What not to wear

What a glorious day!  Seriously...75 degrees in mid-March?  We enjoyed a full day today...parent conferences for McKenna (she's doing well, no surprise), a special morning just with McKenna (Barnes and Noble--that's my girl!, a picnic, and time at the park), a perfect day at the zoo with all the kiddos, and more running around in the yard.  It was great.  Just great.  

However, if I ever had the chance to do-over the day, I'd reconsider the wardrobes.  On a beautiful St. Patrick's Day, I wouldn't take three kids to the zoo who were wearing green t-shirts.  EVERY kid at the zoo was wearing a green t-shirt.  It would be have been much easier to ID them in a crowd if they had been wearing red.

In every sense of the word

I'm pretty sure I define "non-traditional college student".  The Friday that spring break starts, what am I doing but being at home at 7:30...with my pajamas on...and LOVING IT!

I'll laugh about this one for years!

Samuel's MDO teachers were teaching about Jesus' miracles last week.  They thought that perhaps the kids might not know what wine was, so they decided that for the purpose of having the kids understand that the water became a different kind of drink, they would substitute "kool-aid" for the wine.  They are telling the story, they talk about the the water turning into kool-aid, and Samuel yells out, "MY MOM CAN DO THAT!"
