Regan was with Grandma and Grandpa Joy at Chuck-O-Rama and they bumped into an old friend of Tom's. After a minute Tom introduces Regan. The friend said, "I'm gonna marry you". Regan looked shocked and immediately retorted, "You'll be dead when I'm old enough to get married!" Tom and Virginia laughed so hard and Tom jokingly told Regan she ought to go tell his wife that he wanted to marry her. Humor is lost on Regan, and so she went right up to his wife and told her. What a girl!

Regan is super excited for 2nd grade to start. She has been reading like crazy this summer and is reading at a 3+ grade reading level. Her biggest punishment would be to not let her read. She still has a passion for all things nature and animals and would like to be a farmer, or a wildlife biologist, or an animal human(?). She said an animal human is someone that protects animals from harm. Isn't that an animal rights activist? PETA? Heaven help me!

I was looking on Amazon.com for a nature book for Regan. On the cover was a bird.
Regan: That's a kiwi bird!
Me: How do you know?
Regan: Mom, I just know.
Me: Well is that other thing a grapefruit rat?
Regan: No silly! There's no such thing as grapefruit rats.
Me: Then how do you know there's a kiwi bird?
Regan: It's in my bird book. I'll show you.
There it was...in all it's glory...the kiwi bird. She is sharp as a tack and has a great memory. Man I hope she doesn't remember everything!
