We had Izzy overnight.
Ellie was beside herself.
Cause she thinks Izzy hung the moon.
Izz is going to Japan this summer on some fancy shcmancy school something or other.
It is an honor to be selected to go.
She needs to raise some money.
Ok, she needs to raise a lot of money.
We are so proud of her.
She doesn't really know anyone else going.
Very brave, methinks.
So what do we do when she comes over to spend the night?
And pay her to babysit.
Cause it's a win-win.
It's fun to get a glimpse of my future life with a teenage girl.
Girlfriend can text with a vengeance.
And 13 year old conversation is a bit more interesting
than 4 year old conversation.
Most of the time.
And I can ask her for opinion on a pair of boots I just bought.
And trust what she says is true.
And older brother Nick was home from college.
And used Ellie for some kind of school psych experiment.
(Not as scary as it sounds.)
Then took the girls out for dinner.
How sweet is that?
Next weekend Ellie is going over to Izzy's house to spend the night.
You know, more Japan $$.
We are excited!
It was a pleasure to have you Izzy.
Ellie is already talking about next weekend.
