okay...YES I did take her pencils, for a LOT of reasons. I love when my kids need something simple and ridiculous at the same time, and I can fulfill that, without question. So wonderful. She had a pencil and somewhere between Spanish and Math it grew legs and walked away. It wasn't really about her needing a pencil...as much as it was about her needing a hug and a smile and someone she could count on. I am glad that person was me. It won't always be me....so I take it while I can. It cracked me up when while I was waiting for her to come out of class with the excuse she had to go potty....that I looked up and saw that POSTER!!! Right outside her classroom. LOL, totally random!!! If she was truly irresponsible then I would have let her to without and learn the hard way, but she is not so....I knew it was about more than the pencil.

btw Suzie...have I been blogging enough for you!!! You owe me some now. LOLOLOL

....Gavin pointed out that at least she was asking for a pack of pencils. It could have been worse!!!

And really, in a Junior High...NO ONE else has a pencil....???

My cute Clarissa!!! ♥

my happiness!

“You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences.” ~Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
