We were lucky enough to be invited to hit our neighbour's birthday pinata over lunch today. Michael was over the moon when he hit the pinata and TWO pieces of candy fell out. Elizabeth practiced her tornado kicks rather than using a stick so as to not destroy the pinata right away (but then it turned out to be pretty sturdy in the end).
They enjoyed so much that Elizabeth deliberately didn't go to class on time. This NEVER happens, especially right now when they get points for showing up early and doing goofy things like sitting with their backs to the camera until their name is called, wearing various articles of clothing or bringing ice cream to class. (After the last ice cream Elizabeth told me "this is why I adore virtual school" LOL). Anyway, apparently the pinata was even better than being in class on time.
