Tom Sawyer got braces last week. He was a real trooper and did a great job. I am so impressed with his maturity. He braved the hour in the orthodontic chair like a real champ and learned in just one day how to put the rubber bands in without a mirror. He hasn't complained hardly at all about pain. However, he wouldn't at all give me a nice smile for the camera!
Little Red Riding Hood has been very busy helping me by doing extra chores for money. She is saving it all for our trip to Washington, D.C. this summer. She wants to go to the American Girl doll store there for the first time. She cleaned the laundry room and the garage.
We went to all of our normal out of the home classes this week. These classes are on spring break next week. We are starting a short, two-week unit study and then taking another week off because Daddy will be home for a week. Then we will finish out the school year with a seven-week unit.
