Lorianne headed home for the summer today. Elizabeth was so distraught to hear Lorianne was leaving during the school day that she forgot where she was, leapt off the piano bench and landed in the box of legos. It was very difficult to keep a straight face. Luckily the only injury was rather slight.
We are happy to report that Lorianne will be back in the fall. Elizabeth wanted me to count how many days until September. Now that the canal has closed she's eager to race her plasma car with Matthew ("and I can ride my bike, Mommy!") but she is wondering whether we can't shorten summer because it is going to be SOOOOO long.
