Cub Scouts Crossing Over Ceremony

Friday Night was the Crossing Over Ceremony for our Cub Scout Pack. Nathan moved from Tiger to Wolf Cub, and Corban officially joined the pack and received his Tiger Scarf. Jason is so excited to share this experience with the boys. Jason is quickly becoming a front man in the pack and everyone loves his crazy antics, they do help to make the evening less boring!! :)

End of the Year Parties

Brooklyn's class enjoyed having their Play Day first thing that morning, which had been previously canceled during the Swine Flu freakimic. She won First and Second Place in the two races she competed in. She also got her TAX scores in, and is officially a commended student! We are so proud of her in every way!

Nathan's class had luau games and sno cones, and the kindergarteners had water day again with water slides and every other kind of wet fun. They all had a blast and can't wait for summer!

Editorial Note: Thank you to all of you who have informed me that it is TAKS. I prefer to call it TAX, because that's what it is. One more way to tax our teachers, the system, and the kids to their max. :) The Lord has called my kids to a public school education, to be a light in that arena, and I support that completely, but that doesn't mean I agree with all of the politics involved with public education. ;)

It's Raining Teeth

I am officially the tooth puller of the neighborhood. I even do drive by service. I wasn't surprised to get the call from Evan late one night asking to come down for his tooth. He ran down in his pajamas in the rain, desperate for his first visit from the tooth fairy!

Corban kept the fun going the same week losing his first tooth! It was a race to get that one out since the permanent tooth was already growing in behind it, not under it, behind it.

The very next night Corban lost his second tooth. I think the Tooth Fairy was confused, and maybe thought it was a duplicate work order she received, because she forgot to show up the second night! But, we emailed her, and let her know we understood that losing our first two teeth, two nights in a row, would obviously be confusing to her, and that it would still be waiting the following night. Thanks goodness she was able to make it by then!
Two days after Corban's 2nd tooth loss, Nathan runs into my office holding his tooth, he pulled it out himself. That's very much like him! He chose to sleep in Brooklyn's room that night and the tooth fairy had the hardest time finding his tooth amidst all the blankets and pillows strewn everywhere, but good thing she's a fairy and can look in all those hard to see places, she finally found it! I think she took out a loan just for our house this week!
