Another Milestone: Tooth Fairy Time

Amaya lost her first tooth this morning.  Courtesy of mom, but still.  It has been loose for awhile now.  This morning she woke up and came and showed me that it could bend out horizontally.  Finally, loose enough to come out.  I tied some dental floss around said tooth, and a quick tug later we were doing the customary pictures.  Yes, this just happened today, June 12th.  Yes, we know it is not football season.  I had PT this morning and one of my physical therapists is a huge Green Bay fan.  Amaya wanted to wear her Packer earrings and cheerleading outfit for him.  They enjoy doing Clay Matthews and Aaron Rodgers impressions together. 

Pretty smile still, missing tooth and all.

Her "new" tooth was already coming up behind her baby tooth.  So it is well on it's way already.

Showing off her new look.

If you look closely you can see that Amaya is holding her lost tooth dangling from the dental floss.

Checking out her tooth.  She is quite excited for the Tooth Fairy to come. 

Our friend, the Chernetid, wanted to be a part of the celebration this morning.  We noticed him in Amaya's sink as we were taking pictures.  Cute little bugger, huh?

Kindergarten Graduation


Our Beautiful Kindergarten Graduate
The program opened up with a wonderful, touching slide show.

Principal Weyenberg Spoke

In come the approximately 150 graduates.

Glowing with pride.  Love seeing her so happy.

Amaya's class is the 24 students on the left side of the risers on the stage.

Program time.  All the kids put on a fabulous show.  Sweet.  Cute.  Funny.  Touching.

So glad I went early enough that I was able to save seats in the first row.  We were able to shoot a great video of the program.

Certificate time.  It's official.

Amaya and her two best friends, or "sissies" as they call each other.  If you introduce them as friends they correct you and say they are sisters.

Amaya and Miss George, the best Kindergarten teacher ever.
