When M decided to give K a trip to the New England Aquarium for her family Christmas gift, Dan was really not sure – aren’t Christmas gifts supposed to come in a box and be played with?

My argument that if it doesn’t come in a box you never have to store it didn’t go over so well, I think he really worried that it was more of a gift to him.

We finally found a time when Dan’s work projects were at a good spot, and K wasn’t sick.

And off they went.

And yes, they did eat GLUTEN.

Thanks to my stellar organization skills, it was on the first day of co-op – my calendar did not have the note that we had changed the co-op date from when we first planned it, I just e-mailed it to everyone else.

You can see why my Mom still wonders why on Earth I take on administration jobs in the volunteer world.

But K was calm about it, and co-op went fine.
