Between kids and teeth...

We are having a busy period. In about 4 weeks the kids get their holidays from school. In week 22 we had the "avondvierdaagse", which is a typical dutch thing.Schoolkids in the age of 6 to 12 get to walk a distance for 4 evenings in a row. It's not only for schoolkids though, sportsclubs or families and individuals can also sign in. Everybody gets to walk a distance of 5, 10 or 15 kilometers. My youngest two signed in for 5 kilometers and my oldest son walked 10 kilometers per evening! The kids can't walk on their own, they have to be supervised. I signed up for that task and wednesdayevening I walked the 5 kilometers with my youngest and some of his class-mates. It's a very busy period, cause you have to eat early (in order to be in time). We ate around half past four....
They all got their medal the last evening, so I'm very proud of my bunch!

Then last monday Jan and Teun went on schoolcamp. Jan went to "camping Ronostrand" and Teun went to "camping het Amerveld".
Monday two fathers and I had to help putting up the tents. This was quit an experience since I'm not used to doing that.... (the last tent I put up was 10 years ago!) but we got the job done ;). Tuesday both my boys came back home and they had had a great time!

Then there's the teething part of this blog.... anyone with fear of dentists should probably stop reading right now! Since we live here I had to undergo several dental "projects". I had 3 root treatments and am preparing for a crown (fake molar). Today I had another fitting for the crown. It had been off by half a mm (!) before, this was the third fit and now it's ok. My gums are a bit sore now....
Tomorrow I have to go to the dental lab to pick a colour for the fake tooth, I think purple would be nice LOL. Our car broke down so I have to go by bike. My estimate is that it will take me about 45 minutes to get there.... pfffffff.
I'm off to do some grocerieshopping, bye!
