Tasha- Poppy explained to me after her sandpit run “I think I just got a speeding ticket”
Jess- When I asked what Poppy was going to focus on she responded “being like Jimmy”
– Eli later asked me what to do if a squirrel ran onto the course while he was racing and then he followed up by saying “never mind…I did that distraction training”
– During cooking Shea sneezed with “Ah-Chia” and later stirred his banana bread mix while explaining “this is how Rachel Ray does it”
Doug- I challenged Maddie G to take a spoonful of puréed Black beans and she replied “no but I will eat a spoonful of chocolate chips”
