We went rock hunting yesterday though and that was super fun even though we didn't find much. Turns out sitting on your ass like a toddler with a sledge hammer just smashing away is pretty amusing. Ruby said, everyone here looks so sad, walking around slowly, looking at the ground. Hahah, she's too right. We went to the Herkimer diamond mine which is a bit tourist trap-y but still a cheap date for $12 and the ride out there was beautiful. Sofie couldn't go due to the last Footloose performance but we brought her home a bag of rough... she'll get the best rocks of anyone!
Last night we stayed up way too late letting Sofie read us Pottermore quizes. Somehow I got sorted into Slytherin (I regard myself as a Hufflepuff, so Hufflerin? Slytherpuff?) but got "a black bird" as my patronus - even though we all know my patronus is Ru Paul. It was really fun because Mander hadn't done any of them before. She's a full on Gryffindor.
