- Lila, you got your cast off today. I'm so surprised how easy and complaint free this broken arm was. I paid a little extra for a fiberglass cast so we didn't need to worry about getting it wet. It was worth every penny. You were fascinated with the saw that removed it. I was surprised. I remember Jane was kind of scared, but you thought it was hilarious.
- George, I walked into the living room and you were lounging on daddy's chair with the string of your shorts shoved up your nose. Kids are so weird.
- Katie Bean, you're so into your book right now. You're obsessed. It's pretty great to see you reading again after a little break.
- Lila, you came outside to help me organize and trim the vine growing at our front door. I'm so darn proud of myself for keeping that thing alive. I can't believe it. It's the first time I've kept something alive for an entire summer, never mind a second season.
