|Splendiferotwins Brianna and Tori|
I clearly remember my eighth grade English teacher having us try to define the word 'nice' one day in class. When none of us could do so to her satisfaction, she then directed us to never ever again use that word in our writings or our conversations.
MY grandchildren are not just grand - that's not a true description of their greatness. I think they are tremendous. Splendiferous.
Perhaps, they should be called tremendokids. Or splendiferokids.
Anyway, news has been rolling in almost daily from all of them.
Twins Brianna and Tori began third grade yesterday, and yes, Brianna is still in her wrist cast for a few more days.
There may be some double trouble ahead, as they tell me they are in the same classroom. However, they've also met the teacher already, who they assure me is very old and very experienced.
On an aside note, and speaking of ugly trouble, I'm still being plagued by this three-weeks-now-and-I-declare-enough-is-enough case of poison ivy. I still don't know where or how I picked it up, but numerous over the counter remedies are just not really helping. I've resigned myself to the reality that it will just have to run its course like it always has in the past.
Trying to distract myself from the incessant itching, I've been ordering and reading books like they are going out of style. Wouldn't it be fun to have one of these "reading rooms?"

Finally, tremendokid Jarrod, merely one short month away from obtaining his Driver's Learning Permit, is getting an education of another sort. He has learned that his auto insurance will be approximately $110 per month, added onto his parents' policy. Welcome to the real world, Jarrod. Don't quit your part time job.
That's the report from this corner of the world, folks. Watch for some future blog posts of some of our funglorious summer adventures with our splendiferokiddos.
