We spent a three nights in New York City after Christmas while we had some work done on the house. Emily packed 3 suitcases.
The morning after we arrived home, Tim saw a squirrel in our bedroom. "Cyril" found his way into the heating duct down in the utility room. Tim and two other men with skills captured and released him outside. The same day, I found another squirrel in the sunroom and chased him upstairs to the girls' bedroom. I grabbed my camera, took some pictures, then opened a window.
We had a nice trip to New York City, even though we arrived the day after a record-breaking snowstorm. We spent time downtown and took a ferry to Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty. On Liberty Island, Miryam*, Sarah, Emily and I got yelled at by two park rangers for having a snowball fight. We all went shopping together and Tim tried on a pair of skinny jeans.
There's a boy in Emily's class named Will who drinks two cans of Red Bull a week and goes hunting in the woods with a gun. For Show & Tell, Will brought in a photo of he and his dad standing over a dead deer.
You may recall Penny, who had an accident on one of our rugs. Penny wears a training bra and deodorant. She spent New Year's Eve at our house and broke Emily's brand new camera. I don't trust that girl.
Emily wanted to know what would have happened "if Jesus were lactose intolerant."
*We don't know Miryam
