At the dentist on Tuesday, Finn compared his teeth to the shark’s teeth.

He was thrilled with his new Captain America toothbrush and the rest of his new dental loot, and he did a backseat show-and-tell all the way to school.

Finn ate corn-on-the-cob for the first time!
May 2018 007
But Thea had a very loose, wiggly front tooth, and could not eat corn on the cob.

Finn couldn’t wait to brush his teeth, with his new dental loot!

Then we walked down to Artsfest, along Riverfront Park.

Thea lost that wiggly front tooth!

Jason arrived and they headed to the water slides. In each of the past couple summers, the lifeguards have told her she’s not quite tall enough to go…
May 2018 024
But, this Summer, she got the nod!

The next morning, we met some good friends for breakfast, and Thea took Jack’s teasing in stride.

May 2018 034
Nana, Auntie Lala and Bill came over to cook out and eat. They put the finishing touches on some incredible Angel Food cupcakes, filled with Coolwhip and pineapple.
May 2018 037
And topped with strawberries.
May 2018 039May 2018 040
Thea was thrilled with her half-dollar take from the Tooth Fairy. She’s reported that John F. Kennedy, Jr. is her favorite president: “I like his hair”.

We went back down to Artsfest, and Thea got a butterfly painted on her check.
May 2018 045

May 2018 047
I asked Finn if he was making a wish on the river, but it turned out he was just trying to blow the cobwebs off the bridge railing.
May 2018 048
Then, we went out to the country and had a nice lunch with Joanne, Nonna and Baba.

    So Happy to see Thea like her new classroom. I’m sure she is going to love it. And glad to see Finn likes his dental package..taking care of his pearly whites. Thank you for sharing. Love, Grandma Deanna
