The real reason for the post is to show off these: Rachels little artist case and bag and the cakes mom and I made for her and a beautiful loaf of challah I made for Shabbat.

Sweets, Treats and Bad News
This post is way over due. My parents came over last Friday so we could have Rachel's birthday party on Saturday. I spent Thursday sewing Rachel's birthday presents and Friday preparing the bug cakes. Everything turned out really well and I've been wanting to post it for a while. Mom and dad stayed on until Monday when dad left to go back to work and me and mom spent nearly the whole day preparing an entire month's worth of meals and freezing it all. I think that method of making meals is going to work out well. I'm disappointed because Del was a little skeptical of our "crazy plan" and he's working swings this month so he won't even be here to see our plan succeed and I'll have to start all over again convincing him in October. Oh well.... Anyway, mom stayed on to help me with the first two days of homeschool. It went a lot smoother than we thought it would and a lot faster than we thought it would. But it was an interesting morning. First mom turned on the wrong burner (VERY easy to do on my stove) and a 11x7 glass baking dish was on that burner and it burst into a gazillion pieces. Major clean up ensued. I always wondered what would happen if you did put one of those dishes on the burner and now I know. Then I went to the dentist for my first cleaning in three years. This is why I hate going to the dentist: they give me HORRID news nearly every time I go. No I don't have any cavities BUT, due to the trauma from the nice DEAD horse Scirroco my top, left tooth is about to fall out due to internal resorbtion and must be pulled and I need an implant, my right front tooth needs to be crowned (that's the ugly yellow one, praise the Lord) AND the tooth next to the ugly yellow one (the short one) is experiencing the same sort of internal resorbtion and may need to be pulled and implanted if a root canal and crown don't work. I'm expensive. Hopefull the insurance is better than Tricare was. Pray Del gets promoted.
