Growing pains

Well, I am not sure exactly how painful it has been for them (except for a little in the gums) but my kids have definitely been doing some growing lately.  Sara lost her last baby tooth this last week.  It was one of those bittersweet moments for me.  It wasn't for her.  She was really pumped about it. Nathan lost his first top tooth last night.  He just looks so darn cute without that top tooth.  And the girls had a big moment...I let them go by themselves on their first shopping trip.  They have been doing a lot of cooking and baking this summer.  Sara needed an additional ingredient for one of her recipes.  So I decided they were ready to take the plunge and they rode their bikes by themselves to the local grocery and got what they needed.  It was a pretty great feeling for them and for me!

This picture has nothing to do with my post, but had to share the kids enjoying a long awaited summer rain.  Unfortunately, it only did this for about 5 minutes....sprinkles for the rest of the day.  Praying for more rain...
