• N.Lo: “I’m a big boy, and I’m going to preschool.” Oh, boy. I guess it is time, after all. If K.Lo weren’t enrolled, I think I would wait an extra year, or even two. But at pickup and drop-off, N.Lo wants to stay. Every single time. And frankly, it would be kind of nice to have the office to myself for two mornings a week. We will see if the CFO approves this budgetary expense for either summer or fall.
  • K.Lo, who left the room and began crying inexplicably. “I lost a flower up my nose.” Actually, it was a small bead shaped like a flower, and upon examination, that bead was nowhere to be seen. Oh dear. Trying my best to keep cool, I tried the first step in nose-bead removal, which was simply blowing into a tissue. And that worked. Phew! Weirdly, she wanted it back afterward.
  • K.Lo, watching Spongebob Squarepants: “Sponges don’t talk!” She notes this a lot lately regarding most cartoon characters. Then she said, “Spongebob talks, but my sponge in the bathroom doesn’t talk.” So astute.
  • K.Lo, on the melting backyard snowman: “Poor Frosty!” And then, “But he’ll be back again someday.”
  • K.Lo, riding over one of a few small hills in town: “That bump tickled my belly!”

    I think Wyatt is ready for school, too.
    I can't believe the bead story! wow. good job not freaking out.
    Dellaina always comments, "you think Spongebob is weird?" because I do.

    So glad the bead came out easily. I had a camper do that once and it ended up with a slightly bloody nose. (But really, not bad, considering.)

    We have a friend who stuck a Tic Tac up his nose in the car and sneezed it out into the back of his dad's head when he was little :)

    Tic Tac sneeze! Love it. The situation could have been a lot worse. Was very relieved.
