No more braces for Lindsey

Here's Lindsey in the waiting area at Dr. Bob's office prior to having her braces removed yesterday. She was so excited and was counting down the days to have her bare teeth back. This was a "before shot" and my battery died just after this, so Dr. Bob loaned me his camera, and I'll be going there tomorrow for an appointment of my own, so I'll get the other pictures.
Zach came over yesterday and hung out for a several hours, as he did the day before, playing computer games with Christopher, helping me with a few chores, and hanging out with Lindsey. It's always fun to see him each summer, but sad that they'll be selling their house down the street this summer, as it doesn't really make sense financially to live in Taiwan and own a house in Austin that they're not living in often enough.
Craig and Lindsey had fun at driving school yesterday, logging more driving time with the driver's ed teacher. I get so nervous each time I drop her off. It scares me to death to think that my little girl is driving around in rush hour traffic in Austin because of all the road rage. I worry so much about her safety. She is getting better each time she practices driving.

Hurray for no braces! I remember when I got mine off I could not stop smiling or running my tongue across my smooth teeth. They are so worth it though for pretty teeth!!

Lindsey, I cannot wait to see the pictures without. I had work done on my teeth from the time I was 9 til I was 14. Chris sees my old pictures and calls me snaggle tooth! What we would we do without braces. They are a great invention!
Oh, I can't wait to see her at church tomorrow! Getting braces off is a license to smile away :)

I want to see the without braces photo now. She looks so cute. Morgan will be envious, she still has a couple more months with hers.

Whoo-Hooo freedom from braces! Sounds wonderful. I didn't experience them, but I hear getting them off is the best feeling ever. :) Congrats Lindsey!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
