Just Thursday 3

We were off to town for an orthodontist appointment. Dancer got new bands that are all one piece and tonight she is in pain. It will be tapioca for a few days until the pain goes away. She did pick out green and white as her band colors hoping they will be good luck for her basketball team's tournament this weekend. The team colors, obviously, are white and green. We made a stop at the library for the kids to use the computers. At home we have dial up internet from the dark ages. It is hard to play games, we don't even try to see anything that has a video with it and many pages either don't load or take too long to load. They like to play Webkinz and go to each others virtual houses. In an hour at the library, they can do what takes about three hours on our home computer. Grocery shopping was another errand. I hate shopping and only do with it is absolutely necessary. It is so depressing shopping when you come out with over $100 of groceries and you have about four bags. With coupons we saved about $22 and got a $6 off coupon for next time! Doesn't take much to get us excited! Dancer got in a little reading. She reads in almost every spare minute she has, usually reading about 3 - 4 books a week outside of what she reads for school. She brings books with when we go in the car unless we are listening to one on tape. She watches t.v. and reads at the same time. Sometimes I will find her at night with a book under the covers long after I thought she was asleep. Pretty much any time she can fit in reading a page or two she has a book in her hand.
Grandma is staying with us for the weekend and she brought a couple pair of sunglasses. Here is Spark being goofy in one of the pair.
