It's a good thing Brenna doesn't read the blog yet. I'd be in trouble for telling another story. Her one complaint about her recent trip to Ohio was that everyone kept telling stories about her and it made her "nervous". (I think she meant embarrassed.) I'm sure this one has had many a retelling over the last few days.
I packed a backpack full of activities to keep her busy during the 8 hour trip north. She doesn't mind traveling, but I wanted to make sure she had some things to do. It was a vain attempt to limit the "Hey, Papa?"s. I don't think it worked.
One thing I included was a set of US Presidents cards. They were mine long ago, so a few are missing and the more recent ones aren't in the set. Brenna got them out and my dad started calling out presidents for her to find. All was going well, until he asked for one she couldn't find. It was getting dark outside and she was having some trouble seeing.
He said, "Did you find it yet?"
She answered, "No. But I found Useless."
