Oren started soccer last week. He likes it so much better than T-ball, which we tried at the beginning of summer. There he had to stand and throw a ball, how exciting. In soccer he gets to run and kick a ball for an hour. Much more to his liking. Plus, he can kick far better than he can throw! And they will get to have games too, unlike the T-ball, because he is in the 1st-2nd grade teams. So he's excited. And Nathan will start this next week, if I can remember to get his sports physical taken care of. For a 4-year old, that's ridiculous...
I got my new camera on Friday! I decided to go with a different camera, a little better one. That has been fun to play with. It has lots of buttons! I don't know what they all do, but I like buttons! :-)
This weekend is a huge Air Show, with parachuters, breaking the sound barrier, the Thunderbirds, skywriting...
How cool is that! We walked out the front door to go down to Mom's house, and they were writing this to kick off the air show! Very neat to watch.
And we went down to Mom's to spend the day. Mark had to work, and I wanted to get off the base for a day. It was great. We had a nap! And plenty of cute pictures too!
I see you too!
"If you're happy and you know it..."
Deep in thought
At one point in the evening, Samuel came running into the kitchen while I was cutting Mom's hair. "Did you see Oren's loose tooth?!?!" What loose tooth? I am sure I would have known about a loose tooth. In comes Oren, with two front bottom teeth sticking out at funny angles. And a mouthful of blood. Funny how a little spit makes a little blood look like a lot! "I tried to open a lid with my teeth!" I'll bet you won't try that trick anytime soon! Notice the freaked out look on his face. We had discussed losing teeth about 6 months ago, when the dentist pointed out that one was pre-wiggle. Just the tiniest bit loose. And his friend just lost her first tooth, so he's seen it recently. Mom assured me that if they weren't already a little loose, there's no way they would have popped out like that. He has opened things like that lots of times, and this is the first incident like this, so I guess she's right.
I had to pull one all the way out because it was hanging on by a thread. I was worried he might swallow it last night. But the other was still holding on okay, although it wouldn't stay in the socket very well. When he woke up this morning, he pushed on it with his tongue and it came right off. "I wanted to be able to eat!" Good, because with a tooth that loose I wasn't sure how eating was going to work. He was much happier this morning.
They grow up way too fast. One in first grade and loosing teeth. One starting kindergarten next year and is out of Nursery. And one is in a toddler bed instead of a crib.
