Anyway, now we are moving on to a different set of challenges. At least these challenges will be accompanied by a paycheck! For those of you who need a little update of our situation here it is... In July we moved back home to beautiful Oak Harbor, Washington with the intention to close on a dental practice on August 1st. After enduring one delay after another, and keeping the office location confidential (as requested by the seller) we are finally in business and ready to drive around town with our heads out the window sharing the news! This is not an associateship, so Mike is the only dentist (the boss man, yikes)! We are really excited about the staff we inherited and the new receptionist/assistant we are hiring on (my sister-in-law, Amanda)! Stay tuned for pictures of the office before we get our hands dirty and add some curb appeal! The following are a few pictures of our special day (and a few extra funnies)!
When I was heading upstairs to lay Asher down, I hear Haven say, "I'll be the dentist girl, welcome to my office!" When I came back down stairs this is what I saw. She was wearing a dress up hat as a mask and using a barrette as her dental tool!
Then they traded places! All of this in anticipation of seeing Daddy's new office, I'm sure!
Mike's first patient, my mom!
At the end of day, we invited all of the family to come and see the office. We celebrated with Klondike bars! The girls got a kick out of the chairs!
A funny side note: Today I happened upon this Barbie configuration! I always get a kick out of watching my kids play. My favorite part of this Barbie gathering is Ken sitting on the giraffe while leaning back on Barbie who is sitting in a arm chair! The girls really wanted to make sure I got the snakes (the belts and necklaces off to either side) in the picture as well!
Today before naps I was reading a Junie B. Jones book to the girls. This particular book was about Junie B.'s new baby brother who she lovingly (not) refers to as a monkey. This of course got us to talking about our own little monkey. Halle said Asher is like a monkey because he climbs on everything. Then out of nowhere, Haven said, "When Asher is stinky, we give him to Daddy. When he is cute and happy, we give him to you, Mom." I wonder where they would have gotten and idea like that?
