Teeth and Chuckars

Last week I took Emily to the dentist for a small filling.  We also had an orthodontist take a look.  She ended up getting 7 baby teeth pulled!  There was some screaming and crying involved.  Hopefully, her permanent teeth will grow in nice and straight!  They want to put partial braces on in a few weeks, then something called a herps appliance, then full braces, all for the low, low price of $4500.  We haven't decided on the full deal yet!

She felt well enough that night to go to a Chuckars ball game in IF.  The boys wanted to go to their church activity, so it was just Tony, Em, and I.  Emily ate lots of ice cream! I don't really like to watch sports, but Tony does, so I enjoy watching people and seeing my family have fun.

Fruits of summer

Saturday was a work day... mostly on our shed.  We got the metal roof on finally.. whew!  It was hot work, but very satisfying once it was done!  A big thunder cloud came and poured in the evening and it was so fun to watch the rain drip off the roof!  We started on the first coat of paint, and will have to finish it another day.
We also picked peas, strawberries, and a zuchinni from our garden.  On Monday our sprinkler system is going in and I am so very excited!!!!!!   Some of our summer projects are finally coming to fruition!
