Visiting the dentist, with five kids, is an ordeal. Not a bad ordeal, just an ordeal.
Get them all situated and checked…
Make sure everything is coming in just as it’s supposed to.
And perhaps do some inspecting of siblings.
Yes, even the teens are subjected to the same day. It’s just more efficient.
Happy to report that yet again, we’re cavity free. 100% success rate so far.
Time to go buy candy!
So how did little Thunderer’s first day of preschool go?
Just look at that happy face, that’s how well it went.
When the weather is nice, the park is going to become a regular wind-down time thing again after school. IT’s also a nice place to wait for the rest of the siblings.
And a fun place to find the family.
As school was starting and summer was ending our town has a “crafts days” festival.
Parade, booths at the park, etc.
The favorite is always the lawnmower pulling a ‘train’.
The pictures are a wee bit scattered since Redflare dove in and helped with editing again without keeping them in super close order.
Oh well, I’m just thankful she gave me a new set of pictures to use.
So speaking of siblings, how about our oldest and youngest?
She was so excited for school that first day that she wanted to carry her backpack to the bus stop even though, of course, she wasn’t riding with them.
Speaking of brother and sister…
It’s really hard to believe these two are both in high school now.
My first two babies.
I’m proud of them and who they’re turning into… most of the time. 😉
While visiting there was very much a lack of air conditioning, so taking refuge near water was helpful for Redflare to stave off heat exhaustion.
There was a creek they literally went and sat in.
The creek visiting was probably her favorite part of the trip. Forgetting the outside world and doing something that maybe they’d have done as kids had they been able to grow up together.
And then when this close to the Missouri river, one can’t resist but taking a picture of it, right?
