Back to school, back to work

Bryan's recovery is going well so off to work he went yesterday. I pray he doesn't push it too hard. His arm was sore yesterday when he got home.

Also, back to school for the rest of us. The girls had great attitudes and finished their work in no time. We went out into the back yard and gave the dog a bath in the wading pool, cleaned out the pool and set it under the slide. The girls had a blast. The dog however, not so much. After he was dry I proceeded to cut his hair. He's much cooler now.

The afternoon found us at the library for story time. It was Junk Food Fest! They had a puppet show, a story, and named junk food from A-Z. Fun was had during the 'push the butterscotch across the floor with your nose' game and the bubble gum blowing contest. There was caramel stacking, pretzel dropping, remember the 10 things on the tray, and junk food art.

Today, we'll get some work done, have lunch and hit the park with the wading pool (just 1 1/2 blocks away) for the afternoon.

Oregon Coast

Today we took the day off and sauntered over to the Oregon Coast Aquarium. We really enjoyed the exhibits, especially the "touch pool". Of course the "Passages of the Deep" is always a favorite. The sharks are getting big.

On the way home we stopped at Beverly Beach and tried not to freeze to death (it was only 52) while we explored the beach.

Got home to Albany to a beautiful 82 degrees!

Saga of the braces.....

Got my braces on Monday. Monday night while grinding my teeth as I slept, I knocked off 2 of my bottom brackets. Another hour at the orthodontist on Tuesday to put the brackets back on. Tuesday night..... you guessed it. I knocked the same 2 brackets off. So on Wednesday they took all my bottom brackets off. Wow does my mouth hurt. Couldn't chew for 3 days (lost some weight so I'm not complaining much). Now I definately have empathy for the girls.

Raining today. Supposed to be nice again starting tomorrow.

Today I joined the ranks of adults with braces. I keep reminding myself that when done it will all be worth it. Right now it hurts. Oh well......
