Our Family

The only way we are ever going to ensure peace on this planet is to adopt the entire world as "our family." We are going to have to hug them and kiss them. And dance and play with them. And we are going to have to sit and talk and walk and cry with them. Because when we do, we'll be able to see that, indeed, everyone is beautiful, and we all complement each other beautifully and we would all be poorer without each other.

I came across this in a box of cards. Thought is worth sharing.

For the record...the memory record:
  • Gracie's people are beginning to look more like people with hair, eyes, nose, mouth, limbs & now a belly button. The mouth is an attempted smile that overuns the outline of the face on both sides. I love that kind of smile, don't you?
  • Adverbs...Grace uses adverbs now--correctly in most cases. For example: I have to go to the potty quickly or that guy is walking quickly and I fixed my hair beautifully.
  • Grace likes Lightmean Aqueen (Lighting McQueen) and needs the game just like Haddon. She pointed out "I don't have anything Lightmean Aqueen and I need something."
  • M's look like m's & o's look like o's and g's are taking shape as well. We're learning to write.
  • After the 27th snow event (according to WLS 890), Gracie is finished with snow.
  • Gracie likes to sing the high part while mom sings the low part, though she's becoming more of a soloist lately. Per this morning (Veggie Tales "You Are My Sunshine") when the part gets high, you have to sing really loud and open your mouth really big.

Well, Gracie has me beat as far as drawing people goes. Mine still look like aliens. LOL Isn't it neat to watch her grow and progress? May you continue to enjoy special times with the Gracie girl.
