Never a Dull Moment!

One thing my life isn't is dull, boring or routine! It's been a busy last couple of weeks around here! It all started about three weeks ago when my 14 year old ran into a book shelf and broke his toe. I mean, he really broke his toe! It broke into a Y shape and the toe was about two good inches from where it belonged.

Then the same child was referred to an Orthodontist and it was determined he did indeed need braces on his teeth.

Not to be outdone by his brother, our youngest started back up again with his morning "migraines." When we went into our pediatrician for a refill on his prescription medication it was determined because of his developmental delays he should see a neurologist. The neurologist agreed that his issues needed more looking into and scheduled tons of tests, scans and such.

Keep in mind we live 40 minutes out of the nearest town, and all these doctors and specialists are another 40 or more minutes each further from that town! For over two weeks straight, literally every week day and one weekend day we
were at these doctors!

Thankfully, so far everything is turning out okay for both children, though we are waiting for the scan results on the youngest!

Matthew is thrilled with his braces and for the first time in his life he has become a bit of a ham in front of the camera. Here he is showing off his new smile in the making!

We lucked out with a great orthodontist who even took the time on a SATURDAY to call just to check in and see how the new patient was doing a few days after getting the braces on. I was impressed with that!

We did manage to sneak in a trip to the pumpkin farm which Austin LOVED!

Hopefully, things are slowing down a bit now and getting back to as normal as they get for us around here! Of course with the holidays starting.......???????
