At the very end of may we had our 5th baby, Alice! Then a short 4 weeks later my husband graduated from his orthodontics Residency (in Virginia) and we moved across the country to Oregon. We drove the 3,000 miles back home and once we arrived in Salem we enjoyed 3 family reunions!
In July work got started on my husband's new office. To most, starting a new business in a floundering economy seems like the craziest thing to do (and it kinda did to us too), but we know it is right for us. We thought, prayed, and fasted about this decision for many many months. We know this is where our family is supposed to be and what we are supposed to do.
So with continued prayer, faith and loads of hard work it happened . . . the office was built and Johnson Family Orthodontics was born! We opened almost 2 months ago.
We are so excited for this new adventure for our family!
Did I ever mention I had braces recently? I actually got them off a few short weeks before the baby was born. I couldn't be happier with the end result. The only thing I'd change about it was that I would have been able to get them when I was a kid instead, but it was so worth getting them as an adult too.

If you've ever had interest in knowing more about braces I invite you to take a peek at our website www.LiveGrowSmile.com. There is a lot of great information on there and my husband even has his own blog and videos too! How fun is that?!
From the website:
