The Cat in the Hat Came Back
Jay came for dinner and a visit before he left for college. He stayed to witness both dinner and the bedtime routine; after two years of listening to me explain why I have no free time, am always tired, and don't ever get to watch TV, he finally understood why I am utterly exhausted by 8:00 pm. Two years of tutoring give back. Bless his heart: he gave us a huge break by reading one of Duncan's bedtime books that night. See the crazed look in Duncan's eyes? For some reason, Jay makes him insane; when Jay and Duncan are in the same room, Duncan thinks anything either of them does is hysterically funny. We hope Jay will come back to visit soon; oral reading is optional.
