An MLK moment

So my kindergartner knew we were off school today because "it was someone's birthday". He then proceeded to describe the person and his good deeds. The name occasionally escaped him - though he mostly knew he was talking about "Dr. King" - but the deeds seemed to definitely stick with him :-).

My middle schooler found her confirmation dress (Catholic school - Catholic responsibilities ;-). I attempted to help - drove to mall - embarrassed her in store after store until taking little ones to play area and to lunch then directly to car - in shame, as usual. Left her with wad of cash and time with her friends. Hopefully all good. Thank you to her friend, Olivia B's, mom for being there :-). Another MLK Day moment anyway....
