While ice skating, we all commented on how warm and sunny it felt. Sitting in the snow by the side of the outdoor rink, I said it felt like a day at the beach.
“It’s like the beach on Hoth,” says Violet.
After ice skating, we’re all exhausted and hungry. Cranky 6yo can’t quite get her spirits back up. After getting her lunch, she says, “I’m more crestfallen than ever.”
Bible scholar alert:
We brought sushi to co-op the other day, and the girls asked about sharing with a particular friend. I say, “Well, that’s why we bring food, to share with everyone.” I correct myself and say that we can’t share with everyone.
“Not unless Jesus comes and blesses it,” says Victoria. Later she says, “Cuz it’s fish, get it?”
[do your kids say that all the time? make a joke and then say “get it? get it?”]
One of Victoria’s old babysitters still talks about her sighing and saying, “Well, the poor will always be with us.”
