Welcome to Friendship Friday! We’ve had a great week! I hope you did too!
Bethany has been very well behaved most of the week with the exception of refusing to get ready to go get a blood test on Thursday morning. Since we also had dentist appointments for all the other kids later that same afternoon in a different city 35 miles in the opposite direction, we decided not to push the issue with her. Good thing we don’t need an appointment for the lab. We can easily go any time!
We didn’t take Bethany with us to the dentist’s office, so we left her happily at home playing hide and seek with her beloved Mary. We promised to take her somewhere when we got home! Good thing we did leave her at home, because she never would have handled waiting around at the dentist from 1:00 to 3:30!
Rebekah had no cavities but her xrays revealed that she’s going to have trouble with her wisdom teeth! YAY!! She will need to have them extracted in about two years! Jeremiah had what may be a small cavity. He has to go back for an exam and xrays! Nate needs a filling and two teeth pulled! UGH!! He has a lot of sensory issues and tooth brushing has always been difficult for him.
After our fun trip to the dentist, we decided to take advantage of being “Bethanyless” and treat the kids to dinner and ice cream! We got a picnic dinner at Brooks House of BBQ! The meat eaters got ribs and chicken and the vegetarians ate cole slaw, fries, macaroni salad, and onion rings!! A well balanced dinner…NOT! The best part of this dinner was eating it outside on a beautiful day and being able to really enjoy ourselves without worrying about Bethany! After dinner we went grocery shopping and got ice cream! A good time was had by all. Even Nate enjoyed himself despite getting bad news from the dentist!!
After arriving back home from the our trip into town (23 miles NE from home), Malcolm and I took Bethany out for fries twelve miles away in the other direction (in the same town where she was supposed to get her blood test)! She was delighted when she realized that one of her old aides from her school days three years ago was there! Actually, I was surprised that Bethany even remembered her! She was there with her four year old son and his little friend! The kids were enchanted with Bethany and kept giving her high fives and hugs! She loved all the attention! The evening was a lot of fun and a successful, positive social experience for Bethany!
Jeremiah spotted and took the photo of the bunny at Brooks House of BBQ! Didn’t we have a gorgeous view while eating dinner? If you look carefully, you can spot Nate again standing in line to get ice cream. The hand is Rachel's with the wire jewelry that she designed and created. She didn’t join us because she is away busy being a camp counselor!
