Clara's tooth had been loose for a while. It rattled me. I lost my teeth in the second grade and I thought that Clara's would follow suit. I keep thinking she is too young. But here she is with a hole in her grin. I was so glad when she came to me and asked me to pull it out. I was glad to share in the expiriance with her and photograph it.
Her words "that it felt like a fist in my mouth but now that it is out it is so tiny" She was excited to tell Dad and Grandma and really anybody she talked to!
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
