1) I'm happy to announce that I feel like I am gaining a handful of friends here in Texas. I use a very strict measuring system to gauge whether or not someone is a friend. I ask myself the following question: If I had a laundry sheet coming out of my pants, do I think this person would tell me? If the answer is "Yes", then we are on our way to friendship necklaces!
2). Nora had Manners Day at school this week. All the kids were to get dressed up and use their best manners. The school did things like put nice tablecloths on the cafeteria tables, had classical music playing, etc. Nora explained it well. She said: Today, if we make a gross noise we do not laugh, we just say "please excuse me".
3.) You know how we all have random things our brains just can't get right? For me I always spell the word entrance 'enterance'. Everything else in life I totally get. (Except for math and why there is braille writing on random walls that no visually impaired person would know to just go and check.) Well, for my husband it's his inability to say Canada correctly. If he's talking quickly, he almost always pronounces it 'Canadia'. This brings me joy. He has recently taken a business trip to Canadia and I've enjoyed watching him slowly say the word so that he says it correctly.
4.) September is Craniofacial awareness month! Hurray! I'm going to celebrate by adding an Operation Smile page to my blog this week.
Here is my favorite cleftie kiddo.
That's enough for today kids.
