So what's been going on? Let's see:
1. Mims is less wise (ha ha) with the removal of all four wisdom teeth. She suddenly became a lot more expensive though! LOL
2. YiYi decided to join in the fun and just had a frenectomy done on Monday - having the flap of skin between her lip and gum trimmed with a laser. Ouch! Gotta hand it to her - only one pain pill and a couple of doses of ibuprofen.
3. New do's for YiYi and Evi Lou Who:
You can't tell it so much by the pix, but Erynn's is a stack cut and Eli has layers and long bangs. Both have blond highlights. I wish I had the cosmetology gene! They look so much better with a good hair cut! All I can offer is the straight trim.
4. Mims has completed driver's ed. Waiting on her 15th birthday and her return from Nicaragua. Can I really have a 15 year old in my house?
5. Mims and YiYi are getting ready to go overseas for their first missions trip! I'm excited for them and praying that GOD will open their eyes to see what the rest of the world is really like.
6. Little Man isn't so little any more. He may soon catch up to Erynn! I woe the day he gets taller than me! Speaking of which, Mims is right there! No! No! No!
7. Little Man is now taking swimming lessons from the man who taught the other three to swim. Mr. Finneran still has that magic touch - getting Isaac to put his head in the water on the first day after three sessions at the Y last summer to try to accomplish the same thing!
8. The oldest three are in full teenager mode - wanting to stay up late and sleep in. Didn't Isaac get the memo???
9. High school is upon us. (nervous laugh inserted here)
10. Red Honda (think Christine in the old movie - has a mind of its own - loves to set the alarm off on me at its own choosing) is running again after a two year stint in the back yard. Now for the Blueberry. And to get the AC in the Shammy running again...this ol' lady sure is hot natured now!
11. We actually have a growing garden now! Bubs and I make our every other day trips to pick giant cucumbers and a handful of tomatoes. We're also watering and Miracle-Gro(w)ing our vincas that have seriously multiplied in the flower beds. The poor verbena are being overtaken!
12. YiYi sent off her pix for the photo project she entered - similar to Erynn's Sketchbook Project.
13. Isaac attended his first VBS this week. I didn't go for the first time in years - though the second night I stayed there and did some work in the one unused room since the first night they ended up calling me about his tummy hurting.
14. Could it be that I'll finally see Mickey again after 35 long years? Big Daddie wants to go to Disney for my birthday. :) Will I survive the drive down?!?
