    April 16, 2009 by Brandy Vencel

    Yesterday’s TEA Party meant our little brood was out and about. Near people. Most of us are introverts here. This means that we had trouble staying awake on the way home and there was no arguing once we arrived except as resulted from a race to see who could get to take a nap first.

    I won.

    Just kidding.

    Good job, Daddy.!
    for telling the people what you had
    written down on the paper. even when you were
    embarrassed to talk in front of a lot of people.

    to! Daddy!

    famous!!

    Good job! E
