Home Alone VII – Day 1 (after bed time edition)

Posted by D under family

So I picked the girls up at school. They were very happy to see me. And asked about whether my plane was late (since K2 had told them that if the plane was late Melissa would pick them up from school). I told them that we had been on time and that I was very excited to see them.

We walked home and stopped at the swings around the corner. The weather was gorgeous so they played for quite a while. A neighbor came by with her dog. S2 immediately came over and asked “What’s your dog’s name?”. She was told that it was Penny. Which fascinated the girls. After all they love Penny and Bolt. The idea that Penny could also be the name of a dog was quite surprising to them.

It took some persuasion (and the onset of hunger) to get them to finally go home with me. We had dinner. Remarkably, S2 tried to speak German the whole time. Asking for more food in German, even trying to talk about school in German. H2 wanted to be an acrobat. I convinced her that it was too late to change into different clothing, but that maybe she could wear acrobat pajamas. And of course S2 immediately wanted to do the same.

Enjoy them upside down, back to back, tumbling backwards, stretching, tumbling over each other and leaping across each other.

Needless to say, they had fun. Bed time was a little later than planned, but everyone is happy.
