After viewing my pictures of Twins Fest, my student wanted to know if I play on the same team as the Twins. She pointed out that I was in fact wearing the same shirt as them. I realize how misleading this might be (specifically to a five year old from Africa), so in case any of the rest of you were wondering, I am not in fact a MN Twin. Rather, I am a Twins fan. Almost the same. But different.
Speaking of Twins players, I am sad to report that I did not follow through on my promise to make paper dolls to help me correctly identify the players in their street clothes. I did however go with a less creepy option and play a rousing game of, “Name that Twins player” using google images. It is like the tech-savvy version of flashcards. I failed miserably by the way. I am doing better on some parts of my vacation preparation list though, so you can still be proud of me! Look! Tiffany and I made a paper chain! (the only tricky thing is knowing if it is my turn to take off a link. I had to count it out tonight to check, and honestly I’m still not sure!) Regardless, when we get to the end, I’m going to the airport – so I hope it works out and we finish on the day of our flight!
