Week in Review

This past week/end was a very busy week for us. Aaron got braces. It's something that has been about 20 years coming. Unfortunately, because he is an adult they can't do the same they would've done when he was a kid. His top braces got put on and his bottom will go on in another 6 weeks. It helps remind me of what a weaker race men are. He he he. They can't handle the pain that we can endure. Poor babe. Just kidding. You're doing fantastic! Way to go! He he he. It also is a gentle reminder of how expensive orthodontic work is. And how we have Aaron now plus 3 kids to go. Thus, we need to start saving 15 years ago. 

Soso has embarked on 12 weeks of vision therapy. He still has reduced vision in his left eye so we've started weekly therapy sessions which unfortunately are not covered by insurance either. Yay. And he also got reading glasses. How cute is that? My 4 year old has reading glasses because he reads! He's doing really well with them, he only wears them when he does his homework or reads, plays legos, etc. 

Then Friday night we took the boys with another family to see this show. Let me just tell you, it was AMAZING! Expensive? Absolutely. Worth every penny? Absolutely. If I could've brought my camera in I would've been able to show you the looks on these boys faces. Pure awe. Soso did not shut up for a single second the ENTIRE show. This was the dialogue for an hour and a half.

Sawyer: Mama, look at that! Wow! Do you think that's a plant eater?

Sawyer: No, I bet that is a meat eater! I can tell by their sound.

Sawyer: Check that out. I think that's a volcano.

Sawyer: Mama, do you see that baby? His mama is going to protect him.

Sawyer: WOW! Do you see his horns? That's so he doesn't get eaten by another dinosaur.

Sawyer: Mama, if that animal is a plant eater why did he have to become extinct? He wouldn't eat US!

Sawyer: That is my favorite! That's a pteranodon! Do you see how big he is! 

Sawyer: WHOA!

And every once in a while I would nod yes or no. Tell him to shush. Or tell him we'll have to do our research and find out later. 

If this show comes to your town, GO SEE IT! The kids will remember it forever.

And onto other exciting news, this new pillow is adorning our chaise in our living room. I just love it!

And this is my new bag by Orla Kiely. Love that too.

And Saturday afternoon was spent on this month's house project. Hopefully I will have pictures to post soon of the before and after.

Gunnar got to spend Sunday with his Papa at the golf course. He was pretty thrilled and I think he knew he was going to be getting some pointers during Papa's lesson. A busy week indeed.

update- Also kicked Aaron's butt in Scrabble.
