Relaxing in the hammock with my Boy


By Friday of Labor Day, we are camping. During an art project I brought, Gavin dips his hair in blue.

Blue Dip


Next night, starting in on an ear of corn, the boy’s tooth is knocked all the way loose.

Amazing it hung on all summer.



He twists it out and rebounds like a champ.

Then biting into campfire s’mores later that same night (the chocolate especially hard due to our refrigeration using dry-ice), he loses ANOTHER tooth.

Time to brush what remains. 


Next day, he’s ready for a haircut.  He had this message for his Bubble Wow:
