As I said in my last post, it will surprise no one if Helen becomes a teacher. Yeah, sure, she vigorously denies this possibility herself ("I want to be an ARTIST"), but come on, her favorite game right now is playing school:
|Class is in session. She calls them The Children. As in, "The Children are having recess now, so I can brush my teeth."|
|She works very hard at it, since she has to be both teacher and nine students.|
|The subjects are spelling, gymnastics, soccer and drawing.|
She has not missed Silas at all this week, by the way. Or claims not to. "Do you like getting all of our attention all to yourself?" I asked as she rode her scooter to the bus. "Yesssss," she answered, cackling a little.
I miss him, though. He'll be home tonight. Then all my chickens will be under my roof.
