THE TOOTHFAIRY CAME!!
Jake's tooth was really wiggly. I asked him if he wanted me to pull it out. He acted really nervous. I told him that when his teeth come out he gets to put them under his pillow and the tooth fairy comes and takes the tooth and leaves money.
Within seconds he was standing in front of me with a piece of floss. I tied a knot and he didn't even flinch when I did the count down and pulled it out.
He is currently trying to save $300 so he can buy a Polaris 4 wheeler (battery operated thing to drive around on). It may seem like an impossible feat at $2 a week for his jobs and saving 10% of whatever he makes for his mission and paying 15% for tithing and fast offerings, but he is determined. He is finding ways to earn money and so far he has saved somewhere around $35.
