The boys had a good weekend of football and movies and raking at camp and homework. We even planned the first day in Chicago. But then the highlight of the weekend had to have been Simon's second hair cut. When things started to fall apart on Simon's head, Rich resorted to good wine, and that made everything look better!

We heat in the evenings with pellets. The fire glows and brings the temperature on the first floor to a toasty temperature. At first, hiding in the tree, Jan and Simon [playfully] rejected the notion of lifting 3 tons of pellets into the house with me. But once I enticed them with promises of McDonald's Milkshake... wham, the pellets were away. Obviously, the boys were quite willing to carry the pellets in, but we writers like to embellish.

The boys have a math vocabulary quiz today. We studied last night playing a "Math Bowl" game show with the loser of each round having to do chores like carrying in pellets for the stove. This morning, 20 more minutes of review over cereal.

Friends at the high school celebrated Simon Day by ticking their pants into their socks. We did the same at the University of Maine! Here's Rich in the hallways of his building at UMaine. A good look, don't you think?
