Some Strange Game

The boots and the bat are Kira's. The ball is his, though. It's the beauty of being a third child--lots of stuff around to play with, and no one with the time to stop you from going outside in just your diaper.

Last Day of Kindergarten

We missed the final day of pre-school for John--it was last week & all a big whirlwind of pizza, ice cream, and "Clown Day" (don't ask because we don't really know). We did get Kira just a few minutes before she left for her last day as a kindergartener. It feels like she's a totally different kid than she was just ten months ago; probably it will always feel that way!
I asked Millie to take a picture of the two of us, to which she responded, "You know that you're wearing a bandana, right?" Well, duh. This is the charm of Kira's weird life--she gets on the bus and waves good-bye to her daddy riding away on his bicycle. Every elementary kid's dream, right?

The other day Kira & John went out to fight "the dragon." They do this fairly often; someday someone is bound to get hurt climbing up on top of the pile of dead branches we're saving for the chipper. Kira, in case you were wondering, is wearing a black leotard and a pink cape. Her name is "Super Kitty."
This sounds made up, but it's not. We found this on the kids' table when I was taking pictures out the window.
For those of you who don't read 6-year-old: 

Kira Gang Rules:
You must have a kitty! *
You have to be 5 between 5 or 10. *
You must keep this a secret! *
You have to have a name like Super Kitty!

She has been talking about her gang all week, inviting friends in. We'll keep you posted!
