I took the kids out for no-school lunch today. We eat our delicious Thai. The bill comes. I rummage in my purse for my money. Uh. It's at home in my coat pocket. Yep. Uh huh. That really embarrassing thing that you hope never happens. Happened. Luckily, they know us all by name and the owner laughed it off and said we're welcome without money anytime. Thankfully, I had a crumpled check floating in my purse that he accepted even though they don't accept them. Pays to be a loyal customer. Oh. And we broke a glass the second we sat down. I tipped well. With my old-fashioned money.

"Real" school wasn't in session today. The Three Nerds spent the morning reading chess directions and watching how-to clips on youtube. The older two know what each piece is and how it can move. That's more than I've learned in nearly 30 years. I love the lighting of this cruddy phone pic. I love the bunny holding down the game. I love N&A mimicking mannerisms. This picture makes me really, really happy. They had been signed up for after-school chess club but it was canceled due to lack of interest. Major bummer. I mean, how funny is this: Avrie in chess club. A regular riot, right!?
