Carter lost a front tooth.
All of us tried to help him pull it out over the past several days. Carter even gave Luke a chance. Luke pulled and pulled. Carter checked to see about the work that Luke had done and the tooth fell out!

He looks different without that tooth.

Of course, he wanted to get it ready for the tooth fairy; found a bag and wrote a note to the tooth fairy "toothfairy I will give my tooth to you".

The Fair in Lucketts

We visited a town close by for the annual Lucketts fair. We could not pass up the pony rides, animals, treats and more. Carter was brave and tried the rock climbing wall while Luke was on the moon bounce. They both tried the dunk tank and got extremely close.

Yet another camp

Carter and Luke went to another football camp. Actually Carter signed up and then the coaches invited Luke to join in the fun. The camp was for 5-10 year olds and Luke wasn't quite old enough but they let him come. Carter and Luke were some youngest kids there but it did not seem to bother them too much.

The last day game, Carter ran for one touch down and caught one for another touchdown.
He was so excited that when I arrived for pick-up he shouted from across the field!

Luke was right in there with the big guys, seemingly unaware that he was the little guy. He loved every minute of it. He wanted to run the ball every time.

Flag Camp

Carter had yet another sports camp this week.

He loves every second of it. This week it was flag football. He was one of the youngest at the camp and did not seem intimidated by it and kept up with the big boys.

The last day the coaches let Luke come in and play to even out the teams. He was so excited he could barely stand it. He was not happy Carter had football camp because he has been wanting to play so the chance to get in at Carter's camp...well he has not stopped grinning. He was right in there with all the elementary school boys; High fiving them, telling them to pass it to him and more.

Just call him a fish

This summer was big for Luke in the pool.
He can swim but he wouldn't tell you that. One day at the pool Carter was diving down for some toys and Luke wanted in on the action. Luke swam right down and scooped up the toys. I exclaimed "You can swim!" He said, "No, I can't." After many times to the pool, he got better and better. Just this past week he finished his lessons and will now admit that he can swim.

Loudoun Fair

Last night we headed out to the Loudoun County Fair. We met up with Jeremy's parents and Jeremy's brother and his family. The kids loved and had a wonderful time together. Each year they get braver and braver with the animals and the rides. Luke and Carter said they loved the slide but you have to look at the picture...I am not sure they really did. Luke was fascinated with the animal auction. He sat incredibly still and soaked it in. Brayden got in on the action to, check out the blog.
