Yes, that’s right.
They came home again.
In their tiny, shiny little elf shoes.
That hurt their feet and are too small but they would never dare complain or ask for the right size because the only authority they ever challenge is mine.
So with blisters and in their required ASU (Army Service Uniforms) they blessed us with their presence.
For a whirlwind visit.
To do this.
Because she can’t text at school.*
Because she can’t use Facebook at school.*
*Not true. They can do both at school!
And to pick up their basketball shoes, a few pairs of shorts and t-shirts and head back to campus.
We did go to lunch and enjoy folded ear pasta.
Then they pet their dogs, hugged Scary Baby and said goodbye. Then Sabu jumped in their car and tried to
ride drive back with them.

Because luckily I was just sitting around at home hoping I could help her.
Isn’t she precious?
The paper was on poetry which created a little bit of healthy stress for her.
I know my role here.
And luckily, she and I both know it’s not help with math.
Side note: We are actually looking forward to them coming home for the Labor Day holiday weekend.
See you soon, darling twins!
