Last night, Mattias helped knock out Layni's other front tooth; I scrubbed blood out of the carpet. He was very upset this morning to find the tooth fairy hadn't left him anything - he seems to think he deserves to be paid for procuring Layni's tooth for her. Always good times in the Mack-Mitera-Gilman household!
Today was lovely. Jolie and Marty took Layni and Mattias out to Harrison for a day at the lake - they ate ice cream, went swimming and bicycling, and had a wonderful time. Lysa and I (who mind the heat) stayed home, hibernated in the cool basement and enjoyed the peace and quiet. I watched "Love's Abiding Joy," the fourth movie based on Janette Oke's western series, and "National Treasure," which was quite entertaining - and yes, Krista, I loved the sidekick! I also finished "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" and started "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" as well as doing some tidying and organizing. It was a nice, relaxing day - thank You, God!
