I have no idea what to title this post, so I won’t. It is random.
First, caterpillars. Last week Ruby and Katherine were intrigued by a few caterpillars. I do not like anything crawling on me…even a caterpillar. Here are some pictures…
Molly was waiting on a caterpillar to take the bait….
Ruby went so far as to put her caterpillar in a jar and take him to school the next day. We forgot the whole, “all living things need water” thing, so the caterpillar died all alone in the jar the next day.
But Ruby was cute as a button taking it to school. She said she wanted her braids to be longer and sit in front of her shoulders like Laura Ingalls’ braids do. I said, “Oh, Ruby, run fetch some water at the creek, then get in the wagon so Pa can take you to town.” “Oh, Ruby, you will just have to be patient and let your hair grow if you want long braids.”
Mrs. Mary and I enjoyed several hours out and about town together on Thursday. It was so very fun!!!! We shopped, we ate, we shopped, we got our toes done, and we talked and talked and talked. It was so nice. The Koester family leaves in two weeks for TN!!!!! I think I am still in denial. I just can’t imagine how this is going to change things around here! I am refusing to think about it for too long right now.
By the way, Mrs. Mary, when Mack woke up from his nap he really liked the gum!
I tried to teach Molly how to blow a bubble. It didn’t really work.
