No pockets...

...no problem.
 
We had our Grandlittle's over after school yesterday.  
 
The weather is still quite lovely here (ssssshhhh...don't tell the Arizona triple digit demons) and we decided to take the three bubbly little girls to the park.
 
"Oh my gosh, I don't have any pockets," the middle Grandlittle shouted in dismay.
 
"Why do you need pockets?   We're just going to the park!" I told her.
 
"Grandma!   You DON'T UNderSTanD!   I need pockets!"
 
She thought for a second and I actually saw a light bulb go off on her face.
 
She ran down the hall towards my office and I herded everyone else toward their scooters.
 
When we got to the park, the middle girl had a very mischievious look on her face.

 
 
 
Aha!
 
Apparently she needed pockets to transport a 'park-size' supply of Werthers candies.
 
Mr. Jenny and I laughed so hard!
 
They say necessity is the mother of invention...I can see how candy is a compelling need for our nine year old sweetie!
 
The other two girls didn't disappoint in the creative streak either.
 
Mo and Grandpa made a monogram out of those little plastic BB's...
 
 
 
After the oldest one hung upside down for awhile, she found a piece of cardboard.
 
I almost fell off the bench, though, when she announced loudly,
 
"Look!   Look!  I am a prairie schooner!"
 
 
Fun days at our house.
 
And it will be an even funner day today
 
BECAUSE
 
We are going back to the proving grounds.
 
Our contact there told us that we are now allowed to pick through and fire hydrants AND that he found a bunch of Harley Davidson signs that we might like.
 
Apparently HD did a lot of development on those test grounds!
 
I'll update you tomorrow on what we find today! 
 
Unless we get cancelled on again!
 
Happy Thursday!

Ha! Taped Werthers! I love it. At first glance, I thought she had stitches, but she looked too happy. Then as I looked more closely, I saw the makeshift "pocket". I'm still laughing.

Ms. A said...

They are sure growing... and I see the "arm" is working just fine.

Children are ingenious when they want to be, but come up with a zillion excuses when we want them to be. he he

What a clever little girl! So funny. I did begin to crave Werther's after reading this. The power of suggestion. :)
