On Tuesday evening, Thea had to explain to Coach James why she wasn’t allowed to participate in soccer practice. She had to watch from the sidelines. Mrs. Lauver had reported that Thea kept calling a classmate a “bush baby” and wouldn’t apologize (they’ve been studying nocturnal animals).
The next day, she looked more innocent.
This week’s show-and-share assignment was to use different sizes and shapes of leaves to make an animal picture. Look at these incredible creations…
Thea made a big fish, a medium one, and a school of fish. Can you tell she’s also learning about the hyphen and period punctuation marks?
During ‘Third in the Burg’, the kids perfected their folded-slice pizza eating technique at the Broad Street Market.
Later, Thea watched excitedly as the Fudge-o-Lutely ladies made cotton candy, but she seemed let down by the result: “I don’t like the fur, Momma”.

She made a couple more goals from down field.
She used to do throw-ins only to herself, but now she throws to her teammates.

Post-game pep: “Go Wildcats!”
Finally, she joined her entourage on the sidelines.
We put our house up for sale!
Finn helped me clean for the Open House event.
Jason made delicious Brunswick Stew and Bacon-Berry Bread Pudding for a friend’s Bacon, Brews & Barbeque Too fundraiser. The guys were impressed that he’s “just a home cook”.
Tough-critic Finn was impressed too.
“More please, Daddy. It’s spicey”.
While Jason was finishing up at Bacon & Brews, the kids and I passed some time at the State Museum. The cow got a lot of attention.
The building center did too.
Thea was impressed by the “Hand San” dispenser and coated herself.

And suddenly, the weekend was a wrap!
