1.) Anneliese sang in chapel choir again last week. She was as adorable and delighted as the first time.
And what's sweeter than a choir full of four-year-olds anyway?
|Anneliese is tall* so in the back row, to the right.|
*Side story: one of Mark's first memories of interacting with me was when we were taking some group picture for school (band! fine! it was for band! we were at BAND CAMP okay?) and they told us to stand by height and I hopped up into the back row, because apparently part of my self-image is that I am tall? And apparently I am actually... not that tall? (I feeeeeeel like I am tall.)
So anyway Mark watched as they moved me down a row and then down another and then apparently it happened again (!) later in the school year and he kept wanting to yell at me (in his best Seinfeld-to-George "you're bald" voice): YOU ARE AVERAGE! But he didn't, because he is Mark, and that is just not a very Mark thing to do. But! He does like to bring up this story every time I mention that I am tall, which is apparently still fairly often. Because I am! I mean, not a giant! But fairly tall! Really!
2.) Charlotte has a new purple peacoat. In my opinion (as the shopper), it is perfection.
3.) Nathan was telling me some story the other night about something that happened at a Boeing parts factory (I don't even know) and he thought it was the best most hilarious mishap ever, and even though the story was actually suuuuper boring, his perfect smile and giggling about it enchanted me anyway.

I'm glad I got a picture though so I never have to get him to tell me that story again though. Yawn.
(Y'all hush, I am a good mom, take a seat and stop clutching your pearls.)
