Mason was supposed to have an orthodontist appointment next week. I rescheduled because he's lost four big teeth in the last four weeks. This was his newest that fell out Tuesday while eating breakfast. Gone are the days of wiggly teeth for him, now they just seem to fall out.
Molly has had her class animal this week, Peanut the elephant. Peanut is supposed to go everywhere we go and document it. It's a lot to add in our day to keep track of Peanut too! The biggest obstacle is to keep Peanut from Roxie's reach. So far, so good.

Mason went Tuesday morning for cast removal.
Peanut went too!
He was ready! I will be honest, I'm  a little worried. They did x-rats after the cast came off. The small crack in his low thumb is still visible, but the Dr. Said there is new bone growth so it should be ok. He's ok to swim, but nothing else for two weeks.
I took Molly to Meijer for a few items and actually took the time to let her look at the toys. This never happens. I let life slow down for a second and enjoyed her shrieks when she saw something. "Elsa! Anna! Sophia! My Little Pony!"

I enrolled Maya in swim lessons to improve her strokes. She can swim fine, but no real strokes. I did this in anticipation of joining her brothers in summer swim team (hopefully). It ended up a little boy from her kindergarten class is in her small group. They had more fun together bobbing up and down. It was sweet to see him yell, "Maya!" when he realized they were together. If she doesn't gain swim strokes, it's nice to see her bond with a friend.

I snapped this after school. These two are crazy tight but love to drive each other crazy. 

A small story on Mitch from today (Thurs). I guess two boys from our neighborhood were verbally fighting on the bus this morning. Mitchell witnessed the encounter. He's sort of buddies with one of the boys (they swim together but don't hang out). The other boy and Mitch have never been close. If anything, I think the other boy isn't so nice to Mitch. Anyway, I guess Mitch was called out of class by the school counselor as a witness. He was very uncomfortable as both boys were being mean to each other this morning. Ends up, Mitch told the truth and actually stood up for the boy who isn't his friend and isn't always nice to Mitch because Mitch felt like the boy was being bullied. I was so proud that he knew the right thing to do was tell the truth. :)  This kid will barely stop for a picture and is ornery as can be, but I'm so proud of him.  
He ended up getting a Titan Ticket (school reward) for his behavior. Proud of my Mitchie!! I also have to add that he has had an amazing school year so far!
Ticklish girl on top of the laundry pile!
