Off to Atlanta!

Once again, life got in the way of posting.

The Doc lost his Dad suddenly.

We've all been sick.

Lots. of. Tears.

But today.

Today we fly to ATLANTA!

To see old friends.

To try and sell our house.

Did you think we sold it?  Guess again!  Y'all need to be praying harder for us! :O)

Have fun in my absence!

Fierce RACCOON Trapper?

I have a friend who is a fierce Beaver trapper.
Don't believe me?
Go read about it for yourself!

I, on the other hand, am a fierce raccoon trapper.
I didn't set out that way.
In fact, I set out to be a fierce armadillo trapper.
Darn those armadillos!
They dig up flower beds.
They root in the yard.
They dig under fences.

They are a menace!

So, The Doc borrowed a trap from a friend.
We baited it.
Something ate the bait through the bars.

We baited it again.

This is what we found when we looked the next day:

He was so cute!

And so tired.

We just had to let him go!
We covered the trap, propped the door open and waited for him to run out.  I only turned my head for ONE second and drat I missed the winning shot.  It would have been good, too.

Run, Racoon, Run!
Go find your Momma!

Now back to becoming a fierce armadillo trapper!

You wish you were here!

 Don't be jealous!  It's tough living in paradise...

And the Pediatrician Says...

Yesterday was my turn at the doc.
(by the way, that shot in my shoulder is uber achey today!)

Today was JMonster's.

Except, he had to go because he's sick...poor little guy!

He's been junky and not acting like himself.
Skipped meals.
Cried over little things.
Skipped a POOL PARTY!

Thank goodness our pediatrician's office is open on Saturday!

Ear infection and sinus infection.

"I'm sick, aren't I Momma?"

"Yes, Buddy, you are sick."

"See?  I told y'all I'm sick!"
as he runs off to go play with his cousins.

Kids are so resilient!

Why can't I be?

And the Doctor Says...

Went to the doctor today.

Other than an emergent trip a few months ago, I haven't been since we moved here.


Did I mention I have white coat syndrome?

Especially with new docs?

I know, I know...I live with a doc.

Maybe it's because of The Doc.

That's another post.

So, the new doc says I have tendonitis in both shoulders.

He gave me some good drugs to help.

He thinks I have a Vitamin D deficiency.

(Really!?!  I was in the sun ALL SUMMER!)

He drew blood to find out.

I have arthritis.

Not RA, but old fashioned you did too many sports, arthritis.

He made me get a tetanus shot.

I gotta say...

I really like this new guy!

He's funny.

He's smart.

And he spent almost 45 minutes with me.

Have you EVER had a doctor spend that much time with you?

Homeschooling...Gearing up!

Whew, it has been a summer!

I taught lessons.

I taught more lessons.

We went to Montana.
(I smell a post a coming!)

We put the house on the market.
(I'll share more about that in another post!)

I turned 39.  
And am feeling every bit as old as I am. 

Johnny's aunt passed and we spent time with family in Dallas.

And now we are gearing up for homeschool.

With my sister.

And her 3 kiddos.


You heard that right!

The biggest opponent of me homeschooling has changed sides and will be homeschooling.

Tomorrow we head to our Classical Conversations orientation.
(I'll write more about Classical Conversations in a separate post.)

Then a week in Atlanta.
(Anyone wanna get together?)

Labor Day.


We cannot wait...
