The children have a book of "reward" stickers, intended (no doubt) to be placed on school work as a motivator. They like to have them on the back of the hand, or whatever.
Yesterday Cedwryck picked out a sticker and asked me what it said. I read it to him, "You did it!"
His defensive reply: "No, I didn't!" Azariah wandered by and heard Cedwryck's statement, so he asked, "You didn't do what?" Cedwryck insisted, "I didn't do anything." :-D
And, cool stuff today... I walked the children down to the village shop to get bread and see about fruit (We are planning a fun weekend). The fruit didn't look that great, but I found PLAIN CHOCOLATE Hobnobs!!!!!!!!! Now this is only spectacular news if you've ever had a Hobnob - they are a British "biscuit" that is really an oatmeal cookie, and have chocolate on one side. Now, I've been to England before, and learned enough to know that "plain" chocolate is "dark" chocolate, and that it goes great with Hobnobs. But since we've been here this time we've only seen the milk chocolate hobnobs, and they are good enough, but not like the plain ones. So I was thrilled to see this tube at the store (honestly, I'd decided that they must not make them anymore and had given up on it). They also have Fry's Peppermint Creams - a dark chocolate candy bar filled with creamy peppermint - that are pretty good, and also hard (but not impossible) to find. AND they sell my favorite ice cream bar (I posted about it when I first had one) individually, so I had to get one. I got each of the children a vanilla something (small and not too messy) - Taryn said it was like the pudding pops we made recently. My bar cost as much as all 4 of theirs. It is warm today. I'm glad we made the walk in the morning - it's over a mile there and back, and we were sweaty by the time we got home.
How cool is this - I typed "feet in a mile" in my search window at the top of my Firefox browser, and it popped up "= 5280 feet" - I didn't have to search for a webpage and then look it up!
Anyway, have a blessed weekend. I'll tell you all about it when we get back.
