Yesterday I got a reminder call that three of the kids have ENT appointments this morning. Oops, that one hadn't made it to the calendar! Ah, well, thank God for grandma's (and other forms of babysitters...) because my mom came with me +4 kids .
Short version, everyone behaved, Brianna needs surgery (adenoids removed and new tubes), Micah still has 2 ear infections and is now on antibiotic ear drops in addition to the oral anti's he's been on for 5 days already and he goes back in 2-3 weeks to recheck, and Emma's tubes are sitting there but non-functional but she has no fluid or infection so we'll leave her be and pray she's outgrown the need for them!
Tonight we have some young families coming over for our monthly-ish dinner get-together. I haven't done any prep work and I'm not sure I'm going to :) We're doing a "pasta bar" and I'm boiling pasta and others are bringing, chicken, sausage, sauces, veggies, etc. and each providing a drink of some sort. A simple fun way to get a bunch of families together and spend some time with each other!
