Brave Brandon

Brandon was determined to pull his tooth himself instead of letting me use the dental floss or pliers. He worked for a long time last night but nothing yet. Ethan was ready to help by holding him still while I pulled, but I set a deadline that if he didn't get it out by after lunch I would pull it before he went to grandma and grandpas.
Guess what!!!!!

He pulled it all by himself!!!

Great job Brandon!

Ethan has been wanting to go fishing for weeks and we finally had a chance.
He was full of questions.
No one caught anything, but we had fun.

It took Ethan quite a few tries, but every once in a while he was able to cast it himself.

Brandon can cast his line better than Mommy can, that's for sure.


I decided to try and take some pictures myself and have printed instead of going somewhere to have their 8 year old and 6 year old pictures taken. It was a lot of fun, and I might've found a new hobby.

This is one of my favorites. I do want to go back out and see if I can get one with some better smiles.

Ethan's friend from the previous week was at pom pom camp and wasn't there, so she made Ethan a friendship bracelet. He wore it and talked about her all week about how much she missed him.

Brandon's first lost tooth

Brandon lost his first tooth at Grandma and Papa's house. A little dental floss and a tug by Papa and out it came.
Now Brandon wants to loose all his teeth at their house, their tooth fairy gives more money than ours does. ;o)

More riding

The second session Ethan was back to his flirting self. He now has a couple of favorite pretty girls that are sidewalkers with him.
