Last week Banning lost one of his baby molars & then on Friday Reagan pulled out one of her loose teeth with the help of her teachers advice πŸ™‚ Then yesterday Bethaina wakes up from her nap with a really loose tooth & isn’t quite sure if that is okay…At first I wonder if she hit her mouth on something or fell out of bed but then realize that she will be 5 years old this week…so it is normal for her & her time for loose teeth.

It was funny because her sister Kathina napped with Bethaina & Kathina told me that Bethainas tooth broke while she was sleeping!

Anyway, it was Bethaina’s first loose tooth. We were going to let it hang longer but she kept playing with it until it was hanging by a thread & then she didn’t like eating dinner with it so loose. She finally asked Sean to pull it out. He used the “no hurt” dental floss method; famous method in our family… It popped right out & she made a gross face when she first saw the tooth! But she was thrilled!

That night when Bethaina was saying her prayers she thanked Jesus for giving her “a Daddy to help her pull her tooth out”. That kid is so appreciative all on her own..she reminds us of Chloe when Chloe was little.

The second week of school for QCS is starting today. Sean is very busy with his work & the computer lab & I am helping the elementary grades part time by being an aid for Pre K, Kindergarten, 2nd grade & 5th grade so far & also teaching PE to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd graders…

We praise God for a strong start this year at QCS!

On another note, our skies are darkening as clouds cover them yet the air is still calm…we are watching & preparing for Tropical Storm Gustav as it grows & gets closer to Haiti. We’ll likely loose internet service but we will update as soon as we can.

Bethaina being brave as Sean gets the floss around her loose tooth!
