while the parents are away

So my parents are out of town for 10 days. There! I said that one thing that children are never supposed to tell strangers: I am home alone. Well, I'm not really home alone, my 3 brothers are here with me and they could totally beat you up if you tried to break in! Two of them are black belts in Tae Kwon Do, you know. Just sayin'...

While the parents are gone I am in charge of making dinner and so far it has been a breeze! The first day we all just snacked so when dinner time rolled around no one was hungry, then Saturday night we got invited over to a friend's house, then today at church someone else invited us over! The fates have been smiling upon us (well mostly me, I suppose). But seriously, how nice of people to invite us over! They totally didn't have to, didn't necessarily know that our parents were gone and we had to fend for ourselves, but they listened to the spirit and went outside of themselves to offer some service. Pretty great.

Tomorrow my friend Katie, who I haven't seen in for-ev-er, is coming over for dinner and she is going to help with the cooking of...whatever it is I decide we're going to have. Garrett is going to show us how to make corn on the cob by cooking it in bbq coals and I am pretty excited about it. I love corn! Also Katie.
