Summer Reading

I guess I know what Gordon will be doing all summer.  He brought home a paper where he had written, "I pledge to read 10  million books during my summer starting on May 17 - when 3rd grade starts."

Tricked You!

My baby lost his first tooth last night.  I won't lie, I almost cried.  He was too excited for me to be nostalgic for too long.  I remember when he got that first tooth.
Ellis had been asking me for a couple days to pull his tooth out. I suggested he ask his dad to do it for him.  Last night he brought some dental floss to Seth and asked him to pull his tooth.  The look on his face was one of sheer terror as Seth tied the floss to Ellis' tooth.  Seth asked if Ellis was ready and he said no.  Just as Ellis was changing his mind, Seth said, "What's that?"  Ellis looked and Seth yanked on the string and out came Ellis' tooth. When the tooth came out Seth said, "Tricked you!  All I needed to do was trick you." 

When he got up this morning, Ellis was pretty excited that the Tooth Fairy had come and given him a golden dollar.

I still feel a little morose that this is the last time one of my kids will have their first tooth fall out.  =)
