They started high school this year! And the four of us have forged a firm committment to keeping the friendship strong and hearty despite the fact that our girls are at different schools. As luck would have it, both schools are walking distance from the lovely Beth's home, so yesterday when I had a late meeting and Bill couldn't fetch Clara, we arranged for her to walk over to Anneke's and hang out until I was done.
It's just so chock full of bonuses! It's an easy walk, Anneke met her along the way, Clara stole a change of clothes as per (she dresses for A/C classrooms but it's 9million degrees out, always), and after a long day at work I scored a visit and a beer with my friend Beth while being entertained by our weird daughters.
When they started behaving bizarrely, I wielded my phone camera and told them I needed blog fodder. Specifically, I said: "Whatever you do, I have consent to post on my blog. Beth is my witness."
This is what they did

When we got in the car to go home, Clara asked to see/edit the photos.
No way, baby girl.
You gave consent.
