Austin, Jocelyn and Gavin came over to play today. (Ashton and Emmy have been at Art Camp each morning this week)
When Austin and Joce come over, there are just piles of costumes everywhere. All these kids’ imaginations go wild and they want to be every character available. I love it. Ashton used to be the same way. He was ALWAYS dressed up as some kind of super hero. I know it will be sad when they all outgrow the dress-up phase…
Trevan came over and wanted Ashton to help him sell Otter Pops. He got way more help than he expected!
Emmy and I talked while we colored and listened to jams for a while. All of her friends were busy and it was nice to have her to myself this afternoon. I usually get to talk to her when I’m tucking her in at night. Then she has a billion things to tell me so I know I’m missing out on stuff all day.
Grammy very kindly came to watch the kids at the last minute so Josh and I could go to the Parade of Homes. When we got home at 9:30, we found these three cracking up while reading “The Value of Believing in Yourself”. Grammy insisted that they pronounce the names and speak the quotations in the correct accents. It was hilarious! “Louis Pasteur” in the best French accent they (including Ethan) could muster. And Grammy’s accents were killing Josh and me as we listened to the last half of the book. We recognized French, German, Italian, Hitler, Steve Martin as the Pink Panther, Franc from “Father of the Bride”, and Dracula.
