Joseph is hoping to have his first tooth out by then since his cousin Ginna pulled her first tooth out this past week. (Fortunately, he does have one ready to come out--otherwise I think he'd try to pull one anyway.)
We are also down to the wire with choosing a curriculum for next year. Daily I go back and forth between Veritas and Sonlight.
