gong show

while luca's losing teeth, true is getting his braces off!  gone is the cute brace face, replaced by his cute smile.  we have three years of no braces....then he gets them back on when all of his teeth have come in.  that bit of news didn't disappoint true, he loves having braces.
true gets to bang the gong since his braces were removed

because true is exceptionally polite, he tapped the gong, then they encouraged him to smack it hard.he did.

tooth #5

luca woke up and declared, "my tooth will come out today".  and...it did.  like, 10 minutes later.

mud fest

our latest racing expedition came with mud. lots of mud.  lots of mud.  lots of mud and rain.  and man, did we have fun.  true had a break out race...and is starting to climb in the ranks.  he made a top ten finish this week and he's pretty happy with that.  he's decided he races best in mud and he's grasping the idea of really competing-  not letting somebody else get by and working hard to catch the rider in front.  and luca, of course, is always a crowd favorite with his look of determination,which quickly changes to a big smile whenever somebody calls his name from the sides of the course.  the mini-rubi racers are referred to by cx fans as "the clones".

david and true chase each other while racing
this mud does not wash out easily!
luca and gus, post race.  it was freezing out, but both insisted they were warm in short sleeves
