A few snippets in a blog that's been woefully ignored:
Yesterday, Ellen sent Kim an email with the following message:
> Dear Mommy
> let Ellen stay home today or we will destroy your planet.
> From the igana men
To which Kim replied:
I do not respond well to such strong threats--even when they are given by
someone named "iguana men."
Sorry--but it is off to school for you!
So, at least that's cleared up...
Our next stop is a piece of artwork of Ellen's. They did Jackson Pollock day in art class, with all the kids doing the traditional odd little splatter painting. Ellen's was the same, but had an interesting title:
"A Shattered Rainbow: Where rainbows go to get repaired"
I liked that.
Our third byte comes from Katie, who got her self portrait into the same art fair as Miss Ellen did last year (or 2 years ago--I forget). The picture is (or, will be) here:
Lastly, there's something nice about giving kids email, because you never know what you're going to get. As above, Ellen took it upon herself to just send out an email, this time to me. However, this one was a bit less threatening:
> Dear Daddy
> I just wanted to let you know that I love you
> Love ???
I don't know why there's a ??? but the sentiment is nice...I think.
