Book Of The Month Club

Daisy was reading to herself, but got distracted when I came in. She was pointing out a circle. Melts this teacher's heart.

Annual Beard-Off

Let the Beard-Off begin! Actually, we're in the midst of it. About 6 or 7 guys from Abe's work participate in the Annual Beard-Off. They draw ridiculous facial hair types from a bag, i.e. the chinstrap (see photo above), the boy band pencil thin beard, a full-on beard with absolutely no trimming, the moustache with soul patch(as shown below from last year), chops, etc. All the guys start growing on the same day. When an individual can stand it no longer and he shaves, he pays five bucks to each remaining contestant. At present, there are 3 guys left. As ridiculous as my Amish husband looks, I'm telling him to tough it out--Momma needs a new dress!

You Say Tomato, I Say Tomato

The kids and I ran errands until dinner time one evening. Zeke was hungry so I told him we would stop and get him a hamburger on the way home. Zeke: Are we going to go into the restroom to get a hamburger? Me: (after taking a second to think about this) Yes, we're going to a restaurant, but we won't go in. Zeke: Won't the driveway be closed since it's dark? Me: No, the drive-thru will still be open. This is the kids on their 'cooking chairs' making dessert. They drag them over from the table to help cook--even little Daisy drags her own chair. (I think it goes without saying that clothing is optional when using the cooking chair. You can rest better seeing that Abe, however, is fully clothed.)
