The kids are dizzy with delight because they've been asked to be flower girls. The seven year old, who has done this before, is holding flower girl classes for the three year old. They're using a basket full of beanie babies as a stand in for the petals.

The classes come complete with report cards, the first of which read "N" (the helpful key included translated this to, reasonably enough, "needs improvement").

What did she do wrong? I inquired.

Apparently, she has a tendency to fling the "petals" forward rather than dropping them daintily on the floor. She also throws like a boy and the seven year old, who has experienced the power of her curveball, is concerned the bride will be bruised.

Luckily (or unluckily) they have three and a half months to practice.
