This is Dorothy and me pretending to be flamingoes at the zoo yesterday. I have no idea why this picture uploaded first (see: things I have been typing on Blogger since 2005).

When I went to volunteer in Cooper's class on Friday afternoon, I was feeling fairly glum about my break coming to an end and being stuck here for the kids' break. When I took the first little spelling group out into the hallway for their tests, I asked one of the kiddos if he was going anywhere for break, and he said, "Oh yeah I am! I am going to Skyzone and to play laser tag and to mini-golf and the movies!" And I was like omg yes! this is so the attitude I need!
So, in addition to, you know, WORKING FULL TIME, I am going to make sure we also squeeze in tons of fun.
We started Friday after school with ice cream and the library because we are PARTY ANIMALS!
Ben's parents came to town on Saturday to celebrate Ben, Dorothy, and Jack's birthday. Dorothy loved her Calico Critters and immediately got to work playing.Multi-cake:
We decided to try the pool again Sunday morning.

Harry wrote a speech about immigration, won his classroom competition, won his school competition, and got to compete in the city-wide contest against 6-12th graders from across the school district.
He got a suit.
Also, it was Pi Day, and we planned ahead.
