The story: Francesco tells me that the older kids as camp won't let him touch their Bakugan cards. I tell him, if he is good I will get him his own pack. He holds up his end of the deal and we go in search of these cards. Unfortunately we can't find them, what we do find is a Rubik's Cube (do you remember those?). So, he decides instead he needs the cube more than the cards and I agreed. Of course Nicolo then "needed" more matchbox cars, since we really don't have enough already. They both took their new loot to bed that night and then to breakfast the next morning.
New loot and the book: 7/20/2011
The other part of the story is the book. It's one of those books with great pictures and not a lot of words. The kind that you have to tell the story about what is going on from the picture. They were eating breakfast with their new toys and going back and forth telling each other what was going on in the picture. It was a moment you want to last forever but can't.
They then had to get up to get dressed for school and the scene was frozen in time till them came back. It screamed "take my picture" to me, so I did.
