Another Week

We made a visit to the monastery yesterday.
Ruby: What's a monastery? 
Moses: A monastery says RARRRR!!!! 
Me: No Moses, that's a monster... 
Moses: Oh. A monster says RARRRR!!! 
Herbie had a bad bike crash this week. Most of the left side of his face was scraped up and swollen. He's not afraid of his bike, but he is afraid of people's reactions to his face. He was mobbed by a group of little girls at the park, peppering him with questions about it. He didn't answer, but kept ducking behind Moses' bike until they left him alone.

On the way home he said, "Mom, I don't want to go to church."
"Oh? Why not?" 
"I don't want people to look at my face." 
The plate of cookies he got last night from a family of little girls in our ward may have changed his mind.

We got our first bit of non bus or recess related school news from Ruby today. She learned how to spell "CAN"
Woo: Did you learn how to spell anything else, Ruby? 
Ruby: I learned how to spell "I" 
Great?

Linus is still rolling around on the floor. He likes to get ahold of a sheet of paper and crinkle it all up. He's not really big on putting objects in his mouth. In fact, I'm not sure that I've ever seen him do it. But, he does like to open his mouth and dive for your face, if it's close enough.

Earlier today he caught a chunk of my hair and laughed as if he was being tickled. Hilarious, Linus. Hilarious.

Woo and I have been looking into fruit trees. It looks like we're pretty much limited to apple trees, and maybe pear. Seems kind of boring, but I guess we'll also be able to grow berries and grapes, and vegetables, of course.

Woo also wants chickens, which I'm surprisingly not as opposed to as I would've been, say five years ago. It helps to have neighbors to show you the ropes and resolve your concerns.

Anyways, talk to you all later!
