Harvest Festival:  Fall is here, enjoy the Harvest Festival photos and Happy Hauntings!

Will Ava Ever Be a Hawk?  I’m watching football with Ava, and she tells me, “Dad, I don’t ever want to play football.” I ask, “Why?” She says, “It’s too easy to be injured.” So there goes my dream of raising the first female NFL star.   

Picture Day:  On photo day at Edmonds Elementary Kaya lost a tooth, thus she didn’t want to go to school and have her picture. I asked, “Why? She said, “I want to wait until my tooth grows back!”

Boogers vs. Vomit:  Because of a shortage of girls, Sno-King combined 3rd and 4th graders. Ava and Gia wanted to play with their friends and thus are on rival teams: Ava’s Tigers vs. Gia’s Green Dragons. The Tigers’ uniforms are orange, and Gia’s, well, you can guess. The week of the big game became a war, the rival grew nastier, and by game time it was the Green Boogers vs. the Orange Vomit. Final score, Vomit – 4, Boogers – 1. The Green Dragons, as third graders playing fourth graders, did very good to stay in the game.

The Inappropriate Cup:  One morning, as Terry started the day with coffee, Ava saw my cup and blurted, “‘Write like a motherf****r!'” Mom said, “What? What did you just say?” Ava said, “I’m just reading Dad’s cup.” So Mom said, “Dad????!!!!!” I said, “It’s my writer’s cup.” Ava said, “Dad, you have an inappropriate cup!” I bought the cup at AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Programs) conference, an homage to Cheryl Strayed’s “Dear Sugar” column at The Rumpus.  Somehow I thought the girls wouldn’t read the small print.
