Laughing Gas

A couple of weeks ago we had to take the boys to their semi-annual dentist appointment. We try to always make it a fun little trip by going the day before and staying the night in a hotel since it's in Savannah, about 45 minutes to an hour away, depending on traffic. My boys love staying in a hotel with an indoor pool, so that's what we do.

We had planned on taking them to the beach, but they didn't want to leave the hotel. The only time we left was to get some food. That made it easy for us. I sat by the pool with the boys when I wasn't in it with them, and Larson chilled out in our room watching football. Relaxing enough for us both. It's things we enjoy doing.

Back to the laughing gas.  After their cleaning, the dentist came around for their exams.  Jubal had a small filling in one of his very back teeth put in two years ago.  There was no cavity yet, but it was soft, and to preserve his teeth the dentist recommended it.  It had become loose, so the dentist now recommended capping it.  The procedure could be done later that afternoon, so we decided to go ahead and do it.

In the time we had between our morning visit and the procedure later that day, we killed time by making our regular trip to Chuck E Cheese's.  The boys love that place.  Then we went to get soccer cleats and socks, and just piddled around until time to be back.

Jubal is a big scaredy cat at the dentist, so when the assistant asked if I wanted him to have laughing gas I said yes without hesitation.  I recorded little bits of it.  He was so funny.  There were scared tears at first, but they dried quickly.  Ha!

He was a trooper.  It was the best dental experience we've had with him.  I say that because both of my boys cry and have to sometimes have their hands held down during just a cleaning.  They seriously hate the dentist.  It gives them such anxiety.

This was a successful day, though.  I'm proud of my big boy. :)

Grandparent's Day~2016

I have been severely slacking at keeping up with my journal for the boys. It's not that we haven't been up to anything, it's that we've just been very busy doing everything.  Before I get into Grandparent's Day, let me try to catch up on a few things I want to remember about right now.

With the beginning of a new school year, and both boys in school this time around, it's been a little adjustment.  I'm such a stickler for routine, and the slightest change sometimes catches me off guard.  The boys have also begun a new season of soccer.  This is Jubal's second year, Gentry's first.  I wasn't ready for Gentry to start this year, but Larson wanted to go ahead and get him started.  We also requested that he be on Jubal's team, which is a leap into a different league than he should be in.  He's not really mature enough, nor is he experienced enough, but he's catching on, and his coach says he's got so much heart.  Their first game is October 4.

First practice.

Now onto Grandparent's Day.  Thankfully, my mama was able to go this year.  She went for Jubal's Pre-K year, but wasn't able to make it last year for his kindergarten year.  She was so excited to get to go and be with both boys.  They had a fun time at the book fair where she spoiled them, too.  However, she didn't make it to Jubal's classroom to see the little program they put together for all of the grandparents due to the fact she's not able to walk long distances and gets tired easily.

She did make it to Gentry's, though.

My friend, Erin, got these pics for us.

She was also able to get a picture with both of the boys for her day.  I absolutely love this picture!!  I'm so happy my boys get to enjoy their mammaw, especially since my daddy, their pappaw, is no longer with us, and the boys never got to know him.

He would have been so tickled to get to go with my mama on this day. :)

So, from now on I will try to do a better job of keeping up with our busy, yet mundane, life.  One thing is for certain...these boys keep me on my toes, and I'm so thankful for my entire family.
