Sarah and Emily have been very busy with school, their active social life, travel and charity events. Sarah and Emily’s Montessori school classes collected “Coins for Compassion” earlier this year to donate to schools in Louisiana affected by Hurricane Katrina. Every morning before school the girls begged me for money. I told them to ask their father.
The girls taught themselves how to milk a cow using their wooden rocking horse and an ice bucket.
We travelled to Chicago by automobile for Spring Break, stopping at Uncle Jeff’s house near Pittsburgh to break up the trip. Jeff’s wedding is May 13, a hot topic right now with Sarah and Emily, who will be flower girls during the ceremony.
In Chicago we visited family and friends, sat on the Willy Wonka Easter Bunny’s lap (the Easter Bunny sold his naming rights) and saw lots of animals at Brookfield Zoo.
We returned home Sunday afternoon. Sarah forgot that parents don’t spend time with their children after a week-long family vacation. She asked me to play with her and I told her to play with the dog. She said, “But Sake doesn’t have any hands.”
