It didn’t take long for Crux’s alien powers to manifest now he was a teen, it did take us a little by surprise. It seems that Crux no longer needs to sleep, all he needs to do rejuvenate his brain power (whatever that means?).
I may need to tell him not to rejuvenate at the kitchen table, Alene was a little annoyed with him interrupting her breakfast. Loise was unconcerned but Loise has abilities of her own.
Abilities that she does not hesitate to use. I sure am going to miss her and they way she can clean the entire house with just the wave of her hands. It saves me from having to clean everything myself. Our maid is useless. I wonder why I even continue to pay her….
We had all recently recieved new phones. Dale and I tried out one of the fancy new features.
Dale claimed the photo for himself, I only saw it for a brief moment but all seemed to work fine.
Lets all forget the Lucia becomes Dale Fiasco shall we?….it all went well, really it did!!! P
It was the weekend so everyone had a little bit of time on their hands. Aisling, my star student made sure that she got her homework done early on and then spent most of the weekend reading in her room. With Loise and Alene leaving in the morning she was already starting to lay claim to their entire bedroom.
Jaem became one of the only kids to ever use the playground in the backyard.
He loved being on the lookout for anyone and everyone who walked past, if he was outdoors he was happy.
Jaem also like spending time in the pool, he was getting really creative in his use of the diving board.
That evening after everyone was tired and ready for bed, Alene and Crux where asked for bedtime stories by Jaem and Malevin.
They both helped out by putting their siblings to bed for the night. Which I appreciated.
Afterwards Crux challenged Alene to some baskteball.
Even after Crux demonstrated what she needed to do, Alene seem very unsure. I didn’t blame her.
Alene: Crux? This isn’t really my thing, maybe I should go back inside? You know, where its warm and more importantly inside!
Crux: Alene it’s easy, I’ll show you again.
Alene: Umm, yeah, that really isn’t going to help me a whole lot…..I still don’t think this is a good idea!
Crux: Just try it!
Alene: Okay, just one try. I better not fall on my butt….
Alene: Owwww! Crux, I’m totally blaming you!!
After Crux had finished embarrasing Alene on the basketball court, Alene returned inside to an activity she did enjoy. I doubt it will be long before she owns a piano of her own.
Crux however was obsessed and early the next morning he was once again to be found on the court.
Crux also had another obsession. He seemed to contantly be talking to the old mirror in the garage, and I swear that once I even heard it talk back….
After basketball and his encounter with the mirror Crux needed to restore his brain power, Alene will be relieved that it wasn’t at the kitchen table this time.
Afterwards he was back outside to spend the rest of his evening in the spa.
In the morning it was time for Alene and Loise to leave home. I was going to miss them
and not just for Loise’s cleaning ability.
I gave my girls the hugs that I desparately needed, I’ll admit that their shared evil trait had me worried.
When I went back into the kitchen after they had left, I found this photo sitting on the kitchen bench waiting for me. 🙂
AN: Just realised what the next chapter is supposed to be……why, oh why did I think that was a good idea? Oh yeah I remember….but that doesn’t mean I have to like it….. 😕
