Were you listening? 

Heavy rain today. We could not work outside so I was able to go with Julie to pick the kids up.

Emily was first. She got in with great excitement because she had made a calendar in school today. Emily colored a picture to represent each month and glued the pictures in a grid pattern. She admitted that August was not labeled because the teacher was not able to make enough copies of the words. She had me look at it and we talked briefly about how nice the colors were. A whole lot of oohs and ahas, compliments and commendations. We spent several minutes talking about all of the features of the calendar and then Emily asked that I hand the calendar back to her.

Then Julie asked her the standard question, "What did you do at school today?" Momentary pause and then the answer "Well, I made this calendar......(long pause)....... and did some other stuff I don't want to talk about." If you could have heard her tone of voice. I am glad Julie was driving because I was laughing so hard my eyes watered.

Honestly woman, were you even listening?
