I have a really funny story to go along with this photo, but I can’t tell you. Sorry.
I found this in Julia’s sketchbook.
In case you’re looking at this thinking, “I don’t get it,” click here.
Claire told Julia her manners were impeccable. Julia told us she wanted to make a joke. She said there is a woodpecker who saw a tree that looked impeccable. She’s six. That’s a pretty good joke. Is Julia growing up? Are all of her future jokes going to make sense? This is so sad.
Today, Julia drew a cheeto.
I promise to start posting about the other kids.
I asked Julia to draw a dog (a French bulldog — not a poodle!), and she draws a llama skeleton….and, as always, it looks hungry.
Julia’s been learning how to spell lately. I need some help reading this one. Let’s take this one word at a time: YOU – WASH – YOUR – HANDS – AND – WIPE – ?…can’t figure out that last word….
This is an elf trying to figure out how to get some toilet paper.
Despite wind that could have easily picked us up had we not been driving a Suburban, I took the kids to see BOLT — in 3D. The movie was good, but seeing Weston and Julia in their “one-size-fits-all” glasses was priceless. At one of the more climactic moments, the wind knocked out the power. They got the lights on quick enough but were having trouble with the dual projectors or something, so it took a bit before the movie started again. Meanwhile, Julia and Weston caught on to the fact that they were the only ones in the room without a $6 tub of popcorn ($5.75 if you want a small) and $50 drink (OK, I didn’t even look at how much the drinks were). They started to whine a bit, but when the movie started again, it was as though their brains turned off with the lights and they forgot all about it. As a bit of a concession, we stopped at McDonalds afterwards and had some cheap, greasy, delicious fries. That, and a sundae to wash it down, and we were ready to head home for dinner.
Julia got such a great reaction from her x-ray drawing that she’s been doing a lot more. This is an x-ray that includes the head. There used to be a square around it indicating that it is indeed an x-ray.
