We’ve been receiving lots and lots of text messages lately. . . no, not the kind you check on your phone. . .much much better than that. Thomas has been delivering all sorts of notes. . .
“Put the marker tops back on!!” This was the sign he posted on the arts and crafts door. Sadie Ellen forgets to put the marker tops on and it drives him crazy when his markers are dried out. . .

By the way, sorry I’ve been m.i.a. lately. My computer was sent off for a new motherboard – and that was oh so much fun, let me tell you. No computer for two weeks.
