Overheard at G2 . . .
I am so happy it’s Wednesday
I missed you
Want to see what I can do?
Actually this project is for you!
Would you like to help with that?
Maybe next time.
Will you teach me how?
These are not blocks… they’re pets
OK, this is for the championship
See this button? It makes the car fly.
I think that is wonderful
Here is your cupcake, (whispering) but don’t really eat it
Here, you be this guy
Look what you did all by yourself!
I’ll follow your lead
I like that even better
In this game, I actually get two turns
Whoa! How did you do that?
I bet you that’s enough scotch tape
Wait you play this when you were little?
We have time to play one more thing
Let’s clean up together
I love you
See you next time
I can’t wait
I have a mustache just like yours
