This is one of those weeks when everything seems to be happening at once.
After much thought and consideration, we decided to keep Hezekiah and Tucker in the Cub Scout pack we’ve been in since 2007. A big part of sending them to school this year was to maintain some normalcy for them, no matter what is going on with Apollo. They have been attending pack meetings with their brothers since they were toddlers and are familiar with most of the people. The only downside of that decision, is their pack, being made up of primarily homeschoolers, meets during the day. It is only once a month, but requires that I pick them up from school early that one day a month.
So, today, I’ll pick Hezekiah and Tucker up from school at 12, feed them lunch in the van, drop off at Tami’s at 12:30 so Carolynn pick them up and transport them to Scouts. Then I head to the dentist with Judah, who has an appointment at 1:00. When we’re done, I’ll head back to Tami’s to pick up the boys to take Hezekiah to his eye doctor appointment at 4:00. Then finally home to fix dinner.
Tomorrow is our day at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Apollo has a neck ultrasound at 12:30, we see his cardiologist at 1:00. He goes to the PASS clinic as 2:15 (to make sure he is healthy enough for his procedure on the 17th) and sees his pulmonologist at 3:00. Now pause for a moment, and imagine that schedule with a two-year old. Nap? What nap? Apollo did so much crying at our last visit to Children’s that we decided to take Enoch and Tilly along this time. The visit with the cardiologist is just for me and Chuck, Apollo doesn’t need to be there, so Enoch and Tilly can take him to the playroom while we meet with the doctor.
Wednesday Adalia takes her driving test at 8:30 and have an appointment with my naturopathic doctor at 12.
Thursday I have a family/newborn session in the morning.
Then I have Friday through Sunday to gear up for Apollo’s mic-key placement and our guests.
Now it’s 5:30 am and I’m off to get as much work as possible done before my children wake up.
