We were in Columbus this weekend, and the girls were thrilled to discover that one of my parents' neighbors had installed a zip-line!

(I can't lie: I'm wishing I had tried it myself!)

Business as usual

After yesterday's foray into the world of pants, today was a dress-down day at school, which for Bethany means it's a dress-up day:
That's our Fancy Nancy!

Those of you who know Bethany well will realize immediately what a big deal this picture is:
(For those of you who don't get why that's a big deal, allow me to explain: Bethany has been wearing a uniform to school since Kindergarten, and now, a couple months into her 1st grade year, she is wearing pants to school for the first time. Ever.)

Mind Your Ps& Qs

Rebekah just bumped into Abby, and the following conversation took place.

Rebekah: Sorry, Abby.
Abby: You're welcome.
Rebekah: No, sorry, Abby.
Abby: You're. Welcome.
Rebekah (laughing): I didn't say "thank you", I said "sorry"!!
Abby: OH!!! Thank you!

Get in Line

Great Gram and Rebekah were discussing her aspirations of becoming a "pictionary". Here is a snippet of their conversation. 

Great Gram: Can I buy one of your pictures when you're a pictionary?
Rebekah: Well, you'll have to get in line!
Great Gram: Get in line?! I bet you'll make a lot of money selling your pictures.
Rebekah: No, I'm going to just give them away. That's why you have to get in line to get one.

Halloween is behind us, and our girls had a great time carving pumpkins, dressing up as ladybugs, and of course, trick-or-treating!

(somehow, we did manage to talk them out of Bethany's group costume idea: a baloney sandwich)
(And, um, sorry for the repeat pictures, there. I guess that's what you get when you have more than one person posting to the same blog!)
