A new smile...

It came out a little earlier than expected. It was yanked it out with a blanket that Marisa was pulling out of Elena's mouth. She didn't cry too much and said she did it on purpose because she wanted to lose a tooth. She has lost another one since.

Labor day

Elena didn't have school for labor day but Marisa did. While Marisa was at MDO, we decided to join Omar on the driving range. He and Elena are quite a pair. She insisted on wearing a visor like him. They have an amazing relationship and he is definitely her favorite. I'm okay with that. I think it's so sweet. While they played, Karina and I sat on the sidelines and snacked. It was a nice day but very breezy and we were trying to stay under the porch.

Date night

Over the summer our church offered a "Ten Great Dates" session and book study. We dropped off the kids at the church nursery, watched a short video and then were free to go on our date for a few hours. We looked forward to this every Sunday evening especially because we didn't have to worry about childcare or planning for a babysitter since it was provided by the church. We can't wait to sign up for it next summer. We captured only one photo but made great memories and learned a lot.
