Lazy weekends at the Pool

We are very fortunate at The Emerald compound to have several swimming pools to choose from.  The outdoor pool is open from beginning of June to mid September.  If you ask the kids what they want to do at the weekend, they will always say “Pool please!”  They both love swimming and the pool is the place to be at the weekend – lots of friends to play with, lots of adults to socialize with!  We ride our bikes from our house to the pool, laden down with water toys, drinks and snacks!

The Tooth Fairy (visit number 4)

The Tooth Fairy visited our house again last night.  It is visit number 4 for Isabelle who has now lost all of her front teeth!!  Last night at dinner, the very wobbly one on the bottom came out when she was eating.  It has been threatening to come out for days and Owen has had great fun in getting the pliers out and pretending to pull it out for her – much to her disgust! 

There is a perfect gap for her tongue to peek through, which it often does now, especially when she is smiling.  The School Photographer nick-named her Lizabelle because she kept poking her tongue out!  Thankfully, the first bottom to fall out now has 1/2 a big one grown and the top 2 have started to grow too.
