Check out the new grill!!

Yes, yes I know you are all thinking. Not the best time of year to buy a grill but grills do get cheaper out of season. Well, this grill isn't out of season and will be used for several years to come.

This is what it looks like to have a ton of metal in your mouth. Summer has a bracket on every tooth but one because it is too far behind the other 2 to have a bracket on it and she still has in her palette spreader (roof of her mouth). We are so excited for this change because hopefully it will help her teeth start to straighten up. She wouldn't smile because her teeth are soooo croocked so we are working on that million dollar smile. She likes having braces. Do you remember siblings of mine, putting tin foil on our teeth and pretending to have braces (Was that just Erica and myself who did that). We thought it would be so cool to have braces. Anyway, she still thinks it's cool. However, as of right now I don't think there is a tooth that is touching another tooth in the top or bottom row because she can't chew food. They put a spacer behind the bottom front tooth so the top front tooth that was coming over it wouldn't knock off the bracket. You might be able to tell what I'm talking about in the pic but maybe not. Anyway, she's adjusting to having the front of a car in her face. Good luck, Summer!!

Didn't everyone want braces when they were little? I feel bad for Sum but I feel worse for you and Eric as you have to foot the is that pill going down?
