Quote for the day
***
"The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it.
I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher
education but all education from
vocational high school to graduate school.
We must learn to honor excellence,
indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity,
however humble that activity, and to scorn shoddiness,
however exalted the activity.
An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable
than an incompetent philosopher.
The society which scorns excellence in plumbing
because plumbing is a humble activity
and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy
because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither
good plumbing nor good philosophy.
Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water. "

My boys start at their new school today!
Yippeee!
I'll have a quite day to work with clients,
and work on my art.
No fighting, feeding, yelling for 8 glorious
hours. I think I might burst.
The boys neither one are prepared for
the cold weather we are having here.
We unpacked their clothes and found that
all the jeans and sweatshirts and the jackets
I bought at the beginning of school, they have outgrown.
I mean it's only been two months ago, sheesh!
They have both grown about an inch and put on at least 5-7 pounds...a sure sign that more tallness is coming soon.
OMG! I am raising giants.
At least their new shoes still fit for the time being,
although they are complaining of them feeling tighter than they were.
While in Mississippi, they only wore warm weather clothes, and well...they outgrew the cool weather ones without ever getting a chance to wear them.
They now wear the same size as me in socks, shirts, jackets!
I am stuck by how much and how fast they have grown, in such a short time.
Time seems to be fleeting so fast these days.
So, I'll be working peacefully, they will be off learning
new things in a new environment,
and it will be fun to have them regal me with
their stories about their new school when they come home today.
I look forward to missing them after two weeks of them being underfoot, and completely un-miss-able!
Well I am off, so much to do today, and BTW...
I really could use some sales
so I can go buy clothes for them,
hint, hint...I am having a sale, dontcha' know?
So scroll down, check it out, the sale page
is just down a couple of posts.
Have a great day all,
Heather
