Also, Woo started a new summer job for a very promising start-up. The interview process went something like this:
Woo: Well, I really like working from home, and I'm hesitant to commute somewhere, but I'm just spinning my wheels on my own stuff.
Them: Great! Don't even bother to send us your resume. Just come on down and let's talk some more!
Woo (to me later): I blew it! Why am I such a dumb? I think I was supposed to do the thing they asked me to do in 10 minutes, but I took 2 hrs ...
Them (a few days later): So what are you thinking? How much would you like to be paid? When can you start?He's just going in once a week and says that his first day was horrible and that he blew everything, but can you see how I'm having a hard time believing him?
Luckily, we just ran over to the church and played every game we could think of: relays, twister, sharks-n-minnows, dodgeball, etc. Herbie thought it was a success, I think.
Moses (running in the house after the first fishing trip of the season): Mom!! Dad and I were the only ones to catch anything!!
Me: Oh? Good job, Moses!
Moses: I caught a caterpillar! And Dad caught some fish.
The first line in Ruby's story she wrote today:
"Once upon a time there were six orphans ... "
I have news for you, Ruby. The life of an orphan is not all it's cracked up to be. Especially six of them.
Archie is really going to town on sucking those hands. It's almost like he's getting some teeth, but he's not, as far as I can tell. He does seem to be pretty familiar with his own hands, though, and I've started to wean him off the swaddle. Once he's done with that, I can move him up to the crib.
We discovered this week that Penelope knows her colors. Or at least some of them.
Penelope (pointing at a blue plate): Mom! Boo bate!
Me (carrying two towels towards the tub)
Penelope (pointing to the yellow one): Mom! El-low one!
Linus loves Herbie's tiny, little soccer ball. It's really at about the perfect size for him, and he'll get out and dribble it a bit around the yard, and even attempt to pass it to Penelope. (She's not the best at passing the ball back).
I hope you all had a great week!
