or tomatoes that were beginning to turn red looked like this on the bottom. Someone suggested that it is blossom end rot, which sounds about right. Tomorrow I am crushing a calcium pill and dissolving it in some water. Maybe this will improve the rest of our crop. One could hope.
Just when it feels like I am 0 for 3, I went to the dentist today. THIS IS HUGE! I haven't been since my last cleaning by our old dentist office which was a year ago. I had such a traumatic experience back then when I had three crowns and then they told me that the three crowns had to be redone 6 months later. Plus they said I had a new handful of cavities. I bawled and bawled in that office and left. We never went back. I took the kids to a new office which I really like but I was too afraid to go myself. I kept putting it off until yesterday when Caleb had some fillings done and he said how it was the most pleasant dental experience he had ever had. They actually did all of his work in one visit which left his visit for today open. I was talked into getting a cleaning today. They were so nice and gentle and seemed to really care. The best part came when they told me that I only have three little cavities! I don't need three crowns redone like I thought! I literally cried tears of joy in the dentist chair as Caleb rubbed my feet with reassurance.
My dental phobia is gone... well at least I took the first step to facing it!
This is such an answered prayer!
