I came home the other day and found my kids watching this on Youtube . . . over and over and over again. See also Snape's Diary, my personal favorite.

My sister Lisa took these pictures at the Sesame Street exhibit at the Brooklyn Public Library. I haven't seen the exhibit yet, but Lisa reports that they have some of the older muppets on display, including Sherlock Hemlock and Roosevelt Franklin. Here are the exhibit details. (Thanks, Lisa!)

Next week we are moving to an apartment in Kew Gardens, which means that this week we are frantically packing! While packing, I came across many projects that my kids made here at 103-11 68th Drive. Here are some of my favorites. This will also serve as an explanation for why we will not get our security deposit back. (Sorry, Bob.)

I should mention that the sewing was long overdue. The afternoon before the first Girl Scout meeting, I realized that I had forgotten to sew on the patches. Desperate and mildly ashamed, I stapled the patches to the vests. My older daughter was fine with this, but my younger daughter was silent and forlorn. I asked her what the problem was, and said "I'm embarrassed!" I assured her that the stapling was temporary, and promised that I would properly sew the patches in time for the next meeting. Which, in fact, I did.
So now, with clear conscience, I can return to my First Amendment project. In the mean time, please feel free to inspect my fine stitchery.
