[Comments] (1) In Which I Condone Lying: Maggie has learned how to keep a secret better in the last two years, but Dalton... Not so much. Here's the kids' version:

M: Dalton told Daddy about his Father's Day present!
Me: What did you say?
D: I said Snoopy!
M: I lied to him!
Me: What?
M: I lied to Daddy! I told him we didn't buy that for Daddy. *Giggle*

And then I high-fived my six year old for lying to her father.

John's version:

J: So, your son has a big mouth.
Me: What did he say? I heard the Maggie version.
J: We were talking about shows and I said "Snoopy" and he said, "Just like on your Father's Day present!" And Maggie said, "No, Dalton! He doesn't know what he's talking about. We didn't buy you that. We bought you something else. He doesn't know!" rushing on. I wished I had a video camera!

Spring Fling: Tonight we all went to the Spring Fling carnival at the school. It was a fun family outing. I pre-ordered 25 tickets for $10. The kids played some carnival games and got some junky prizes. They did the cake walk twice. The rest of the tickets went into the raffles for various themed gift baskets put together by each class, including ones with Lego sets and Disneyland tickets. Fancy!

We also got Longboards ice cream bars from the food truck and they were so delicious. We haven't really gone to any of the PTA events, mostly because they like to do movie nights after the kids are in bed. So it was fun to go do this one. I know Maggie loves when we support her activities like that.
