Ivy has had more homework this week than perhaps the entire previous Kindergarten homework combined: A farm animal report (Ivy chose to report on horses), and a Star Student report (all about Ivy). Do you see the 3-D nature of her Horse poster? I hope she gets extra credit for that. It also has googly eyes that are quite frightening.

Hope you had a wonderful day with your loved ones too! :)
This one from Adam's cousin Daniel sums it up pretty well:
In Cairo they’re having a riot.
Our hotel was really right by it.
It’ll kill Egypt’s biz,
But the funny thing is,
I swear I heard Janet prophesy it.
In Luxor on hard airport chairs,
The Muirs sit while time on them wears,
Ehab fights with his might
To reschedule their flight,
But at EgyptAir, nobody cares.
These from a fellow traveller Thelma paint quite a picture:
Why sleep on the airport floor,
A position we all abhor?
‘Cause we didn’t arrive
Until close to five
And the curfew began at four.
The noise of the vast airport crowd
Lends a whole new meaning to “loud,”
And the way we’re compressed
From belly to chest
Would make a sardine packer proud.

Stop the presses! It appears I ended our contest one day too early! Postmarked February 3rd, received February 8th, we have a clear and unrivaled winner, the Rucker family.
Turns out a tent was not enough for our diva-esque citrus tree. An electric blanket was underneath to keep it nice and toasty warm.
