Monday’s Smorgasbord

My favorite words by Nora and the definitions by yours truly:

  1. Teddy Burr (teddy bear):  when a stuffed animal gets under your saddle.
  2. Unnerwhere (undies): what’s that unner there?… unnerwhere?
  3. Peaksa (pizza): when you take a little looksie in the oven door to see if the cheese is indeed melted.
  4. Enbalope (envelope): when you quit eloping earlier than planned.
  5. Austeen (Austin): the new teenage version of her older brother.
  6. Chickenout (check it out): what you do when you are too scared to jump into the cold water.
  7. Heronimo (Geronimo): an old Indian hero – Nora yells this when she jumps into the swimming pool.

Other tidbits of information from today’s saga:  VBS has begun… hip hip hooray!  My mother and I went shopping and out to lunch!  Boooyah!  The colorful fabrics at JoAnn’s caused me to be deeply inspired to CREATE!  I bought a pattern to sew a dress for Nora!  Ohhhhyeah!  I was dismissed from jury duty before they even saw my outfit!  Rockonnnnn! And I got a ticket from a nice officer of the law.  Booo-hisssss!  Traffic school, here I come! No, I wasn’t speeding… the city closed the road that is the closest entrance onto the freeway… and I took it anyway… for the last time.

    I see that you have done HOW I with your kids. Could you e-mail me at flanagan_5@msn.com as I would love to pick your brain on how to implement this curriculum without totally overwhelming my 9th grader.

    It was such fun shopping with you and lunch!!!! It’s been so long since we did that. You amaze me with your way with words – that was so clever how you described Nora’s words. That Heronimo just makes me laugh!!! It took me awhile to understand what she was yelling. Love you.
