Crazy 8

Today is my son's 8th birthday. We invited his friends (and his cousin) to join us at the Jardin D'Acclimatation. We fit 8 people into my car, but everyone behaved because they all wanted to go to the Jardin for the day.

For his birthday present, he has been asking for a junior set of golf clubs. So today he picked out a set that the golf school sold. The school held a golf "test" today and my son was graded on all the skills... putting, driving etc . He was thrilled to used his new clubs for the test.

My son and his best friend got a silver golf ball pin. Since he earned a bronze ball pin last year, he was happy. Maybe they have these kinds of grades in the US, but it seems a little weird to be grading 6, 7, or 8 year olds on their golf swing.

After going on many rides and meeting my son after he was finished with the golf test, we all piled into the car again and headed home. The kids were playing around after dinner and all of the sudden, my son comes running into the room.... he's lost a tooth! This tooth was literally sticking out of his mouth, ready to come out, but hanging on for the last month. We were so glad to see it out. My son asked if... after hanging out with friends, getting his silver ball pin and having his tooth fall out... "is this my lucky day?" Yes, I suppose it is.
