Cari and Amber are looking forward to their favorite event of the year, Burning Man! We sure will miss them, and Amber will miss the first couple of weeks of school, but it is such a wonderful educational opportunity for their family, and they wouldn’t miss it for the world.
Of course Starling wants to go with them.. She has been crying and complaining that she can’t start school without her lil’ buddy. I am not a camper and Röbert does not think Burning Man is a good use of our resources, so we will not be joining them this year. I suggested to Röbert that we shake Starling out of her funk by letting her experience camping with him. So the two of them set out for a Daddy-Daughter 3 day hike and camping trip early this morning. Starling was all dressed in festival wear, including some darling fringed boots.
Of course that means that I am a single mom again. I don’t know how i do everything! I took the boys over to the park to do a little fishing today. I didn’t bait their hooks because, eeew, so there was no chance I would end up cleaning a disgusting fish, but it kept them occupied for a few hours so I could catch up with my friends at a semi-nearby picnic table.
I did call the preschool about Hummus and the director was so rude. She said she hadn’t called me back because she thought I was joking. The nerve! Well, her oldest will be in the kindergarten at Rumsfeld Elementary this fall, and we will see how that goes!
Oh, you can vote for Hummus in the Cute Kid contest every day in August. I have perused the other entries and they aren’t much to speak of. I wish I could get a hold of their parents and encourage them to just give it up.
