In our house if you don't bring your clothes up to be washed on Monday, you have to launder them yourself another day of the week. Turns out no one brought their clothes up today. I am looking forward to not folding all those clothes today.

Best Friends

This is Annie. She is Ellis' best friend at school. When I ask Ellis how his day was, he always talks about Annie. Annie's mom had an appointment and let me tend her in the morning, before Kindergarten. That way she could just get on the bus with Ellis. The day before she was supposed to come play (I only told Ellis 2 days in advance.) Ellis said, "Mom. Remember that Annie was supposed to come and play?"

The teachers and the Aides at school always tell me what good friends Annie and Ellis are. Annie is like his little mother and Ellis just eats it all up.

If you look closely, you will see that Ellis is trying to put his arm around Annie but he is too short. He told Annie, "You can put your arms around me for the picture, if you want." Turns out that she wanted to at the last moment. Ellis was thrilled.

Have you looked outside lately? If you look at the sky a little after dusk, you will see a couple of bright stars; Jupiter and Venus. Jupiter is near the moon and Venus near the horizon. I told the kids when they get back to school and are asked, "What did you do during your break?" they could answer, "I looked at Jupiter and Venus, what did you do?"

Project 366 =)

I have decided to take a picture every day this year and then maybe put a scrapbook together with them or something. The picture taken today was during our Family Night. In the picture, Ellis had the lesson and knew what he wanted to do with it. Seth is just helping him remember what to say. Ellis would give scenarios about people making choices. If you answered how to react correctly, you got to wear his CTR ring. Man, that boy is cute!

My camera seems to be on it's way out. I have been having difficulty focusing lately...
