Alicia, Shmoo's best friend, turned six yesterday. That morning, her mom contacted me, asking whether they could pick both kids up from Kindergarten and take Shmoo out to eat with them to celebrate Alicia's birthday. After running it by HPR, I agreed.* We both predicted (correctly) that Shmoo wouldn't like the surprise switch in plans, but that he would be fine.
Alicia's mom livestreamed the date! I posted one photo on facebook, but thought I'd put the other here.
Alicia's mom said Alicia wants to go to the same college as Shmoo. The subtext is that she heard people often meet their spouse at college. She's a planner!
And here is Shmoo's picture of his friend. Too bad her name isn't spelled phonetically.
*It was actually quite convenient, because I'm still sick and the two-mile round trip to school by bike/foot is a bit much for me at the moment. But I went to the doctor today and she gave me an antibiotic scrip to fight what apparently is bronchitis.
