Tonight we were reviewing Gabriel's Friday Folder, which includes his teacher's assessment of his work and behavior. Dave talked to Gabriel about getting a "fair" for behavior this week, instead of the usual "good." Then Dave saw that Gabriel got a '+' grade (instead of the "satisfactory" grade of 'star') on one of his worksheets, and showed him that he hadn't finished coloring and writing it.
Gabriel looked stricken and blurted out, "Things are going all wrong!"
Katrina's new trick: she says "shh!" and puts her finger up, especially when she sees this one page in a baby book.
I like it when she shh's her brothers, and they think it's hilarious.
We actually managed to get some lights put up on our Christmas tree tonight!
