Join Rebecca's Girl's Club

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Rebecca loves to create things. Her newest invention is her 'Girl's Club', which apparently includes all over her female cousins. Here are some materials she has created (I provide translations below each - her ideas are good but she still needs to work on her spelling. My comments are in italics.):

  1. The Rules

    Girls Club Rules

    1. No Boys Allowed

    2. No Spitting Possibly directed at her little brother

    3. No Teasing

    4. Have Fun

  2. Club Book - She made one for each of her cousins. This one is for her cousin Sophia.

  3. Meeting Schedule

    1. Meeting

    2. Recess

    3. Make a map of your ?

    4. Secret Handshake

    5. And last, just in case you forget ... Go back home

  4. Girl's Club Promise (slightly pilfered from the Girl Scouts)

    I promise to protect girls from boys and to serve god and girls.

So who out there is ready to join up?

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Look out nursery school!

Today was Rebecca's first day of second grade and Gregory's first day of nursery school. Sorry to sound stereotypical, but Greg and I were like the quintessential parents dancing down the Staples' aisle to 'The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year'. By our calculations, we've been home alone in the house together once in the past seven years until today (Greg's on vacation this week). The two of us celebrated with a very nice lunch at the Sole Proprieter.

But enough about us. Both kids got out without a hitch. Gregory declared himself 'excited' for his first day of school, but wanted to know why he couldn't take the school bus. He wasn't sure what he was going to do when he got there, but he thought maybe it would include 'playing pirates'.

Mom, you're embarrassing me

Rebecca loves her new teacher who apparently is 'very useful because she knows how to turn on the fan'. I guess that is a useful skill when the first day of school turns out to be ninety-one degrees and high humidity. Rebecca also decided she wants to go to all the schools that I've been to so she can get 'three different colored hats'. Hey, if it motivates her to practice math problems, I'm all for it.
