Her eyes were huge, as only Tori can do, and she looked at me and said, "Look Mom, my feet grew so much while I was at church that my toes grew right out of my hoses." She was completely serious.
On a school note, we have serious pen and pencil issues at this house. It doesn't seem to matter how many new ones I put in the pencil cup, they all disappear! Yesterday, I pulled out another box of pencils and started sharpening. I was soon joined by my helpers; they did a pretty good job.
And my friend, Ms. Wendy, is right - Ticonderoga pencils are the best. They sharpen well and the erasers actually erase without leaving smudges. They are worth their high-pencil price tag, unless your children lose them at the rate that mine do.
Life is an open book, fill it with hope, love, dreams and memories.
