So, my kids do this really cute thing that they've been doing for years. It started out with just Joey doing it to help Lili but sometimes, recently, she's done it to help him, too.
When one of them needs to eat something but doesn't particularly want to, the other becomes a Troll.
The Troll is trying to steal the other kid's dinner. The Troll picks up a bite of food and tries to put it into his mouth, and the other kid leans over and tries to eat it off the fork before it makes it into the Troll's mouth. Somehow this works surprisingly well, and the reluctant-to-eat kid is happy to keep the Troll from eating her food by eating it herself.

Lili, being loved and laid on by Whisper.

Off to camp

This Boy Scout is off to his first week-long summer camp. Per Boy Scout custom, he organized and packed all his gear himself. He was a bit nervous, and very excited for his first week away. He's done three weekend camping trips so far, so he knows how it goes, but this is the first longer one.
Lili will really miss him; he's only been gone 45 minutes and already she is "really bored with no one to play with."
I know he will have a wonderful time camping! We will all be happy to hear his stories when he gets back.

Joey and Lili with their teachers this year.

Last day of school

Today was Joey's and Lili's last day of school. For Joey, it was his last day of elementary school; for Lili, her last day of second grade.
Here are pictures of them from the first day and the last day this school year.
