Almost There...

Happy Birthday to my awesome husband Dan! He is thirty-two years old today, and I am more in love with him than ever. He is a wonderful father and husband. It's hard to have him gone, but I know he's working so hard to be the best at what he does. I am so proud of him, only about a week and a half left of his first year, YAY!!! His reign as the current class president is about to come to an end (Wahoo!). Although he's not completely out of the woods yet, he still needs to study and take his first year boards, which he is planning to do the beginning of July.What a ride this first year of Dental School has been. Our lives have changed so much this past year and a half. We moved to a new city, Danielle and Dan have both started new schools, we had a new baby. The change has been a lot to take on, but good. We miss our family and friends in Utah so much, but we are having a great experience here. I admire Dan working so hard to do what he wants to do professionally, and not giving up when it got hard.

Anyway, I could go on for a while, so I'll stop now. This last week was pretty uneventful. I was completely caught off guard by Rayce's dental appointment. The good news was he was perfect at his appointment. He did amazingly well. The bad news was he had ANOTHER CAVITY! So he had two fillings. For all of you out there wondering if I ever actually brush my kids teeth, I can say most of the time I do. Rayce just happens to like juice and sugar more than your average child. At least that's what I tell myself. I always say Rayce is the equivalent of having five kids anyway. He is a complete handful and not making too many friends in the neighborhood. He's taken to throwing rocks at the neighbor boy's head. I was not at all prepared for the aggressive nature of a boy, or maybe it's just my boy. Whatever it is I need to put him back in soccer as to channel some of that aggression into something that could make us lots of money someday. Who knows, maybe he'll end up in a profession fitting his personality such as an ultimate fighter.
