a big day and a giant gator

 Josh had a loose tooth for a while, but he refused to wiggle it because it freaks him out. This morning he realized it was extra wiggly. He ran to hide in a corner to feel sorry for himself, but jumped up crying a few minutes later because his tooth fell out. He wasn't happy about it, even though the tooth fairy siblings came five minutes later and left him a handful of spare change.
 He came up to me later in the afternoon and asked if I'd check to make sure none of his other teeth are wiggly. He's safe for a while longer.

This afternoon, we went to Meet the Teacher Day at the elementary school. It's like a treasure hunt. The school doesn't tell you who your teacher is, you have to wander up and down the hallways until you see your name on a classroom door. Their teachers all seem wonderful, and the kids are excited to go back to school.

After we ate dinner tonight, we remembered Alberta the Alligator was making a grand appearance at our village. We went and got a second dinner of pizza and sandwiches, had tattoos put on our hands, colored pictures, and hugged a giant gator.

Also, if you look closely at the above picture, you'll see both Ethan and Josh have bruises on their foreheads. The pool is not a safe place for our family. Ethan was nailed in the head a few days ago by a dinosaur. And gymnast Josh did an amazing back-flip into the deep end of the pool, but landed on the cement edge instead of the water. Luckily, nobody drowned , no blood was spilled, and we didn't need to involve doctors.

It's a sign. Time for school to start.
