Lost a Toof!

Carissa Lost Her First Toof!!   For some reason I have become the official tooth-puller in the family.  Which is really odd because I get queasy just knowing someone is feeling queasy.  The only thing I can attribute me getting the job is the fact that I have smaller fingers then Dad. 

This particular tooth was kind of tricky.  From the outside it appeared to be just hanging there.  I kept thinking it was just going to plop right out.  But when I got ahold of the thing it was a different story.  The tooth was a bleeder - it held on for life and (cringing as I write this) I could feel the gums ripping away.  UGH!!  She was brave though (as usual - didn't cry).  Sometimes I think that is just not normal not to cry when there is pain... kids.
 This week also marked my first ever experience as a "Cheer" mom.  Hmmm.  Not quite how I envisioned the path for my daughters but - who am I to judge?  They worked there tails off for four hours during the week learning high kicks and dance moves.  I was impressed at how much they learned.  Mostly I was impressed that they can walk into a group of 50 girls and be part of something they don't know anything about. Then have the guts to get out and perform in front of a crowd at a High School Basketball game.  

Where did they get there their confidence?

"But blessed is {the Girl} that trusts in the Lord and have made the Lord {her} hope and confidence." ~Jeremiah 17:7
It has been a wonderful week.  I was able to sew a mini table runner and keep up with my work.  I feel accomplished :)

I like the runner! It always feels so great to sneak a little project in between the necessary tasks! I won't tell. :} Miss you TONS and TONS! Lets talk soon!
