Here we are trying to take a nice family picture. Christopher is on his mark. Lydia is offstage fluffing her hair or something. Eden seems to be feeling disenfranchised for one reason or another which may have motivated her next move which was to get up and tap the laptop.

*LATE EDITION *
Three wondrous things that Christopher said this week:
1. “Mom, thank you for teaching me to talk and read.” (Tuesday, while sitting in the gazebo doing math.)
2. “Thanks for homeschooling me, Mom.” (Thursday, while walking to put away a book.)
3. “My mother, who works so hard for me and does so many things that I forget to thank her for, and to whom I promise to do whatever chores need to be done and I won’t even whine.”
(Thursday afternoon while sitting at the island reading his MUSE magazine. He was answering the question in a money quiz: “If I were designing a new dollar bill and could put a portrait on it, I would choose…
a. My dog.
b. My hamster.
c. My mother, who works so hard…
e. Oh, all RIGHT. My Mother.
He had circled “d”, only to erase it and circle “c”, he later erased that and finally settled on “a”, which I can’t dispute.)
It is really hard to take a picture of a black dog with black eyes.
This Friday we will have had him for three weeks. He is starting to grow into those big paws. I just looked out the window and noticed that he is chewing on an empty plastic 4-pack that held some annuals Eden and I planted.
*sighs, as she gets up to go take it away and give him a real chew toy*
