Chores going better and other stuff

Chores went much better today.  We have been rather slack around here this summer with baths and brushing teeth and brushing hair.  Getting back into the swing of baths was no problem (a little bubble bath goes a long way. 🙂 )  But getting everyone to do their teeth and hair, well that was another story.  I think that they are starting to get the idea though, and after only two days!

The only problem with chores today was when someone thought an afternoon chore was a morning chore.  (She was ready to unload the dishwasher and didn’t take to kindly to being told to do the trash instead.)  Hopefully by the end of the week, this will be second nature to everyone.

Dearie will be starting her blog when we start school the beginning of Sept.  (Haven’t decided if it will be Aug. 30 or Sept. 6, probably Sept. 6 as we have a bunch of appointments the week of Aug. 30.)  Since she has to write everyday, I figured that I would try to do better with my blog.  She still hasn’t come up with a name yet (any suggestions?), but once she gets it going I will post the link.

Speaking of appointments, we have a couple coming up.  Honey will be getting her eyes checked again.  This doctor does a complete exam, then dilates the eyes and then does the exam again.  Then they compare the exams and can tell which muscles are not working right and can give exercises to help those muscles work better.  If it works as well as they say, it should really help her reading.

Kiddo has an appointment with the Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor.  Her pediatrician recommended that she see one a while ago, “to rule out any structural issues affecting speech.”   I figured that if we went they would find SOMETHING, and she seemed to be doing fine so I put it off.  Well, her orthodontist recommended the same thing as he saw that she had a small airway.  He even guessed correctly that she snores.  I have a friend that has a ENT that she really likes so we will be going there.  I hope that they don’t see anything, but I bet that in for an education.  I don’t even know what I don’t know, so I have will have a lot to learn.
