Fresh Air–Day 6

The girls spent their morning playing together.  While they were preoccupied and giggly, I prepared a surprise tea party luncheon.  Once I had everything ready I told them to go find their white gloves, hats, scarves and fans.   The three came back as a very eclectic group, grins.

The mysterious Ms. Olivia.

The Menu:

Dinosaur Shaped Chicken Nuggets

Fruit Salad

Hot Tea

The girls had a lovely time acting all snooty.

We discovered that, despite her claims to having tea at home all the time, Ty`Nique does not in fact like tea.

Once the refreshments were finished, the girls taught Ty`Nique the proper way to decline a tea refill.  For the record, this is to be done with an empty cup, not a mostly full one, ahem.

The girls then retired to the sun porch where Ms. Olivia and Ms. Lindsey taught Ms. Ty`Nique the proper way to curtsey and to waltz.

We then lost a bit of formality, as we returned to the kitchen to make beaded bracelets.

The girls had a couple of hours of downtime and then it was off to the county fair!  So far this week we’ve learned that Ty`Nique doesn’t like animals, dirt, the woods, the park or tea…and I’m guessing by her body language, and the look on her face that clowns aren’t a favorite either.

Ty`Nique does however like rides.  Although we had to work on the concept of getting in the back of the line instead of cutting to the front.

We had to divide up since our girls wanted to go to the petting zoo and the livestock barns.  Ty`Nique just crinkles up her nose and says it’s dirty and smelly.   Although, I’m quite certain that New York City is not always the cleanest and best smelling place in the world either.

Some of the shows were lame, VERY lame.  The acrobats were really good, although that freaked Ty`Nique out as well and she walked out, and I walked her right back in…because really it’s not all about one person when you have 5 who have paid to be there.
