Bean and Bug have both made honor roll this past 9 weeks. Bug asked if we could look into getting some ice cream as a reward. I hope she is easily pleased when she’s 16 as well!
We had a mass of children Saturday night. There were the neighbors, M & K, Bean, Bug, and Almost Mine. Since everyone had done pretty well on their report cards, it became a group outing.
Do you know how long it takes for 5 children to decide what they want?
Do you know how many funny looks you get when you walk into a store with 5 children that span a 3 year age difference?
Fadre and I realized the only child out of the 5 that didn’t look like it belonged? Bean. Everybody else has pretty much the same hair color – but hers is much darker. When you see her face though, you know she is Fadre’s child. At least that’s what people tell me. I see a child who constantly looks at life through a prism. But that’s another story…
It turned out to be a worthy reward.
And we were all happy. Did I mention I had a strawberry parfait? You know, I’ve been working hard too.
And my willpower was not strong enough to just watch them eat it.
And then Bug asked if these could spend the night:
And I said yes.
Because I had forgotten they were energized by this:
Oh, and the last one was still awake after 11 o’clock that night.
