Christmas is pretty far away... I don't think that he'll have to suffer through any embarrassing songs about his teeth. He lost the second tooth from his mouth, carried it in his pocket for hours, and then lost it again somewhere at the White's house- while jumping on the trampoline, climbing on the bunk bed, or playing in the closet. I told him that he could write a note to the Widjiwats about it, but he's not that interested in gaining a reward...strangely.
He looks good though, right?

He looks like his cousin Lucy Joy. She is without her teeth as well. He is handsome indeed and I miss him.

Maybe he's doubting the Widjiwat theory. Funny how they only come to him.
Maybe you could mention the idea of saving money for Christmas gifts.
I remember when he was saving up for a little girl's gift.

Summer in Florida

This is our fourth summer in Florida- a number that amazes me.  I still don't feel at home here, although  I know my way around.  I don't feel completely out of place in the supermarket, but I have this suspicion that everyone knows I'm not from here, and they know that they don't know me.  That special kind of paranoia belongs to the homesick, and even while I acknowledge its foolishness, I still feel it.
Summers- I may have mentioned this before- are the worst. 
     It's partly an issue of comfort, or rather, of discomfort.  The long summer days are hot and sticky, the bugs are ravenous and abundant, the plants are vindictive with thorns and poison, and the air itself is attempting to decompose your body 37% faster than air in dryer climes.*  If there is a spring or pool to soak yourself in, it's fine, pleasant, even, because there are no ticks in the water, and you can usually avoid mosquitoes under the water.  To Florida's credit, there are any nu…
Brother Job texted his sweetheart, although we didn't know it was his sweetheart taking him away from us.

Jack, who is 9, and Miles, who is 7.

This is Jack.  He loves zip-ties and drawing.  He has a best friend named Dan.  He will be 10 in less than a month.  His favorite food is "nutella crepes."  He wants to be an artist.  Or an actor.  He wants to do a lot of different things, all at once. 

 This is Miles.  He is 7- he will be eight in July.  He likes lots of things in general and not so much specifically.  He is a picky eater.  He wants to sleep like a burrito, and never make his bed.  He never has a problem finding a friend to play with on the playground- on any playground.  His best friend is Michael.

These boys seek each other out, and want to play with each other, but at any moment- ANY MOMENT- it might become a violent and loud fight.  What was play one second ago becomes a battle this second.  The worst punishment I can give them is to not let them play with each other.
