C's Scout Club

Here are some things that have been happening:
  • The kids produced a large paper towel banner (labeled "C's Scout Club) and taped it over the doorway between the dining room and the living room. C said, "D and I have started our very own scout troop and D and I are the only people in it." I have no idea what the inspiration for this was.
  • I had a dream last night in which I had a number of unexpected lunch guests, including Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. I wanted to make bean and rice burritos for everybody, but I didn't have enough ingredients. This is officially my first homemaking anxiety dream--my normal anxiety dreams are about finding myself in front of a strange class with no roster and no lesson plan.
  • We're waiting for a referral for D for a gastro. The clinic to which we are being referred is at least an hour away, but there may not be anything closer. Ever since we got the call, D has barely complained about his tummy.
  • C brought home a flower close-up drawing that she did in art. Her class was studying Georgia O'Keefe.
  • Last night was the big school concert and C's class was performing, along with the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders and the junior and senior high school. The 4th and 5th grade group was the most impressive. They did a couple of squeak-free pieces on their recorders, demonstrated solfege and sang well. When one of the classes was singing Scarborough Fair, I noticed several middle schoolers in the audience rocking out to it. ???????
  • C will be performing in a Mexican folk dance and D will be performing in his class play. As per instructions, I sent D to school in his zebra costume today. I ordered him a mask and tail, which he will be wearing with a white polo, black pants, and black mocs. D was worried about the school logo on his polo, but I suggested to him that the zebra goes to his school. D wasn't buying it.
