Little boy has dental surgery early tomorrow to pull his top four front teeth. They formed poorly in utero and are crumbling away. Hell be knocked out so he doesn't wiggle and it should be quick. Please pray that he will heal quickly #toothless

"Ooh, let's make a Norse village in our new Minecraft world, Midgard!" And with that, my dining room table is invaded by Northmen. (Because when you have homeschooled for 14 years you have lots and lots of books.) #unschooling #homeschooling #furyofthenorthmen

Two weeks in high tide

Homeschool high tide is going well so far. Gilbert is on week two of World History and just finished up one of my favorite books, Time Cat, by Lloyd Alexander. He’s also reading Child’s History of the World. Trixie and Gloria are done with week one of US History.

I’m keeping records, but it’s boring.

Health dept

I went to the health department today to obtain proof of pregnancy. It means I’m qualified for Medicaid, for one, which I hope not to need much since we’re planning another homebirth. But it will cover any tests/labwork for me. It also makes it a lot easier to get a birth certificate in the event of an unassisted birth, which we’ve had a couple times in the past. (This time we’ll have a midwife though, same one for Quiney and Perry.)

The health department was actually not unpleasant. They tend to be on your side there, and want you to succeed, unlike the employees of some other government services. The food stamp people can be just awful, for instance. I talked to three different people today and each of them was competent, kind, and friendly. A real plus. Way to go, Logan County.
