First and foremost, we are announcing the winner of the "which is scariest?" contest! Thanks to all who voted! Alek prepared the drawing and he selected two winners: Grandma, and Zoey!
We will be sending samples of indigenous candy to the winners this week. Zoey, we will send yours to you at Margaret's house, and include a view extras for the other kids!
We had school conferences today, and in part to celebrate the boys' very positive school reports, Mom whipped up a batch of cheesesteaks tonight. For those of you who have only recently joined us, Philly cheesesteaks are Max's favorite food by a mile. I combined a bakery baguette, Australian beef sliced thin, and some mozzarella (provolone is the preferred format, but we haven't found that here).
Hugo said it tasted just like Jingo's. I mean, Geno's, the famous steak place in Philly. I think that is a compliment, but unlike Geno's, I allowed my boys to discuss their cheesesteaks in Japanese, if they wanted.
In fact, because we can't ever have a meal that all three boys want to eat, Alek chose to learn how to say, "cheezu staakie ga suki ja arimasen."
p.s. We are already down to two fish.
