Out of the Mouth of Babes

Oh, no she didn't.  Gracie is quoting scripture in support of staying up late. "You know, mom, it says in the Bible not to go to bed angry? Well, if I go to bed now my stomach will hurt and that will make me angry." =)

Me: Of course!
Grace:  You know, someday when I get married, I want you to do something for me please.
Me: (holding my breath for something BIG) What is that, honey?
Grace: I would really like that Baby Bullet they show on TV for my wedding  present.
Me: (hee hee, smiley mom) Well, we'll see if that is still on your list when your wedding day comes.

2012 Martin Luther King, Jr. Dream Keepers Essay

MLK Dream Keepers winning essay written by Gracie: 
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a kind man who wanted to change the lives of all the people to make it a better world. He organized a march of many people for freedom and justice and liberty for all God's children. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an example for me and for all of us to become better people, treating others the way we want to be treated. That is what is fair, what is right, and what is good. 
So proud of you, Grace. I love your heart!
