Today was her last day of "real" school...she walks out the door to graduate into
first grade at Gus Birdwell Elementary
on this day her mother had a 7 am meeting, so I took her to school
her mom is a health nut and a very doting mom who has packed a plentitude of healthy lunches
all. year. long.
but today...she is so excited because she
gets to eat, finally...FINALLY...today
she will be allowed to eat
when she got home I asked her what she chose to eat
chips? salsa? cheeze dip? hot dog?
NO...there was no more olive cart...it ended last week
Talk about a huge lesson...she didn't fuss, cry, plead or moan...
she just said
"the olive cart ended last week, so I ate spaghetti"
Today we will begin our 2nd Annual Me N B N Betty Vacation
we had planned to go to OKC
a perfect vacation that is only less than 4 hours from our house with lots of fun and historical things to explore and do for a youngster...
Needless to say...we are driving a different direction
but we live in tornado alley too...so
as you begin this summer my dear friends...please take care, because we are all in some sort of peril in our crazy world...no one is immune...
take a bit of time to feel the sun on your face
count your blessings
and have the attitude
"so what about the
when you can eat spaghetti"
