Say Hey People of the Blog (the unsuccessful sequel to People of the Book),

The first two are from the first day of pre-pre school. Tilly is in blue/Ellie in white owls. The rest are from today. By the way, the 80's and 90's are back! Ellie has on purple hair ties and Tilly has pink. I realize that is almost no help at all, so sorry. I know that's Tilly holding the card and Ellie with the Flip camera. And Tills on the turtle. Tilly no longer wants me to take her picture "no cheese, no cheese" she yells at me. So there may be more Tillys pictures for a while.
The ladies are still in the throws of the terrible 2's. Perhaps it's the terrible 4's since there are 2 of them. Either way they are enjoying throwing tantrums and yelling at me. Their favorite new phrase is "Mama do it." Here's a typical conversation. Abby: "Girls can you pick up your crayons?" E and T: "Mama do it." Let's hope Romo throws 3 TDs today, I need the points.

Say Hey Blogtrotters, Lots of picks today. The first 4 are of our hallway. Abby and I have been painting in the evenings for the past couple of weeks. Each animal takes a long time to complete. The rest are of the ladies at the Arboretum. It was the first time in a long time it has been bearable outside. Tilly is in brown and Ellie in pink. That boy is their friend Brandt, who always riles them up, or perhaps we rile him up, either way Exhibit A is the video. Oh, and that's Till pledging allegiance on the bus. (The ladies plus Brandt rode the bus and had a great time.)
