Brady's Home!

All went well. He had two 'baby root canals' according to the surgeon and those teeth are now crowned. The other problem teeth only got fillings. The surgeon even did some cosmetic work on Brady's front tooth free of charge.

I knew Jeff would have a hard time finding outfits for the girls this morning so I picked them out last night to make things easier for him. He was a bit worried about fixing Allie's hair. I told him just to take the front section of hair and pull it back in a rubberband. When I got home from Brady's procedure, this is what I found on the bathroom counter...a bag of clippies!

I am almost afraid to imagine what she's sporting in her hair right now.

The crew


I know I haven't updated in such a long time. I don't get on the computer nearly as much as I used to. Believe me, that is a good thing! Brandon is now 17 and Cameron 19 (gulp! I was 19 when he was born). Everyone's started school except Brady, who will start speech next week. Brandon and Ryan started first. Brandon's now a junior and Ryan's in the 8th grade. Eighth grade is highschool here so I once again have 2 in highschool. Allie was next, starting Kindergarten a few weeks ago. She goes from 8:15-3:15 which is a long day for her but she's handling it well. We lived in Knoxville when the big boys started K and the only had half days. AnnaClaire started preschool last week and she loves, loves, loves it. She's going to the same preschool that Allie attended for the past 3 years. Cameron had his first day of college yesterday-and I didn't have to drive him there. He was so laid back about getting his license that I jokingly told him several times that I was absolutely NOT participating in a college carpool. He's also gotten a JOB(!!!!)working at a local fast food restaurant and he seems to enjoy it. We are hoping his paychecks might motivate Brandon to get a job as well, but so far not so much. Please keep Brady in your thoughts. His poor teeth are in awful shape and he'll be getting several crowns tomorrow. Because of his age and disposition (LOL) he'll have it done at the surgery center and will be put to sleep. Certainly not as bad a palate surgery but it's always a bit scary to have your child put under. Other than that, not much happening here. We've been working to get the house put on the market but we are slow moving (hmmm, maybe that's where the kids get that). Hopefully we'll be ready by mid September. Last month I was hoping for mid August so don't hold your breath!
