In preparation The VOR has readied a slew of prizes, work books, crayon caddies, books and such for the kids. My assignment is more utilitarian: oil changed, luggage moved, gas, atm, and last minute supplies (while writing it just hit me: does the VOR deliberately want me out of the house while she packs?)
The VOR and I are excited to be back in Richmond, food wise we get to eat at two of our favorite restaurants: Mexico and Gelati Celisti.
While on the topic of preparation last night I was listening to the Magnificat by J.S. Bach with Advent and Christmas in mind. As the first cd was about to close a beautiful organ solo was piping. I asked #2, what do you think of this music: it is spooky dad, I don't like it. The Magnificat as spooky?
Now to some four letter words voiced by #3. Pums = pumpkins. Wawa = water. Mups = The Muppets.
And finally, last night #s 1 & 2 asked how long our bodies stay in the ground when we die. I said for a good while, till Jesus comes to get us. #2 asked how fast Jesus could move. I said pretty fast. He thought long and hard and then said hmph even faster than me, and went on his way.
