These are pretty silly pictures, but we wanted to show what his teeth look like before they get all nice and straight! (He'll be getting the bottom ones on in a few months)

Tanner got braces just in time for his last year of middle school!

He had to get 2 teeth pulled, and while we were waiting for the orthodontist another boy was getting a tooth pulled.

The boy was screaming and thrashing and vomiting like you wouldn't believe.

Tanner started getting really nervous so we went and talked in the car.

Tanner decided to say a little prayer to help him feel better.

I was so pleased with my son because he knows the best way to gather courage, and he knows prayer really works.

He walked right back in - got his teeth pulled and got braces put on without a single complaint.

His mouth hurt for a couple of days, but we stocked the freezer with lots of yummy things to help him get through it!!

good things:

my brave boy

ice cream when your mouth hurts

all my kids got their teeth cleaned at the dentist the same day so we don't have to go back for another 6 months!

Your such a trooper to take all the kids at once. Taking my 3 together a couple weeks ago was painful. Kennedy gets an expander next month and then braces. So much money....I mean, fun :)
