One couple from our small group graduated from Texas A&M, so the kids found his big boots Saturday night and tried walking around the house.

What a week! Miriam has been wiggling her first loose tooth for a long time, so we've been preparing for it. I made a little pillow for her to put her tooth in and put under her pillow in bed for the tooth fairy, and we were having fun teasing her about pulling it for her. Well, Sunday we were at a going away party for some friends and Miriam fixed a little plate of snacks (grapes, cookies, and a couple strawberries). When we all got in the van she exclaimed to us that she couldn't feel anything with her tongue. Sure enough, while she was eating she swallowed her tooth. She was a little disappointed that she couldn't show it to everyone, but had fun telling all where her lost tooth now was. Last night the tooth fairy must have known that she lost a tooth, but couldn't put it in her pillow because she still left her 100 forint (=.50). She's excited to use this for a ride at the grocery store or for a special treat the next time we go shopping. Zach asked where his 100 ft was, so I explained it was only when you lost a tooth, and he proceeded to show me where he had lost many teeth from the back of his mouth. Very funny!
