Sam was dancing the chicken dance and having a blast. If the video doesn’t play, you can download the MP4 file here (right click,Save As) and then play it on your computer…
So, today at school, both kids had professions of affection said to them.
Lizzy… ”Matt said he was my boyfriend.” Lizzy indicated that Jacob, Ryan and Matt could be boyfriends when she grows up.
Sam… Madeline said “Remember when we were in kindergarten and I had a crush on you? Well, I still do.”
Ahh, elementary school… I’m helping out in Lizzy’s class on Tuesday. I’m going to question the boys’ intentions. Find out their future plans. =D
Lizzy’s first day of preschool and Sam’s second day of first grade. They are growing up so fast!
After lots of practice and coaching, Sam is finally riding his bike without training wheels! He’s so happy and proud of himself. It’s really cool to see him cruising around the yard on his bike. Once he graduates from the littler bike, he’ll move up to the bigger BMX bike that he really wants to ride.
Here are few photos from Sam’s last baseball game from late June, 2012. It was a coach pitch league and we were really excited to see Sam hit the ball and run the bases. It’s amazing how much he improved as the season went on.
Sam lost his first tooth today. Mark it down,
July 15, 2012 July 17, 2012. We can’t find the tooth, though we have it narrowed down that he lost it between the time when he brushed his teeth in the morning (Jen remembers not seeing a gap in the teeth) and when we went on a bike ride at around 1:00pm.
He wrote a nice letter to the tooth fairy explaining that he can’t find his tooth and is hoping that she still is able to visit him and bring a little gift to him.
EDIT: Jen inspected Sam’s mouth closer and it turns out that he DIDN’T lose a tooth on July 15, 2012. He has an ‘adult’ tooth coming in and it pushed the loose one over and made it look like he lost it. The new photos are posted with the actual missing tooth. Tooth is snug under Sam’s pillow awaiting a visit from the tooth fairy.
Lizzy wanted to be in the photo, she is so proud of her big brother.
