It was a VERY good day...

....For Austen !

Here he is at 10:45 a.m., after I had picked him up at school.....look closely at his mouth...(clicking on images will enlarge them)
Here he is, 1.5 hours later......
(7 years and $6,000 later!)


As if that wasn't exciting enough, at dinner out tonight he was presented by dad, his enrollment information for the driver's education class he was signed up for yesterday by said dad! They had a deal, if and when Austen wore those last finisher rubber bands enough to get those darn braces off, we would register him for driver's education! Yikes.....here we go again...child #3.
Sigh....a young man on the verge of taking that next step towards independence and freedom.

Woo hoo!!! I need to get bailey (13) started too! UGH. $6000?? YIKES. Amanda has perfect teeth so we haven't had to deal with braces yet, but Bailey needs them.

Yeah, congratulations to him! :)

I can't get over 7 YEARS!??? Poor guy...I think he should go buy some gummy bears, gum and anything else that is harmful to braces and have a serious binge!

How awesome the braces are gone!! Prayers for safety & parental peace of mind with the driving. I am soooooo not ready to go there yet.

Blessings,

Julie
