As I was saying good night to Shecklet #1, he said to me:
“Mom, did you know bats have thumbs? It’s true. I read about it in the strange facts book.”
I learned something new tonight.
The boys did a skiing version of this in the backyard of our old house. Today, the youngest practiced her “hit it” for next summer at the lake. (Click the square to the right of the video’s blue audio control to get the full view.)
One of these days I hope to get a photo of this dog with the crayon in his mouth. He is a connoisseur of writing utensils. Pencils, crayons, colored pencils – he has gathered them all and then slowly and quietly makes his way to his bed in the laundry room. I found five crayons there just last night.
We had an opportunity to ride a few elevators, (or as #4 calls them,”elegators”) during our trip to STL. 🙂 Fast ones, slow ones, business ones and one in a house!
On our way back to the Sisters’ residence, we stopped at a grocery store for breakfast groceries. I said we were shopping at a local store and supporting “the little guy” instead of the big box store. #4 chimed in saying “support the little girl!”
Nana stopped over today and delivered some tasty treats, milk, and spaghetti sauce that Papa had made. She came from BSF and was heading to an exercise appointment, so she made a wardrobe change before leaving our house. When she reappeared from the bathroom, Shecklet #3 immediately noticed that they matched!
