1. Kevin’s parents gifted us with a pose-able skeleton for Halloween. Rocco spent five minutes outside with it and I found Skelly looking like this:
Skelly totally gets me–that’s the same way I feel when I spend five minutes with Rocco.
2. Vincenzo just finished his thank-you cards. You don’t need to read them but just look at their overall style:
I just love how very Charlie Brown-ish they look.
3. Last week Rocco’s voice was a little hoarse. Kevin’s dad asked if he was sick or something and Kevin said, “Nope; he’s just been talking for the past five years.”
4. Vincenzo closed a book he had been reading all afternoon. I asked him if he finished it and he said, “No—I just turned it off.”
It feels weird to end on #4. Does anyone have a #5 to toss out there tonight?
