I have no idea how many people read this blog, mostly just family and a few friends I think. I haven't been faithful to the "daily" blog anymore, but I'm doing my best. I'll go back to "daily" as soon as school is out for the summer, I promise:) Please feel free to write a quick comment in the comment section once in a while so I know you are would probably encourage me to write more often. And I will share the comments with the kids, if appropriate. Thanks!

Of girls and pets...

Lucy has been asking for a pet for a long time...and she specifically wants a fish. We have pushed the pet issue off until the summer, since this year is way too busy to add anything else to the picture. Anything else that requires attention, that is. And thought of any kind. So, the topic comes up every few weeks but conversation about a pet never lasts long.

Until tonight. Somehow Jane was thinking about pets, and picked out the perfect pet- a hamster. But then she reconsidered and decided a family of hamsters would be better. Babies, a brother, a sister, and a mama and papa. We would have to have a cup of water in their "tank", she said. So they could drink whenever they were thirsty. And then her thinking went off on a strange tangent..."And when we get the family of hamsters, don't let the babies come out...When she (the mother) gets married, then they can come out."

This is for you, Aunt Emily!

Emily, for some reason I remember all the interesting outfits you used to put together when you were little. Now, you have gotten more sophisticated in your clothing choices, of course. But I think some of your genes have passed down to Jane and Lucy...these were the play clothes they chose today:

It's a SNOW DAY for us!!! Like much of the rest of the country, it sounds like. I won't be the only blog posting those words today:)
