happy- an old photo from St valentine's Day. The big girls always make us a balcony dinner because I teach evenings. Now that it is Lent, my mouth is watering looking at the cheese and meat plate!
funny- My parents visited us to see the big girls in Two Gentlemen of Verona and husband and I in the adult class playing some scenes from Much Ado About Nothing. My mother treated the girls to a blended drink with some coffee in the big (14 & 13) girls' drink! This is the same mom who cried when she saw my older sister drink some coffee when she was 18 years old! Times have changed, haven't they? (yes- baby girl has a sometimes lazy eye...advice?)
real- Boy has been taking some Lego 'engineering' classes courtesy of our public charter homeschooling program. He was very excited to show his friends and teacher the William Shakespeare Lego mini-fig (I know all the lingo now) he received from his grandparents for his 7th birthday. One of the parents, watching Boy's enthusiasm for Shakespeare, said "he is an interesting boy." What does that mean? I don't want to dampen his love for atypical activities or his natural exuberance. Somehow, I am raising very social, empathetic, creative and extroverted children. I felt bad that Boy is already weird- even among homeschoolers.
