Today we drove to Westlake Village to pick up the Land Cruiser for the big CenAm journey. Gregg drove it home and the girls and I slowly meandered home in the Volvo, stopping for lunch and at a store to buy notebooks for my journal, finally driving Mullholland to Old Topanga, a pretty ride after all the rain. The girls were in a great mood and laughing and sharing stories in the back. At one point I heard Alex laugh and say, "Oh Greggie! You are the bean in a jelly bean!"
Then Alex said to me, "Mother, Greggie is putting the stickers [the checkout lady at the book store gave them stickers] over her eyes!" She turned to Gregorie and said, "I just love you Greggie! You make me laugh so much!"
Gregorie giggled and Alex said, "Oh, you are SUCH a blonde!"
