Happy birthday, girls!


The girls turned six and nine this past week. Their birthdays are so close together that inevitably we just celebrate them at the same time, which means the same cake -- which explains the "69." No, no one is turning 69, although maybe they can dig out this photo when they do!

And here is a picture of Mouse doing the Bluffview birthday ritual of carrying the earth around the sun for every year of her life; after every year, the birthday kid gets to answer a question from the teacher. This is probably the last time we'll participate in this ritual, since Bluffview is (thankfully) phasing it out.
