It was a big day in the Morris home!
Evelyn began swim lessons this afternoon. She was SO excited about the "poooool" and I was SO not excited about putting on a bathing suit. Oh, well.. the things you do for your kids! :) She did AWESOME in the pool.. totally loved it. I had a feeling she would. She loved it so much that she threw a huge tantrum when we had to get out of the pool. It lasted until we got to the car... so fun! Needless to say, she had no trouble falling asleep tonight! This pic is the best one of both of us.. again.. me in a swimsuit is NOT pretty. I will try to get better ones as lessons go on! She was having so much fun splashing. "spash".. her new favorite word! :)
And in other big news, my sweet husband got his braces off this morning! I was so excited to see him tonight when he got home from work! His teeth look SO good and he looks even more handsome, if that is possible! He has been such a trooper the past 2 years dealing with the hardware in his mouth! Now I can pack carrots and hard boiled eggs in his lunch again! :) The only bummer is that Evelyn kinda freaked out when she saw him (granted, it was after swim class and she was tired). She has never known him without braces and has always been fascinated with them. I am sure she'll get over it... he's not putting them back on!
Here he is the night before he got his braces. Aug 2006. You can click on the photo to see his teeth better.
.. and now June 2008! They look so good!
Overall a good day. A very good day!
