Olivia lost her first tooth and is starting Kindergarten in July!!

Olivia lost her first tooth last Monday!! It happened in the parking lot after Jason's well visit while I was in the back seat nursing him. Olivia refused to let me pull it even though it was hanging by a thread, so we could see her permanent tooth coming in before she lost the baby one! It finally came out when she was eating a fruit snack! Ha!

The tooth fairy came that night after the cousins arrived, and left a dollar coin and fairy dust in Olivia's tooth fairy pillow, which she left hanging outside her bedroom door. Goodbye to that sweet baby tooth that but me so much as it was coming in!

And we made a decision about where Olivia will go to school! We debated between the traditional calendar option, which is fifteen minutes away and operates from 9:15-3:45 and the year-round option which we can walk to and operates 7:40-2:20. When we found out Olivia is assigned to Track One, which is off for three weeks in June, September, December, and March, and on for nine weeks at a time between, we decided to go with the neighborhood school. (Both are rated as a nine in, and both seemed good on our visits.) The neighborhood school had a festival Thursday night called Walleypalooza, and it got Olivia pumped about going there starting July 7!

Doing on of the games/activities: This picture sums up our sweet girl--nervous, excited, and willing to try new things! I can't believe it's time for her to start Kindergarten!!


  1. Yay for a school in walking distance. I always dreamed about that when we had to ride the bus! What a sweet and adventurous little girl!

  2. I can't believe she's starting kindergarten! And she looks more like you every day! So pretty!
