Trent got his braces on Thursday and now he is mad as fire.... It's not as bad as he thought they would be. He wouldn't let me take a picture so that will come later. He decided to get the silver brackets after all and Blue, Yellow and Red bands. So now he looks like your typical 13 year old boy.... 22 months will come in a hurry.. I hope.

So... I have never been a HUGE Chipper fan.... But ... you have to admit... that he IS THE MAN....
I believe that this might be one of those... "you don't know what you had until it's gone moments.." This time next year we will all understand.... He has had a blessed career for sure.
As you can tell... the man is tired... if you ever watch him "running" off and on the field during each game you notice the effect baseball has had on him. I'm glad that he is at peace with his decision to retire. What a player....
Below is a good interview... he does genuinely sound humble..

I took Alyssa yesterday for an eye exam... With our insurance it was only $10 so I figured what the heck....I totally think she fudged the exam just to get glasses. The doctor said that she could use alittle help seeing close up... so doesn't she look cute?

Yesterday Trent had 4 remaining baby teeth pulled so we could start the braces process. They were practically just lying in his mouth. He would not ever pull or tug at his loose teeth so the only option for the dentist was to pull them. Now I must decide to put him in clear ones or sliver ones. They will put clear on his top teeth but not his bottom. oh... decisions... decisions....

So the last week of summer has come and gone. I think the kids had a good summer. They went to Daytona and Texas, birthday parties and went swimming. So now its time for school to begin.
Tonight both kids had open house. They were so excited to meet their teachers and see their friends. Alyssa has been ready for school since June and Trent is just ready to be back with all his buddies. I remember growing up and waiting all year to see what friends are in my classes or if I had lunch with anyone I knew. And so on Monday a new adventure will be begin and so will homework.
