Day 11.039: Exile #2's Sunday Column #212

Exile #2 writes...

It was a busy day of this and that. Exile #1 began the morning shoveling the few inches of snow that had fallen overnight.


We made it to church, then enjoyed an afternoon of taxi driving. Exile #4 had a youth group meeting. Exile #3 was invited to a birthday party, where she found herself ice skating for the first time in many years. It sounds like she hadn’t completely forgotten how to stay upright, although she may not be up to a triple lutz quite yet. Mind you she did get an unexpected opportunity to practice yesterday, as parts of our hike were surprisingly treacherous. E5N1 certainly ended up on the ground at some point, but knowing his love of slapstick, it may not have been entirely accidental. The slippery parts may be gone by next weekend, however, as this coming week looks like it will be fairly sunny and dare I say it, warm.

We made it out for a walk on the beach today. It looked like this:


and this...


We got there by a different route than normal, but I'll tell you about that another day.

Day 11.037: Luke at that!

I took this for friends who collect Star Wars related license plate photos, but who am I to deny myself?

Day 11.034: I know what he means...

...but only because he explained himself!


Let me translate for you:
Mozzarella cheese sandwich (you know what I mean)

or, perhaps:

Mom, please would you make me a (goat) mozzarella cheese sandwich for my lunch tomorrow? Thanks! E5N1 xxx

Day 11.033: Tamed games

I don't have a very good "before" picture, but the corner of our dining room has been a board game storage pile for quite a while.


Now, thanks to Exile #2's hard work (and a little construction help from me) we have this:


I'm tempted to say that it looks like there's room for some more, but we do have "a few" more in overflow storage in the basement!
