My dad has had the pleasure of the kid's company at the cottage for another week.
They come home tomorrow.
We've talked to her, in depth, every day. Sometimes several times.
Tonight she asked me about her "electronics" meaning her Nintendo DS and (used, old) ipod. She never checked her knapsack. Which means my poor father hasn't had a break all week! Except for her swimming lessons but I think they caused more chatter.
Now I totally understand why he said he'd drop her off "as early as possible" tomorrow.
