"There were so many naked people, really, just naked people, everywhere." - Tristan's take on the fine arts museum field trip.
"I got to pet a giraffe and he licked me and I got to feed flamingo #37, he was the biggest one you know." - Tristan's commentary to Todd on the Busch Gardens field trip. Clearly the winner here.
"Double, double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble," said Tori who played a witch and a murderer in her class production of Macbeth. I know that Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's tragedies but as performed by shy and gangly 6th graders I believe it leaned more towards the side of comedy.
The kids furry cousins came to stay with us for a long weekend while there "parents" went to New Orleans to
drink sightsee. They are well behaved and Tristan had a blast with them. They're only real downfall is the enormous amount of space they take up on my bed.
Baseball...softball...more baseball...more softball...etc.
Aunt Laurie (Hi!) gave Tori the Hunger Games books for Christmas...and if you have not read them, well you should. Immediately. Fantastic story with a fantastic underlying message. And in case you live in a hole with no outside contact and don't know, the movie came out this past week. And it was fabulous too. So we made it a girls day...Tori and I as well as her friend Savannah and her mom. Fun!
Spring break without a trip to the beach would be ridiculous. So of course we had to go! And it was BEAUTIFUL. I mean perfect weather, exact right amount of wind, soft sand, great company, absolutely beautiful afternoon at the beach.
Spring break is coming to a close but we are cramming stuff in. Fun weekend ahead!!
