Just a little quibble;    your root _slice_ which looks to be ads2, doesn't 
look all that full.  But, your root _partition_ which is ads2a at 102% is 
in trouble.

All of those partitions you show in the above df look to be
in the same slice.    (eg you have reversed your terminology - in
FreeBSD slice is the big main chunk named 1-4 and is divided in to 
partitions that are named a-h.

Anyway, someone else has already pointed out the du command to
you.    Use that to search for what is taking up more room than
you expect.

Second, 126MB is kind of small for root nowdays, though you might
get by if you don't put anything that grows in it.   To change it,
the best way is to back up each of the partitions and then rebuild
the disk partitions from scratch and then restore the backups in to
the newly made partitions.   Use dump/restore if you have tape
or a conveniently huge other disk available.
