General update

As you can see from the picture - Alex just had braces put on. I couldn't convince him to smile much more than that, he is a little embarrassed about how crooked the teeth are right now. Hopefully that will be a different story soon enough though now that he has the braces. And gosh, he is getting so tall, I took this picture facing him and we were at eye level with each other. I know I'm biased and all, but don't ya think he is growing up so handsome? :)

Still no word on my contract. I am also up for my performance review though, and my boss at my contracting firm just met with my onsite bosses at the client regarding my performance. After their meeting, the boss from the contracting firm emailed me to say we need to update my resume. When I asked why, he said I had apparently gained a new skillset - walking on water! So if they don't renew me for as long as I'd like it won't be because they don't think I'm doing a good job. Got 'em all fooled I guess. :) So anyway, still no decison on what to do with the house - all the traffic we had been seeing has suddenly dried up anyway - we had one second showing, but they decided to buy a condo instead to avoid yard maintenance (older empty-nesters). It has been more than a week since our last showing, so the whole thing might be a moot point anyway. No matter what jobs we have/don't have we aren't moving unless this place sells first.

It's scary how fast they grow up, isn't it? He's a good looking kid and he'll be used to those braces in no time!

Good luck with the job situation!

that is one handsome fella and once the braces come off - you will be beating the girls off him.
It is nice to know that you walk on water job wise. I am sure you will have a bright future

When I first saw the photo, before I even read what you wrote, I thought "boy, he's sure getting big!" Tall, too, apparently. You'd better look out, Mom. Once the baby fat starts going away, he's gonna have one mighty fine looking jaw under there, and you'll have several teenage girls waiting on your doorstep.

Don't be too discouraged about the showings. You know this is kind of a dead time for Wisconsin real estate. I would not be wanting to move in more than 2 feet of snow.

Do me a favor though...keep your son away from my daughter. LOL

Good luck with the braces. Megan got hers off last summer and her smile is so beautiful.
