Oh my goodness, friends. This loss of the first tooth for E happened PERFECTLY! The whole event (the loss, and the tooth fairy visit) was all so within her personality! I couldn’t have planned it better if I had tried!! It was SO sweet! Two weeks ago, E noticed her tooth was wiggley and so promptly … More A Tooth Fairy Story
When Easter came, Adam was off island doing an inspection and it rained that day. So we spent the morning going through our easter baskets and hiding and hunting for eggs. I fill them with Fruit Loops and Teddy Grahams to keep it a bit healthier, but still fun and new (they NEVER get sweetened … More Easter egg hunting in the house

Fun things have been happening at the Goddard house this fall! Every day seems like an adventure when you live abroad anyway so these might seem small, but they are fun to us! Potty training happened this October and really only took a few days for Little E to understand.
