Nana and Papa had a late in the season drop off and she has been spending her time at their place instead of the farm since it was so cold. I had a weak moment and said out loud to the girls "Maybe Nana and Papa would let you do foster care for their kitty during their winter stay in Mexico." Not more than a week later, little smudge arrived. She was so good on the car ride home, sat with both girls and didn't make a peep. Awesome, our veteran cat, wasn't too pleased at first, but seems to have given in to her presence. She hasn't gotten into too much trouble, except for climbing the curtains from time to time. The girls have taken care of her for the most part. They are monitoring her food/water/litter, and I've hardly had to step in-that should last about another week, right?! She sleeps with them every night. This picture is right after we got home with her, Lucy crashed and I guess little Smudge knew her place in the household...
The kids looked much cooler than I did. But some of the other Girl Scout moms and I decided we are all going to dress up as different characters from Grease next year. I did grease what little hair Isaac has left... Elena is wearing the Carlson's poodle skirt from their elementary days, I'll have to get mine from mom's house for next year.
Prescott knows how to put on a Sock Hop! The live band and Elvis appearance were great. The girls spent most of the time on the dance floor. I had to resist my temptation to join them, since the floor was packed already. Guess I'll get my chance in February at the Caves. There was also a carnival in the classrooms. I gave each of them 10 tickets. Lucy spent all of hers immediately. Elena spent 4 and saved the rest...for a rainy day I guess?? Apparently that "Spend, Save, Share" Piggy bank is having an effect. 1 out of 2 ain't bad.
