Erin shared with me that she and Claire were headed to their Live Strong workout class after I left. I'm not sure what all that entails, but I am confident it involved burning more calories than I had planned for my evening. While we were discussing it, the excitement pouring from our boys at finally being reunited was intoxicating. Those boys were ecstatic! I think I might have been inhaling too much testosterone, or was light headed from the buzz of the young men, but I clearly overestimated my stamina! After a full Monday of teaching rowdy first graders, I offered to take all of the monkeys to my house while Erin and Claire went to their class. Clearly I was not thinking straight at all!!! Erin asked me several times if I was sure, although the time she asked when the stuffed bear was flying through her living room at mach 10 was not exactly sincere. But, bursting with overconfidence, I whisked the four crazies away and took them to my house. Those boys played and played and played. We all laughed like hyenas when they figured out a way to make the Lego Jack Sparrow on the Wii glitch so that it looked like he was dancing. If that weren't enough, Gavin whipped out his phone and added a theme song - Gangnam Style, of course. Even though I despise that song as a frequent offender of getting stuck in my head, I must admit, it was hilarious. I thought all four boys would surely suffocate from lack of oxygen, or perhaps would be begging for dry pants, the laughter was THAT uncontrollable.
|Jeez, I couldn't get a focused picture of these whirling dervishes.|
And finally, thank you to friends and family who participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Spokane this past Sunday. I was proud to walk with my dear friend, Robin, wearing our BooBees shirts in support of these two amazing ladies. I heard there were more BooBees shirts out there. Thanks for honoring our friends as they continue on this journey.
