Then they got to flatten out wads of clay into tablets and use a wedge to write in Cuneiform. Ella's in on the left. The bigger one says "heart" and the smaller one says her name. I have no idea what Hank's says. He and the boys at his table formed some sort of club with code names and secret passwords. He said something about having to kill me if he told so I didn't press him on it.
If you live in the mid-Atlantic region then you know all about stinkbugs. We are blessed to live in a rural area where there is plenty for stinkbugs to eat which means there are plenty of stinkbugs....like swarms of Biblical proportions. It's disgusting and maddening. When it's time to leave the house for anything, I line the kids up in the hallway, open the door slowly so as not to disturb the million bugs resting on the door and have the kids run out like maniacs (shrieking and arms flailing to keep bugs from landing on them). Fun times happening here.
Lately I've been finding interesting drawings lying around the house. Ella draws continually so I'm used to finding her creations stashed here and there. I thought the first of these drawings was Ella's ode to the stinkbugs. Then I looked closer and saw they weren't as "Ella-fied" as her usual drawings.
Hank has been drawing his ode to his little sister.
This totally made me laugh out loud, discreetly, of course
This says, "Ella is stinkypants" Such sophistocated humor
And yes, we're working on both of them being kind and respectful towards each other
So what's happening in your world these day?
