A three-day-weekend turned into a four-day-weekend due to Reagan’s dental work requiring sedation (see her loopy pic below) and Jackson’s extra day off of school. Bennett, our homebody, LOVED his extra day at home- along with field trips off to cheer for his siblings (at multiple basketball games).
Because Reagan was born with a cleft lip, she has already had three surgeries, numerous teeth pulled, and now braces to help get some teeth lined up the way they should be. Down the road she will need a bone graph and most likely an implant- but for now she LIVES for the next color of rubber bands she gets to pick out for her braces. Several of her teeth did not fully form correctly in utero, so on Friday she needed a cavity filled on a permanent tooth, thus sedation was the WIN for that day!
Jackson had a travel baseball ice-skating fundraiser the Wednesday before the long weekend, so we invited a good friend of Reagan’s, and headed to the ice to tackle an activity that our family stinks at. HA! At one point I slipped and fell so fast that I literally landed right on top of Reagan- thank God she was not hurt. Jackson got a good LAUGH at our tumble, and it felt so good to spend time with these guys doing something “care-free” while Travis hung out with Bennett back at our warm house. Reagan’s friend, Caroline, was the best skater in our crew, and we had a FUN night together.
Although it may be hard to head back to school and work after a long weekend, Bennett’s buddy Ms. Arlene sent me this pic from her photo library and it made my day. There’s always something to SMILE about when we get to hang out with people at school and work who make our day BRIGHTER. Ms. Arlene is a favorite of Bennett’s, as well as a favorite of our entire family!
