Our children are on spring break this week. I try to schedule appointments for after school or non-school days like today, so we had a dentist appointment for all five children scheduled for today. We actually drive almost two hours for this awesome kid-friendly dentist. Unfortunately about an hour and a half before we were scheduled to leave, my middle daughter decided to check her temperature because she had a headache. 101.4 *sigh* I call hubby and fill him in. Then I called the dentist's office. It was so hard for me to cancel five back to back appointments. However there was no way I could take a child with a fever into the office, I couldn't leave her home alone, and I couldn't leave her with anyone. The wonderful lady at the dentist's office worked with me to find a new appointment time. With five kids and avoiding pulling them out of school, scheduling gets rather tricky. Unfortunately we weren't able to get an appointment until early-June
We've spent the day being pretty lazy. The kids have been munching on the snacks that I bought for the drive. Now two of them are playing outside even though it's a little chilly and overcast. I'm tempted to sneak over to the Y for a bit an get a workout, but I might just wait for hubby to get home so we can go to the Y together after a quick dinner. We had planned to get take-out on our way back into town so I've decided to stick to that plan.
As I walk around the house checking on my children, I am thankful of all the blessings God has given us.
