lindsey played the part of laura ingalls wilder at school. it was actually seriously cool. i walked into the classroom to all the students in a circle, frozen in a certain position. they were dressed for the part (from harriet tubman, to jfk jr., to harry houdini...). to hear a short bio on the person, you walked up to their desk and pushed a button. they unfroze, gave their bio, sat down, and froze again in the same position as before. i loved it. jordan went to the prom! he and his date looked fabulous (i loved her dress), and the day was perfect for it. it was, of course, before the rain came and stayed for multiple days in a row (good news though... looks like it's clearing out today!). we took william and lindsey out of school for a day and met up with friends of ours in boston (including rachael!). we walked all around beacon hill, hearing bits and pieces of its history from a friend of ours who knows it like the back of his hand.
and then... came the rains.
i wore a sweater! bleck! when we've already had 90 degree weather, it feels altogether wrong and strange to be pulling a sweater over my head... and i took the kids to the library (parker remained in pajamas for like 48 hours straight). we did some reading, lindsey did some more farm-planning, and steve took a few naps with the little boy. i love catching them napping.
and that's the latest around the hunt house.
