The Dentist and some other stuff.

 This week we went on a homeschool field trip to the dentist's office that see's the people on the bases nearest us.  It was really nice. They had a powerpoint for the kids and a goody bag.  They took them on a tour of the clinic and even checked their teeth really quick.

This is Corina in the lab where they make dentures and crowns and things like that.  See all the teeth molds behind her?  We even got to see how they make gold teeth.  

Here is Corina getting her teeth checked.  No Cavities!

They even checked Aurora's teeth. She didn't want to get in the chair so this was the next best thing.  No Cavities for Aurora either.  Yeah!

On a different note my daffodils are about to bloom.  If we had one warm day here I'm pretty sure they would.  We already saw some in bloom when we were driving the other day.  It's still pretty rainy and cloudy here but it's starting to be nice.  Spring is on it's way here. Last year when we came there was a festival in York called the Jorvik Viking Festival.  We missed it though and we missed it again this year.  It's going on all this week though.  maybe next year we will be able to go.  Recently Mark had been working super hard at work.  The vikings ruled England until 1066 when when William the Conqueror took the throne at the Battle of Hastings.  In Corina's homeschool curriculum she has to learn about the beginning history of England and why the English language is the way it is.  That was part of our lesson the other day.  How lucky is it that we have actually been to the spot where that took place and I could actually show her pictures of us there.  That is so amazing!!!!

Last but not least Gwyneth thought she would be a little mischievous and draw on the wall with a pencil the other day.  I have to say that under the circumstances she did and interesting job.  It kind of looks like she made a creepy face.  that must have been the mischief coming out.  Click on the picture to make it bigger if you can't see it.  

Well, that's all for this week. I hope everyone has a great week.
