May 19, 2008
Sarah and Emily discovered boys last week. Sarah made a "love card" for William, who lives in a cul-de-sac on the way to school. Her card read "I Love You" and it also contained a message (which I will spell correctly) "I will marry you; you must say yes."
Emily made a card for Charlie Finn, who lives on the next block. Her greeting was less persuasive but just as direct; "Let's get married. I love you."
Both of the girls have an active social life, with numerous social engagements (birthday parties), sporting events (soccer), and other commitments (doctor visits and athletics).
Sarah is very enthusiastic about soccer. Emily is mainly interested in the social aspects of the sport. At their last soccer game, Sarah scored 5 times. Emily skipped onto the field during play, chasing a butterfly.
Last Saturday, Sarah and Emily ran a 1K race, for which they each received a bronze medal. They were so proud.
I took the girls to the office for Take Your Children to Work Day in April. AARP planned games and tours of the building for all of the children, who went home with candy, t-shirts, and little toys made in China. Now Sarah and Emily think work is fun.
