Park Day

Yesterday was park day for us. We met up with 3 homeschooling families at a local park and let the kids all play together while the moms had a chance to chat. It was nice. The weather was gorgeous (mid-70's) with a gentle breeze. It has been quite some time since we've seen 2 of the families so the kids were VERY excited about getting together. We didn't expect it to be this long between get togethers but sometimes life happens and you just have to roll with it. :-) Anyway, school is gearing up for everyone and we are making plans to set a park day for the year (last year was Tuesdays...think it will be Mondays this year). We are also all looking into various field trips and we often are able to all go together, along with other homeschoolers.

I finished figuring out where we were in our current curriculum and where we wanted to go for this year and what we needed to do so. We don't have much we have to buy (Yea!). I filled out our enrollment forms for The Farm School and that helped me with some of our goals for the upcoming year. I called the ped and left a message for copies of the kids' immunization records. I just have one more thing left to do and we can submit all of our enrollment stuff. I have to write a learning experience summary for both kids and submit that with everything else. Not bad.

This morning I am preparing to go to the oral surgeon to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. I am not thrilled about it but it is something that should have been done a few years ago and got pushed back...life. So, now at 41, I am getting my wisdom teeth out. The 2 uppers have to be completely cut out (ouch!) and the 2 lowers just pulled out. I am not looking forward to afterwards. My surgery is scheduled for 11:30am central time today. Any prayers, good thoughts, healing energies....happily accepted. At the moment, I'm having a hard time with not being able to have a drink this morning. It is very difficult waking up and not being able to drink something. In preparation for my surgery I made some homemade ice packs. You mix 3 parts water and 1 part alcohol in a ziplock baggie, then double bag it and pop it in the freezer. This makes the ice packs that are gel-like and form to whereever you put them. I made 2 so I have one for each cheek! After this they will be great to have around for boo-boos and any other injuries.

Sounds like a fun get together! Sorry to hear about the wisdom teeth. I had all mine out at once, too. Not fun - prepared to feel crummy for a few days afterwards (although I always have horrible swelling problems which make everything worse). Hang in there! Let us know how surgery goes.
