what's missing from this picture???

Andy's tooth!!!

Andy lost his first tooth this week--on Thursday. I was a little sad, but he was SOOOOO excited. The tooth fairy visited that night and left him a crisp dollar bill!

Andy has started playing basketball. He loves it. I mean, he gets to see his best friend at practice and games, lots of people who love him come and cheer him on, and he LOVES yellow Gatorade. So, it's not so much the game that he loves, but the social aspect of it. I think he got that from me. And Deneise.

Every time he sees someone taking his picture, he stops and smiles. Seriously. Luckily, his coach is one of the most patient people ever. I don't think I could coach a group of 5-year-olds in a sport they've never played. But I DO LOVE watching me some 5-year-old b-ball. It is the best way to spend a Saturday morning. Even if the games are at 8 AM!!!

Ben: Momma AND Daddy are rulers at this house, right???
Kevin: Yeah, but I overrule momma.
Ben: Well, there's only one ruler at Nana and Poppy's house.
Kevin: Who's that?
Ben: Nana.
Kevin: (laughing) I can't wait to tell Poppy that.
Ben: (very serious)He already knows.
