My bro and his family stopped to visit on their way up to Alaska, and we had a great time with the cousins! The weather was great and we went to the pumpkin patch/corn maze.

Yesterday was Kate's first day of Kindergarten. Believe it or not, it was a tear free day for both of us! (Okay, I got a bit misty eyed after I picked her up, but that was it!) Kate had been to the school a bunch - she even helped paint her room. She had also met her teacher several times, so it was pretty painless. After two days of school, it turns out that Kate and Kindergarten get along swimmingly.

While emptying the dishwasher, Kate offered Faith this sage advice:

Faith woke up feeling very benevolent today. Before we went down to breakfast the girls needed to clean up their room. Faith started hanging up her shirts, and then Kate's shirts too! While she was doing this, Kate approached Faith with her reindeer.
[A side note on Faith's reindeer. She is a Build a Bear reindeer and has a button that, when pushed, says: "Hi! I'm Clarisse!" Faith disregarded this and named her Rosabella. She doesn't like the name "Grease" (Clarisse). She is a bit miserly with Rosabella, which makes Kate long to play with her even more. Kate also continues to call Rosabella 'Clarisse' and it really annoys Faith.]
Kate then hopefully asked, "Faith, may I please play with Rosabella?" (she was careful to use the right name)
Faith considered aloud, "Hmmm, I don't know... Maybe..... Yes."
Kate delightedly hugged and kissed Faith, and started playing with Rosabella. Faith was obviously feeling pretty good about being generous, so after some more thought, she added:
"And you can call her Grease."
This little guy learned how to go down the stairs today! He LOVES climbing up, but when it comes to going down, he would really rather hover or float down. This morning he embraced the law of gravity and slid down on his belly. When he got to the bottom, he game himself an enthusiastic applause.

The kids and I started this book the other day. We got to the part where the lawyer tells young Cedric that as an Earl he will have lots of money. Cedric thinks it would be very nice to have lots of money, and proceeds to tell the lawyer how he would use it to help people. I then asked Kate what she would do if she had lots of money.
"Hmmmm, I would use it to buy lots of stuff for my family, just in case."
Me: "Like what kind of stuff?"
Kate: "Like ribbon."
It's nice to know that, if Kate ever becomes wealthy, we will all be well taken care of.

I borrowed my title from one of my favorite blogs, though this post has nothing to do with mouth-watering concoctions - far from it. I would go so far as to say that this post should be called Our Worst Bites, but you be the judge.
