Went to a party at our friends Stephen and Anna-Liza's yesterday. Came come in love with their house, convinced that all parties should be measured by whether or not there was live hurdy-gurdy music, and sure that we don't actually have enough books.
The children were all marvelous at the party, meaning that I mostly didn't see them because they were too busy off playing, and when they got home they were unsleeping and awful. But I have coffee and the girls are about to go on a trip with Geoff's parents and while they're gone I'll drink coffee, clean the house, and do phonics and math. Lots of coffee. Lots.
