Zach and the green screen...
Sissy reporting on the weather...probably going to be a little wet! :)

Hanging in the VIP "Green Room" with Brad...
Getting to sit in the actual chairs on the set...
Seriously, does Zach look like a natural, or what?!?

Today was the second annual Little Feet Meet sponsored by the Special Olympics Virginia. It was a beautiful day, and just like last year, the events of the day make me feel so proud and honored to be Alex's mom. Alex participated in a wheel chair race and a tennis ball toss. The morning started out rough for her, but by the end of the day she was as happy as could be and enjoyed all of the excitement. It was an awesome day of seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
A special thank you to Alex's teacher, Miss Lesley, her nurse Audretta, her classrom aides, Mrs. Susan and Miss Ann, the 5th grade helpers, Jennifer and her fiance Brad and all of the students from Freeman High School who volunteered for making the day so special.
Here's a video from our day...

but then it started bleeding, he freaked out and that was the end of that! I did manage to get him to smile one more time and told him it would probably be his last picture with all of his teeth...and it was!
It finally fell out today at school. At first I was a little disappointed that it happened at school (ridiculous, I know!), but they made a big deal about it...he got a "tooth certificate" from his teacher and when they sent him to the clinic he got a little tooth box to put his tooth in and got a sticker to wear that said "I Lost A Tooth Today". He was so excited and felt pretty special.
Last night we made a really cool tooth pillow so the Tooth Fairy would know exactly where his tooth was...and if I do say so myself, I think it turned out cute!
Putting his tooth into his pillow for safe keeping....
Yes, I guess it's obvious that losing the first tooth has been a pretty big deal!

We had an awesome time this past weekend with lots of friends. Sunday we were at a bb-q with our neighbors and I shot this picture of her that I just love.
Zach is doing great - he started Taekwondo lessons on Monday and is loving it. He starts an art class this afternoon as well so he's keeping real busy. The big news is that we are days away from losing our first tooth! He is so excited he can barely stand it! Last night while we were eating dinner he said, "Look, Mom!" and he had his tooth laying completely down. Ick!
There's more to update on, so hopefully it wont take me another week to blog!

My mother-in-law flew in from Niagara Falls and stayed with the kids for the week and did amazing job keeping everything organized and running the kids to all the places they needed to be. Despite missing us, the kids did great. My parents came over to visit during the week and stayed Saturday and Sunday and Alex got her Papa fix. I've said it before, but it's so great having such a supportive family and one that actually pushes us to get away and recharge our batteries.
