Playing Catch Up!

It feels like I don't make enough time to keep up with all that is going on with the family... it's a lot to keep up with now days!  I guess I should start with the big stuff, school.  That's right, school is out.  Mac is done with another year of preschool, and Ryan is done with the first grade!  I can't believe how much they both have grown this year!  Ryan is speaking a lot of Chinese, and Mac is still plugging away with his reading and writing.  Next year will mean second grade for Ryan, and one last year of preschool for Mac!  It's unbelievable how fast the year goes!
Other, less notable, things going on include a new addition to the family.  Tux is our new Golden-doodle.  He is the sweetest addition we could have made--as far as dogs go.  Although we didn't really plan on adding another dog, we are really glad that he is a part of the family now.  I guess we can call it a happy surprise.

Also, we went to see the Orthodontist for Ryan just a few weeks ago because she has a really crazy bite.  Turns out it was a good thing I took her in so soon.  We found out that her bite can be really bad news and has to be addressed early if you want to avoid some really serious problems.  She has an under bite, cross bite, and what they call a scissor bite.  I guess the scissor bite is really bad because essentially her teeth are locking together when her jaw closes.  If she were to ever get hit with her jaw closed her teeth would all break!  That's bad!  So we had three teeth extracted and she will be wearing her first of two sets of braces by November!  Crazy!!!  She will probably be the only second grader in braces, but she will also be the first kid to have that perfect smile too... if all goes as planned!

As for us, we are going to try to enjoy a summer of fun before it's back to the grind of school!
