The outside temperature in my van read 108 degrees when I went to pick Falyn up from preschool at 12:30 pm today. It was crazy hot! In many places in Southern California it was the hottest day ever since they started keeping records. It was so hot that the AYSO ordered all soccer practices canceled for the day. It’s days like these that make me very glad we have an the A/C. I’ve had it running all day. It is supposed to stay hot the rest of the week, but isn’t supposed to climb back up into triple digits.
Jared was clearing the table while Talia was putting dishes into the dishwasher when a plate Talia was putting in the dishwasher collided with Jared mouth while he was putting a glass on the counter. He mouth was all bloody and when I looked at it his tooth fell out into my hand. It has been loose for a while and would have fallen out on it’s own soon. This makes the third sibling to have knocked a baby tooth out of Jared’s mouth, with Aidan and Riley being the other two culprits.
I love this picture Jared drew at school. It depicts God adding color to the world during creation. I love how he showed God adding brown to the tree trunk, yellow to the sun and flowers, blue to the sky and green to the trees and grass. I thought it was so creative and had to scan it so save forever.
In the middle of all the drama with the truck in the ditch yesterday, I had to take Aidan to his first cotillion of the year. I rushed out and didn’t bring a camera with me. Luckily one of my friends did and captured the picture above. (Thanks CeCe!) Aidan asked Kelsey to dance with him for the game. Last year Aidan and Kelsey won first place at this very same game. The game involves spinning a huge coke bottle and if it points to you, you are out. I was amazed that they made it all the way to second place this year, winning big bags of M&Ms. Aidan told me that he would rather have the M&Ms than the first place prizes and was thrilled to have won them.
Kayli fell on her elbow last night at soccer practice. She can barely move it and says it hurts a lot. We spent today taking her to the doctor and getting x-rays. Luckily it isn’t broken, just a bad sprain. She has a sling to wear till it is better and she can’t play soccer till it stops hurting.
We were backing out of the driveway to go to Falyn’s soccer game today when Riley says, “My tooth came out!”. I drove back up the driveway and Riley handed me his tooth. He was also bleeding, so I ran inside and got him some ice to put on it. I put the tooth in a ziplock, stuck it on the bulletin board so we didn’t loose it and ran back to the car so we could leave. We arrived a bit later than I wanted, but made it there before the game was scheduled to start. There is never a dull moment around my house!
Today was Falyn’s first day of preppy K. This will be her last year of preschool. I can’t believe she will be in kindergarten next year! She has been asking me daily for weeks if she gets to go to school today. She was so excited she finally got to go back to school. She loves school so much.
She had a huge smile all morning.
She could not wait to wear her new shoes.
