A long, long time

Last weekend, Linzy had a bunch of friends over to work on planning a wedding. As it happened, Felicia and Gerard's little sister Kendra came over as well, with Anita.

Anita has been to our house before for a number of the parties, but that makes it pretty easy to find the house since there are all kinds of cars parked out front, a bunch of lights on, and people milling around in the living room. In the middle of the afternoon on Saturday, however, there's not quite the same crowd hanging out at our house.

Anyway, the bottom line is that Anita was not 100% sure which house was our, and was trying to figure out which house was the right one while driving slowly down the block. Kendra, being a third grader, was exasperated by this delay:

Kendra: It's that one right there.
Anita: Are you sure?
Kendra: Of course. I've been coming here since second grade!

Now, when reading that, you have to pronounce 'second grade' as "practically my entire life" and add a suitably exasperated tone to it.

Of course, Kendra was right about which house it was, and she's actually been coming over for a bit longer then just a year, but I thought it was funny that in her mind she's been coming here forever.

Once they found the right house, Kendra and I had fun playing games while the girls debated centerpieces.
