-Brock went to the dentist for the first time. He screamed. A lot. It was kind of like when he rode the dragon ride at the fair. (Nooooo! I, don't, WAAAAAANNNNNT TOOOOO!) But then we convinced him to sit in the chair and go up and down. Then I counted his teeth for him. Then the dental hygienist started with her mirror and pick, and all of a sudden: "That feels good." He ended up doing everything but the X-rays.
-I signed Jakob up for a hip-hop class. We were originally going to have him take karate, but we're thinking the dancing thing is more down his alley right now. His first class was on Monday, and he loved it.
-We refinanced our house. It went a little like this: "Hey. How about we knock 11 years off your mortgage? Oh, and we'll also take 1.5% off the interest rate for you, too. Is that okay? And we're thinking we'll give you some cash back, which you'll use to pay off another debt you have. Also, it's only about $300 more a month, is that too much? And doing this will cut out October's house payment for you. How does that all sound?" Um, yeah. They really had to twist our arms to get us to sign the papers.
-I've found some awesome sites lately. Check 'em out: Item Not As Described, People Of Walmart (thanks, Marci!), Emails From Crazy People (mind the f-bombs), Lovely Listings, Passive-Aggressive Notes, Probably Bad News, and Awkward Family Photos. Hilarity ensues.
And here are our little dance machines getting all crazy. (Some of the sweetest moves are between 1 and 2 minutes. I wish I knew how to edit down videos.)
