A new school year, with new teeth
School started yesterday (and stopped today, thanks to a Hurricane day. Ugh). Ben was quite nervous in the morning, which seemed odd as he isn't changing schools and is now, as a fourth grader, among the older kids. He was even worried about his bag. He'd wanted a messenger bag, not a backpack. But yesterday morning was very worried the bag "looked dumb."
But he came home from school very happy and excited, about his teacher, his friends, school in general. So that was good.
Also, his teeth were fixed so when he smiles for real - not the sickly grin I got in these shots -- he looks back to normal. Of course, his teeth are forever compromised and the whole accident still gives me shivers...but hopefully these fixes will last him into adulthood.
