Evan and Sage are big now, but they're still saying things.

Sage: "Eating these grapes is quenching both my hunger and my thirst."

Eric: "Hunger can't really be 'quenched.' It can be sated, or satiated."

Sage: "My need for English lessons has been quenched."

with the bathwater

Eric: "You were a good big brother from the beginning, Evan. I have a picture of you holding your new sister Sage on the day she was born."

Evan: "Yeah, but I was kind of tempted to throw her out the window."

Sage: "That is both offensive and funny."

egg hunt

Evan: "Who do you think will be the first woman president?"

Eric: "I don't know. Maybe Hillary Clinton."

Evan: "Do you think Bill Clinton will have a lot of power?"

Eric: "Probably not a lot of power."

Sonja: "But he'll certainly enjoy being back in the White House."

Evan: "Yeah, like, 'Here's where I hid that deviled egg at that party. Man, that was a terrible deviled egg. Hey, it's still here!'"

"I'm taking out the lava pits and putting in a playground." -- Evan, redesigning his prison on the computer game Minecraft

highlight reel

Sage scored twice in this morning's b-ball game. Here she is moving well without the ball and knocking down the open jumper. (Warning: if you're not a blood relative of Sage's, this is 39 seconds of your life you'll never have back.)

Evan: "Will you please make Sage stop singing not-very-good gibberish?"
