We've been reading books and talking about the Tooth Fairy in order to be prepared.
I arrived at preschool to pick up the boys and Jason ran up to me excited and breathless, eager to tell me and show me all about his tooth.
He was brave about the whole thing and very excited. You can see here that he's giving his best grin in these 2 pictures.
Later that night, the Tooth Fairy visited and left an envelope under Jason's pillow. In the morning, I asked Jason if the Tooth Fairy had visited. He ran into his room and looked under the pillow and exclaimed, 'She left me a message!"
Jason tore open the envelope and discovered some stickers and a dollar bill. He has carried the stickers and the dollar bill around the house ever since.

On Saturdays we will frequently have in-house concerts. Jason likes to set up his drum kit and will also play my keyboards. Kevin likes to play a variety of instruments ranging from a train whistle to a kazoo to a harmonica. He also likes to play Joe's violin while Jason likes Joe's 6 string guitar.
What motivates them to be so good for something they dislike so much? Check out the huge green race car lollipop in Kevin's hand. Now THAT is motivation.

Kevin ran to me and jumped up into my arms when I arrived to take them home. Jason ran over and then ran back to play a bit more before leaving. They had a snack of chocoloate Cheerios and Scooby Doo gummy snacks in the car. Jason asked if there was anything else to eat in the car. Aside from the stale Cheerios on the floor mats, nope.
They both said they had a great day and played with lots of kids. They learned a new song about a hot dog sizzling in a pan which Kevin sang to me while our corn muffins baked. Cute song. Yummy muffins.

Sometimes the boys work together. Sometimes it's sweet and dear like when one boy brings Fred or Chewy to his brother when he's hurt. Or when one boy hugs the other to cheer him up or gives him hand. And, then there are times like this. Going nowhere and leading to nothing but still pretty funny if you are there to witness it.
When the boys watch The Octonauts, during the intro when the Octonauts are running through the octopod to get to headquarters, Kevin and Jason jump up and run in place imitating Kwazii and Barnacles. Joe managed to capture that here:
