Bridget received a lovely gift from Aunt Fran earlier in the year -- a violin that was given to Fran by her Uncle Walter. Here Bridget plays with her when she visited us the day after Grandpa's funeral.
We got part of the house painted this year... thanks to the boys who worked very hard on it. Keep in mind that this surface area -- part of the back of the house -- is the surface area of many whole houses :(
Bridget: You know what the problem is with calling this a family feature? Boys just aren't gonna want to watch A Little Princess.
Deirdre: What if it's a family of all women?
Bridget: Well, they just can't take those chances.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Will: Time is overrated. You can quote me on that.
Sukie: Dude, I already want to drop out of school again [first week].
Will: How do you spell throat? Never mind. No! How do you spell throat?!
We got a new kitten, Gypsy.
Sukie: Oh my goodness, I totally want this to be my quote.
Listen: "Brownies are great, because they're basically chocolate, with more surface area."
That's just. so. deep.
Mary Claire came to visit with her mom, Susan, and we spent an afternoon in Marblehead.
Habou: I don't want these people telling me about high blood pressure. "Oh, your blood pressure is kinda high!" Get another job!
Mom [regarding some flavored soda she doesn't approve of on account of the bad ingredients; it was left here, not bought by us]: The point is that you don't ingest it. I don't care how you don't obtain it.
Mary Claire helped find a kitty to keep Gypsy company. His name is Farouk. "Maybe we'll find a kitty at a yard sale," Habou said, and we did!
