(A little background - She forgot to bring home her writing notebook and her spelling words home with her the night before. But she assured me that she could do the work in the morning before school started. She usually gets there early enough for me to be comfortable with this solution. I also explained to her that this was not to be a normal operating procedure. She said she agreed.)
Me: Melissa, did you do your homework this morning? You know, the assignment that you forgot to bring home?
Melissa: No. I didn't have time. My teacher didn't look at the homework today. She is going to check it out tomorrow. I will do it tonight. I guess that will cut it.
Translation - "She'll never know. I can get away with it."
Oh, the mind of an 8 year old con artist.

This is one of those purse sized 4x6 albums you can get for a buck at WalMart or the Dollar Tree. So far, I am loving it. I am still searching for Halloween pics from 1996, 1997 and 1999. I have pics all over the house. I am working on getting them all together. But, I also have three little girls who LOVE photos. So I am finding them in places I KNOW I haven't put them. Like under their beds, in their nightstands, in their toyboxes....
Now, to get those journal pages scanned...............

Dinner was Chik-fil-A. I slaved over a long drive thru line to feed the family tonight. Everyone was very contented with their meals. (big smile for me)

Funny how things turn around. They couldn't wait to ride the bus to school. This was the cause of tears around our house for quite some time. NOW, they are in a snit if they DON'T get to walk. ???????
