3/14 - After 2+ weeks of worsening shoulder pain, I broke down and went to the chiropractor. After that I felt so much better, but still had a full week of muscle soreness. Getting old sucks.
3/21-3/28 was spring break from school! And how do we celebrate spring break? By getting 3 of Josiah's teeth pulled! The orthodontist recommended we have this done to help the permanent teeth come in a little straighter, and much to my disappointment our dentist agreed.
I was so nervous, but Josiah did great. Here he is with the heart rate monitor, blood pressure cuff, oxygen, and IV port. He was such a trooper. It was really fast to get the teeth out, and then we got ice cream and went home to heal. We were really hoping for some loopy conversations when he came out of anesthesia, but it really didn't seem to phase him. The worst part for him was not being able to drink through a straw and having gauze in his mouth for most of the day. By dinner time he had finally stopped bleeding and was feeling great.
3/25 - 3/27 - we went to my parent's house for Easter. They are working on remodeling their basement, but that didn't stop Joe (Josiah's stuffed dinosaur) from tying the knot. This is part of the wedding ceremony. Even a parasaurolophus deserves love.
4/2 - Jason and I went to Branson for our church's annual marriage retreat. We got to play tennis, do a little hiking, do two escape rooms with a group, and hear some great teaching from one of our favorite pastors from when we lived in KC. Thanks to Jason's parents for watching the kiddos!
4/15 - when I went to pick up Josiah from school, this cow (again in the neighbor's field) was in labor. When we got home we got to see the brand new baby! It had not even gotten up to walk yet. Lots of fun education for my boys. "Mom - what's that thing hanging out the back of that cow?!"
