It will take us a week or so to get our schedule ironed out the way we like it, and I am ok with that....really, I am. The first day is always just a little quirky, but we managed to do a really cool science experiment that was extremely informative about the formation and destruction of molecular bonds. David was really intrigued, which is always good. It looks like he is going to be a big science nerd like me!
We drove to Texarkana tonight for two meetings:
- David's Toastmaster Club meeting (Youth leadership/public speaking group)
- My homeschool meeting
It was a great time! There was a guest speaker at my meeting that discussed teaching children with various learning disabilities....very informative. It's always nice to hear different teaching methods for all types of kids.
They had an art program there also to keep the little ones occupied...so even Braydon had a pleasant experience.
David was named, "Vice President of Public Relations" in his club, so he is just ecstatic about that. He is all pumped up about trying this new adventure. I am glad that he is looking forward to doing something different.

I was told by the first surgeon I went to that I would have to have my left jaw broken and wired shut afterwards, but the doc that did it didn't seem to think that particular procedure was necessary. He did say it would probably feel about the same post-operatively....yay for me! Anyway, the teeth were sliced out, stitched up, and all I had to show for it was bulldog cheeks and a bruised face.
The post-op period was definitely not fun, but I am doing very well now and I appreciate everybody's calls and generosity......thanks!

So, I am not allowed to eat before the surgery, and my stomach is growling as I type. It's a great appetite suppressant, huh? (Except for my appetite is not really suppressed, just not permitted...hurumph.) My surgery is at 2:00 p.m. and we have to take the long drive to Kana to make it happen. Maybe I will take a nap on the way there so the suspense of the drive will not keep creeping up on me....or I will just uncontrollably jabber until my husband's ear falls off. That will be a fun hour for him.
Couple things about the procedure that you all may find amusing! There is a slight chance that afterwards my stitches could come out prematurely causing drinking to be an entirely different experience for me and everyone around. You see, my tooth sits very close to my sinus cavity and if not perfect, I could leak liquid from my nose each time I take a drink! How wonderful! Won't I be the life of the party? The kids will just love me....maybe I will make it on the internet!
I am sure everything will go as needed...just thought I would get a few thoughts off of my chest. I will post about my experience soon...

What a nice treat at the end of a workday. He also had a very endearing card stating how much he loved me. It's these wonderful sporadic displays of love that I adore about him. I am so thankful to have found my one and only! Thanks honey, I love you.

Braydon is doing preschool/kindergarten this year. We are using Sonlight and Handwriting Without Tears for him. I haven't purchased a math curriculum for him yet...I am still looking into them..thinking maybe Saxon, Singapore, or Horizons. (More research for me!)
David is going to do Sonlight for Bible, Literature/Reading, and History. We are using Christian Liberty Press Grammar and Spelling along with Apologia Science. He will still be doing Spanish and Health (Abeka), and of course, Math (Saxon). He will also be learning his way around the kitchen more and will be building an entire engine with his Dad.
I am excited to see how this year goes...last year was a sucess...so we will see!
