It finally happened- Brenna lost her first tooth Thursday night. I have heard daily reports on how many teeth her friends had lost since school started. She was convinced this childhood milestone was going to pass her by. Oh the impatience of being only 6 years old LOL Here she is in all of her toothless glory. She has a tiny lisp now that is very cute :)
journaling: It finally happened- Brenna lost her first tooth! Her right lower incisor was loose for months and she was convinced that it would never come out. Like most things, it just needed a bit of patience. She was eating an apple at the time it finally came out. She had already figured out that the Tooth Fairy isn’t real, but we went ahead and put the tooth in Mama’s toothfairy pillow and played the parts anyway, just for fun. ~September 17, 2009

journaling: It’s been 6 years now, and Brenna is still attached to her Bear blanket. In fact, she now has two that are important bed time companions. She can go without them, but will still often ask me to go find them for her when it is time to turn out the lights. They stay home most of the time as Brenna understands that she lost her first bear on vacation and she doesn’t want to lose them.

Going back in time just a bit to scrap the pictures I had of the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia on our vacation in July 2006.
description: The Franklin Institute is one of our favorite science museums. Exploring the Giant Heart, sky bike, interactive exhibits on the history of electricity, and transportation offer hours of fun and learning. Of course there is an exhibit on Benjamin Franklin's role in many of the inventions that play important roles in our lives today plays.

journaling: It took us three tries to finally get the pink bunny ears that the Pink Crew were handing out, as they were very popular. The Hot Hare balloon was one of our favorites this year- he was just so big and so pink!
