while we are in the temporary apartment… We’ve been very busy playing board games, working puzzles, and even enjoying the wii.. the kids especially find the check mii out channel to be fun. They like to figure out how others make neat characters, such as Pooh and the Pink panther.
(I obviously took this shot without remembering to change my setting from the up-close shot above to this one of the the two playing.. oops)
We quickly worked a simple small 300 piece puzzle and got excited to work a few more. We dashed out to chose a few more and came back with two 550 piece puzzles with cute animals… after working those, I got industrious and decided we need to try the 1000 piece puzzle, especially after seeing Jessica’s family enjoy it… I’ll show pictures of it finished later, but right now we are only about 20% into it.
We’ve also driven around the town in search of playgrounds.. one of the best ones we found was right on the post!
We’ve also all been to see the eye doctor. The three little girls are all clear with perfect vision, and the two older ones and I all needed new prescriptions. Cookies are shown in the shot above. I really like how they look on her, I can see all of her blue eyes!
Mine are another story.. I am far sighted and cannot see up close to read things anymore. I knew it was bad… I went from a +.50 to a +2.50 and have been going through a major adjustment period.
While we’ve been in one place, our lab has been staying with Nana and Guka. we’ve noticed over the three weeks we’ve been away, he’s lost weight and Nana says he hasn’t been eating. We thought it was just all of the changes he’s been through and all the suitcases he keeps seeing weekend after weekend… This weekend, we decided to take him to the vet and were shocked to learn he had dropped 15 lbs in three weeks, after having just been to the vet in Texas with a clean bill of health. Now, 15 pounds less, at 82 lbs and swollen lymph nodes, the doctor had his concerns. We had blood drawn and are hoping it is something that can be treated with Antibiotics. We will hear more hopefully in a few days, and praying for the best news. If you can, please say a prayer for our family dog, Bode, to be okay.
