The 1st tooth fell out! Oh my- this was quite exciting for Jacob...he was literaly extatic!
Saddly their are no cute little gaps because his big teeth already pushed through (he had 2 sets of teeth in 2 different spots...it looks so weird) the good news is that next week the dentist will only have to pull 3 teeth instead of 4!

These happy pics were taken Before our dentist visit today...Jacob had the appointment but the little ones came out in hysterics...Im still cooling down from this...ya see the little ones sat so good and played so queitely in the tiny room durring Jacob's 35 minute cleaning- when it was over the secretary called Jacob over to the 'prize box.' The little ones ran over with him and the box was harshly pulled away from them and the lady said 'oh no- these are just for kids who saw the dentist!" Caleb immediatly ran to me in tears (more from the scold from the stranger than from the lack of toy) but Sova waited w/ Jacob for the box to be shown again and dove her hand in... the woman then grabbed the toy out of her hand and again made her statement. Sova burst into tears and I had to make the followup appt. w/ 2 crying kids. We walked out and the hyterics grew louder and louder as the injustice of it all settled into them as we drove away.
I saw how hurt they really were...these were not selfish tears of 'I want I want" but they knew that that waited patiently and were expecting the prize box because they were there before. So really... what was that lady thinking! The prizes were litteraly stickers and small peices of knick knacky junk...If I work up the courage Im going to bring a bag of dollar store items to the lady next week at our appt. and ask her if I can donate it to her precious prize box, for all the sibblings of the patient, who have to suffer through sitting their patient, quiet and bored!
Sorry for the rant...
The (Kind of) Finished Chicken Coop
Horray, while I was away enjoying a homeschool conference in Mass this weekend- Mike surprised me with the finished coop :) I say 'kind of finished' because I want the kids to paint it (with their handprints)
I think I have found my perfect pet! Everyone knows Im not an 'animal person' therefore may have caused some concern as to why I would get chickens but so far they have lived up to my google research :) They are easy and it's just plain fun to say, 'kids lets go feed the chickens and get the eggs.' If you catch me w/ a hankie in my hair and wearing an apron you have permission to intervene ;)

I can't believe the lady at the dentist! Poor Caleb & Sova, that was really unfair of her. I bet she is childless!
