Tomorrow we have Retrouvaille again. We've been doing pretty good with our assignment... well, until two days ago when this whole bad day/week started happening and then we abandoned ship pretty fast. I'm looking forward to getting back on track. Still really nervous about having to meet new people and nervous that we won't connect with the couples that are leading as well as we did at the Santa Cruz weekend. I guess it can't hurt, right? I am happy that this process seems to be working for us. I can tell the kids are happy to have us both around at the same time.

Yesterday, Addie was trying to explain homophones to Henry. Today she was asking E about BC, and what that meant. She also read to us tonight from Polka Bats and Octopus Slacks, my new favorite kids' poetry book.

Here's Addie's favorite poem. She can't read it without laughing, which is half the fun.

Funky Snowman

Funky Snowman loves to dance.
You'd think he wouldn't have much chance
without two legs
or even pants.
Does that stop Funky Snowman?

Turn up the music with the disco beat,
when you're in the groove, you don't need feet.
Crowds come out and fill the street.
Kick it, Funky Snowman!!

I love it. Reminds me of the Shel Silverstein poems I would read as a child... over and over and over...
Ooh! Dinner is finally ready. Gotta run.
