First Lost Tooth

This boy has been my baby for a long time.
When your baby teeth start to fall out, you aren't a baby anymore.
He is hopeful that a baby will come to our family and is constant in his desire.
Yesterday he announced that he had a loose tooth.
He had the goal to lose the tooth at school.
The teacher gives out a treasure box to keep your tooth safe.
He really wanted one of the boxes.

But near the end of the day, the tooth hadn't come out.
With some help (a.k.a. I pushed it), his tooth came out, and he got his box.
He was thrilled.

Find Peace

In our lives we will have temptations; we will have trials and challenges. As we go to the temple, as we remember the covenants we make there, we will be better able to overcome those temptations and to bear our trials. In the temple we can find peace.
~ Thomas S. Monson

Bake Sale and Lemonade Stand

The day of the Lemonade Stand came.
We set up the shade tent and table 
then came to set up a sign to let people know where we were.

We wanted to make sure we covered our bases 
with lemonade stand on one side and bake sale on the other side.

Both boys helped the people who came.
They were personable.
If someone offered a tip,
Hurricane would sing them a song.

After the stand, we cleaned up, made a few deliveries, and 
opened a bank account with the proceeds.
They were excited to started the account.

The boys wanted to thank everyone for their support.
They are hopeful for the prospect of a baby.

Caramel Syrup

We bottled 42 pints of caramel syrup for Hurricane's Bake Sale.
He prepared for pre-orders before the bake sale.
All of the syrups were spoken for by people.
We will make more.
