Madd Max Meet The Prize Ball

Toby and Taisie are leaving tomorrow to head to Panama and then NH for the summer and fall.  They brought over prize balls, a first at the Kender-Page.  They helped distract from the we-will-miss-you-terribly feelings.

Madd Max Have A Sleepover And More

 After a night over at the Findleys - a car ride with some added comforting.  After all, there is pain in being the only one who still has to ride in a car seat.
(A sleepover because the Findley parents were at the season finale of SNL - where Drew was working with the musical guest).
Followed by a birthday party for Elizabeth.
 Petal tossing in the backyard with Aeryn.

Madd Max Has A School Open House

In Max's classroom:  I think I can beat Plants vs. Zombies.
Some of his fine work.
And what impressed Jess the most - the Butterfly Life Cycle done in pasta: Conchigliette = Egg / Rotini = Caterpillar / Shells = Chrysalis / Bowtie = Butterfly.
In Maddie's classroom: her self portrait.
