Lately

The youngest had her tonsils and adenoids removed two and a half weeks ago. She is like a brand new person, now that she has healed. Energy levels, appetite, every part of her improved. She had a bout with something tonsil related back in January, and was never the same in the throat. Same thing happened to her brother at the same age. I know tonsillectomies aren't standard anymore, and most pediatricians will try to convince you to put them off, but for both of my kids it was the best possible solution, and I have seen the almost immediate benefits to their health.

Otherwise, much has been the same. School, errands, charting and stitching, filling orders, cooking meals, bathing dirty bodies, cleaning dirty dishes, washing dirty clothes. We are on the final countdown to the last day of school, which is June 5th in our district. None of us can wait! We all have plans and lists of things we want to do together and apart during our free months. Time will tell if we can squeeze it all in.
