My van needs new brake pads and tie rods. This is actually not all bad. My sister's boyfriend is replacing the brake pads on Thursday. The tie rods are actually covered under the warranty that we bought on the van. There was already other repairs needed that would be covered under waranty so I am trying to pick a day next week when the kids don't have school and I don't have work, to just bring it in. There are some logistics that make this hard. The main one is to take it in for free to have things fixed under warranty we have to go about an hour out of our way. I could take it to the Nissan dealership close by, but that is $50. At this point, I am that cheap to take it in for free and go out of my way.
In other news Isla has learned to sit up by herself and get into the sitting position. I knew she was sort of close to figuring it out this weekend and today she just got it. She can't do it every time but she knows what she is doing. She is also working on her bottom teeth. You can see the little white spots where they will come in. She smiles in a way that just shows off her gums. It is like she wants me to see that something is happening. We are working on more baby foods. She still doesn't love eating but she doesn't mind it. She would rather taste what we are having. I don't mind it, but she hasn't really figured out the whole chewing thing.
We seem to be pretty set now on public school. I don't see anything really changing our minds. One quarter left at our current school. I am sure it will go by quickly and then I might start freaking out. For now we are fine. I think Justin is very relieved that we only have one more tuition payment to make. I know I am!
