1. The Deke is on the disabled list with a mysterious knee injury -- it just gave out and she is on crutches-- so I not only took her to school today, I was her teaching assistant in the classroom. I enjoyed reading aloud to the whole class from Cracker! The Best Dog in Vietnam and having a private reading session with Habibatou. I helped her with her reading of Little House on the Prairie.
2. The Deke and I discussed our day at school at Billy Mac's over a generous hummus plate and a couple of drinks.
3. Later at Billy Mac's, our table celebrated Allie's birthday with the arrival of a chocolate cream pie emblazoned with five candles. Allie was wide-eyed and happy!
