Broken Windows, Toes and School Deposit
This week was Phoebe's first week off school for the summer. Hopefully this week won't be an omen of what's to come for the rest of summer vacation. It was a very interesting and eventful week:
- The boys had their first dentist visit. Phoebe and I had our regular cleanings that day too. The boys did well and I think they are on their way to understanding we go to the dentist every 6 months and it's easy and fun.
- Tommy broke a window in the living room the one evening. He through a sippy cup at the window and broke the first pane of a double-paned window. We have it taped up until I can find out the best solution to get it fixed. My neighbor across the street had one of her boys break a window a few months ago. I'm going to ask her who she had fix it, but she's out of town for a few days.
- Phoebe fractured her baby toe on her right foot that same evening. She fell when she was playing. She had X-rays that confirmed a fracture and they taped it to the other toe, gave her a boot to wear for the next week, and told her for the next six weeks to wear sneakers instead of sandals or flip flops. But at least she's not with a cast on and can still swim in pools.
- I officially put in my deposit on the EMBA program in the fall. I officially got the approval that work will pay for part of it and the school is also giving me a partial scholarship.
- Last night we had the neighbor's daughter and her boyfriend over for dinner. They are both in their junior year of college and are cool to hang with. Her mom is the neighbor that's out of town, so we thought it would be nice to ask them over to dinner. Tom made lobster, roasted potatoes and I made a salad. It was very yummy!
- And last but not least, the boys pulled down half of the curtain rod in their bedroom this morning that we just installed the other week for the blackout curtains. Tom will be fixing that shortly.
I am now going to clean up the house and do some laundry before we go to a graduation party this afternoon with the kids. I'm sure we'll all have a good time. I'm looking forward to enjoying Father's Day tomorrow with the family as well.
