Mom, he yelled across the street where I am sitting with Darla in our lawn chairs, guess what?
They are having a banquet for you on Sunday! For you mom!
I'm chuckling to myself, as I say Colton, I think its called a "benefit."
Yeah, thats it, he says, and Grace's mom is in charge of the whole thing!
Yes, Grace's mom, Sara, has done so much Colton, and so have lots and lots of other people.
Mom, do you think we can go? Grace will be there too!
I'm laughing now as I tell him, yes Colton, I think we should go!
Yeah, he says, turning a tad pink. I think its well established Grace and Colton have a thing for each other- its only a second grade "thing," but its still a pretty cute "thing."
Hey Mom, think they'll have food there?
Thats my boy, I think, always worried about what he will eat! Yes, I tell, him, there will be spaghetti to eat.
If possible, his voice now goes an octave higher, Spaghetti!! Mom, thats my favorite thing!! Mom, I'm so excited to go!
He races off into the house as Darla and I burst out laughing. Just wait till he sees all that they have planned for us.
Oh the innocence of second grade.
I wish I could bottle it in a jar and keep it on my window sill and sprinkle it on myself every now and then for good measure.
So this is Teri, and with her is Mark. Since Mark doesn't have a fb account, he agreed to this picture with Teri and she sent it to me. He was one of the ones I noticed at church wearing his bracelet.
This pretty card was so exquisitely made, and the cd is filled with music and singers I love, I was extremely touched to receive this from Kelly, a new blog friend. Thank you friend! So thoughtful, and it will get a ton of use!
So these mysteriously showed up at my door when I was out for a walk. Just a note from a "soon to be survivor," to another "soon to be survivor." I wonder if I'll ever know who it was? But they're the perfect thing for a girl who loves sparkle!
