We have 20 more days of school from now till Jan 13th. Seriously! That’s a LOT of days off. Which will be fun, and exciting, and a bit busy as we try to balance having fun with getting work done. So I’m thinking this is my last chance to update this week, and next week we will be full of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah pictures. Already.
So this week we had a field trip at a farm, and also we had visited Descanso Gardens last weekend and I forgot to update pics. So they’re here. Also, couple of funny kid stories:
Molly was mad at Jacob for something, and she stormed past me yelling, “Jacob is a dreadful, dreadful boy.” My drama queen. (Who now vacillates between wanting to be a scientist and an actress.) And last night she didn’t want to go to bed, and she was snuggling on our bed with Chuck, and Jacob came in and snuggled on their other side, and I was trying to get some work done, and Molly said, “Oh, mummy, won’t you come join in the family snuggle?” And of course I did, and I said, “You have us wound around your little finger, don’t you?” And the little minx beamed up at me and said, “I always have a plan.”
Jacob (who is convinced he is the next Puig, still – we spent the afternoon playing baseball together…) is obsessed with World War II, and we’ve been talking a lot lately about democracy versus monarchy and revolutions and the notion of due process and innocent before proven guilty (I know, weird). So we were talking about how you get one phone call and I jokingly asked them who they’d call. Jacob said, right away, “Grandpa!”. And I said, “Not me?” and he said “No, Grandpa is much stronger.” I’m still not sure if he thinks that phone call is to call someone to physically break you out of jail…And pictures:Pumpkins at Descanso.
