Past Highlights

I always thought these things were made up until I received a few myself. An excerpt from a child's paper (1997): Martin Luther King was a great man. He believed everybody should be treated the same even if they were different colors and religions. Some people didn't like Rev. King's ideas. One of them shot him in the head and he died. Rev. King is still dead today.

Kids do say the darndest things!
I quilt, knit, and do other such things. A few years ago my youngest son and I lived in an apartment complex that had one of it's many playgrounds on the courtyard in front of my apartment.
A few years ago I walked out the front door to call my son in for lunch, only to hear him tell his friend...."I know UFO's exist, my mom makes more of them everytime we go into that quilt shop!"

I am thinking the student needed to come up with a way to wrap it up and that is what he came up with.

Regarding my daughter, I thought she would have figured it out earlier too, but then she asked about the tooth fairy. She did confess she already knew about the Easter bunny(caught us last year) so you are probably right, The thing that makes me think she did not know, is she as been very quite thinking about it and she is rarely quiet unless something is on her mind.

I told hubby about the kleenex post and he almost spit out his soda!!!! FUNNY!!!!

My Mum was way ahead of everyone when it came to Civil Rights. Some day I will share a story with you about a lesson my Sister Edie and I learned from her many, many years ago.

That was brilliant.

That child is a mini-philosopher.

And his teacher - the lucky recipient of these pearls...

Quilly...please feel better. Come over and share some of the cheer.
