One of the friends we made here is our orthodontist. Exactly one year and one day ago he outfitted Elisabeth (and before that, Alison and Amy) with braces, charging us only for the labs and equipment involved. This has been a HUGE blessing to our family. God was good to introduce us to this man! Dr. W. will not be helping us load our truck, however. (Isn't that why you are supposed to make lots of friends before you move? For help loading?) :)
Today Amy and Betsy had their brackets removed. What gorgeous smiles my girls have now!
Other friends have offered to help us load our truck, keep our kids overnight, or bring us a meal. Some have even brought us homemade soft pretzels, and others chocolate! (Now that's a true friend!)
What would we do without all of you? We are going to miss you, each and every one.
