Finally, after numerous visits and even more numerous dollars, Ryan's dental work is complete! He's had several fillings, and went today for his second visit to have his crown cemented in. Thankfully it fit perfectly, and he ended up not needing that last filling. Whew! I have to say a big thanks to the boys aunt Michelle who willingly offered to help shell out a couple thousand dollars to help cover the cost.
Now Ryan just needs to see the Stake President and his papers can get sent in. The Stake President isn't known for always being on top of things (I'm not complaining about Tierra not getting baptized for 2 1/2 years here though!), so I'm crossing my fingers that everything will at least be sent in by Ryan's birthday in October.
Everything is done online now, and Ryan finished his part of the online application as soon as he got back from the dentist. He needed to send in a headshot, so I snapped one with my camera. Good thing it was just a head shot because he was wearing his workout shorts, white shirt and tie, and Jason's suit jacket!
Okay, we decided that once his papers got sent in we're all guessing where he'll be going. So while the Texas Thomsons are with the Colorado Thomsons I want each of you to guess where he'll be going and email the list to me. Laurence's, please do the same. We'll be doing it here, and with Raquel's family, since Ryan is now good friends with them all. The person who comes the closest will receive a yet-to-be-decided goody from me!!!
