This week at school, Sarah and Emily participated in the St. Jude Trike-a-Thon at school to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Last week, Sarah performed in a play at school called “The Great Kapok Tree.” In her role as a child wearing a paper bag costume, she recited her lines loudly and clearly and waved to the audience several times during the performance.
The girls created artwork for Tim for Father’s Day. Emily went with her dad to his favorite bakery and we had a cookout with 8 guests for dinner.
Sarah is learning to manipulate men. She said, “When Kai is mean to me, I go play with Adi and he bees [sic] mean to Kai.”
Emily complains that the seams near the toe of her socks “bother” her. At bedtime, she must have a cold cup of water next to the bed, and I’m not allowed to cuddle with her because, as she puts it, “it makes me tight.” She won’t wear polo shirts because the “collar pokes me.”
Sarah only likes broccoli stems; Emily eats the florets.
Sarah and Emily told Ms. Hannah at school that they would not be attending the summer sessions this year because they have to plan their birthday party. She reminded them that their birthday is in October, and they responded with, “...but we have a lot to do.”
