The wild ones came in slightly less wild and we did some schoolwork. Ian's homework was quite fun. The fourth grade wrote a story to make into an imagery book. His class spent two days painting paper with different techniques and paint. Ian has to cut out the characters from all that paper and make his story entirely visual. Ned and I helped him make fish, his story takes place in the ocean. Ned read books to me as Ian worked. I don't know how Ellen didn't end up with work to do - highly suspicious.
Unfortunately this bit of sitting led into my least favorite game, it is called Fat Albert or Fat Boom. They have never even seen the Fat Albert tv show, so how it got the name is beyond me. It involves finding every pillow and stuffed animal in the house and stuffing them in your pants and shirt. The game sneaks up on me, they are quiet as they are looking for all the padding. After they are sufficiently fattened they run into each other and wrestle. This always ends up with Ned getting hurt and today was no different. It also means that pillows and stuffed animals are all over the house. I guess at our house the game ain't over until Ned cries.

I can hear the rain has started, where is a good el nino when you need it. Probably more delays or cancellation as we are all flash frozen.
