Two sets of shoes.
Which belongs to which son?
|Oldest Son has two game jerseys and the camouflage baseball one is just plain cool. The pink ribbon stands out in the "heart of Texas."|
It is both a blessing
And a curse
To feel everything
So very deeply.
Tonight I attended the Immigration Response Meeting: Temple is working with Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins' office and Dallas Area Interfaith to address the crisis created by unaccompanied children fleeing violence in Latin America. This is an informational meeting to have a say in Temple's response.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever does.

How wonderful it is that no one need wait a single moment to start to improve the world.
|YOUNGEST SON: Created a trail of feta cheese with a string tied to one piece at the end. I guess the plan was to sit up all night until the mouse was fooled??? And bang it to death???? I kindly told him to sweep it up and that would not really work. The white bits are mostly paint - have I mentioned the remodel?|
|OLDEST SON: Created a bowl trap. Hmmmmm. I just said okay. See the small piece of cheese in the middle? I found it interesting that he came up with this approach.|
|MOMMY WITH COMMUTER HUSBAND: How could this fail? Says "Guaranteed!" right on the package.|
|Trap was set with Peanut Butter. Think perhaps that hole in the wall could be part of the problem?%%$#?!!@|
|NEXT MORNING: Cheese was gone from Oldest Son's trap but alas the mouse was not caught.|
|5 DAYS LATER: No mouse in my trap either. Huge Sigh.|
|I get to wear these cute kinds of shirts now!|
