Christmas keeps coming
Mary's parents are in town with a pile of Christmas gifts. Lucy has talked us into letting her open one gift a night. The big night is supposed to be Friday. Who knows if there will be anything left under the tree. So far she has 4 new Junie B. Jones books and the sweatshirt seen above. Her grandparents also brought home a globe circa 1940 from an antique shop yesterday. It has one of those time dials on the north pole so you can tell what time it is anywhere in the world. "What time is it in Germany? What time is it in Iowa? What time is it in Australia?"
"You know Lucy," I said. "It's always bedtime somewhere." She didn't get it.
