7yo’s description of the school grounds on first day of school

we can walk from our neighborhood to the kids’ school.  after we get off the path, there is a fenced drainage area.  with all the rain, it is now completely grown over and the animals are loud as all get out.

7yo:  it looks like muck, smells like yuck, and sounds like frog.

and like a good neighbor….

7yo [striding on our elliptical]:  mama, do we have state farm?

me:….yes

7yo [singing]:  and like a good neighbor, state farm is there.   [looks around]

me [laughing]:  you realize that only works on tv – it’s not real.

7yo:  sure it is.  watch.  [sings] like a good neighbor, state farm is there.  [changes expression on her face and deepens her voice]  hello!

me:  [cracking up]
