she loves owls…

Well, the weatherman was right, we did indeed get 2 cooler days, and they were bliss. We spent them bundles in sweats and taking long walks, then coming home and reading aloud. The Professor had a prior commitment, so we spent a long day in our own pursuits, and even managed to fit in an episode of Grey’s ! We drank tea, talked about the future, and ate popcorn. It was lovely, and such a happy day.

The Professor also had a treat in store for my foxling…  he took her to 6 Flags ! They spent about 9 hours riding coasters, whirly-slams and all manner of drop-you-downs, stopping only when the park closed. To say she loved it would be the understatement of the century, and she has given me a play-by-play recounting of the entire day ! She was energized, wind blown, exhausted and in a sugar-induced stupor when they arrived home, and I have never seen her more happy. She is certainly a thrill-seeker, and I am so happy her first experience at a large amusement park was so perfect.

In other news, The Historian has been working so diligently on her studies that we took her to the local bookstore to pick out some much-needed supplies for the coming semester. Her eyes began to glow and she squealed as she saw the piles of brightly colored goodies lining the center tables. She took her time, choosing carefully amongst the wide array of notebooks, binders and cases. Almost everything she got was covered in owls, which she tells me is now her favorite animal and bird. I love the retro look of what she got, and it was sheer joy to watch her decorate the inside covers in anticipation of her first classes. She smiles and tells us she is the luckiest girl in the world, and we are happy it takes so little to bring such a sentiment to her lips. She is a good girl, and we are lucky to have her. =)
