A rough storm came up one night and left a sandy beach strewn with starfish. The next morning, a child walked along the shore, stopping every few feet to pick up a starfish and flinging it out into the sea. An old man watched the child and finally shouted at him, "Why bother, son? There's too many starfish to make a difference!". With that, the boy picked up another starfish and looked at it intently before heaving out into the sea. He then turned to the old man and said...

"It Makes A Difference To This One"...

Blue Toenails

The weather here was cool and rainy all weekend, and as we had been planning a garage sale, we found ourselves with no plans at all for the weekend!  We mostly sat around watching movies with the kids and playing with the zhu zhu pets and their little “town”.  It was very relaxing, and I can’t remember the last time we did nothing all weekend-usually they are jam-packed with activities!  It was a nice change!

Anyway, on Saturday, Bernie was putting Brody down for a nap, and I decided to take Makenna for her first pedicure (actually, I had a full pedicure, Makenna just had polish!)!!  We had a blast and she was very interested in the whole process.   I let her pick out our toenail polish, so now I have to live with neon blue toenails for the next few weeks, but I guess that’s ok.  She has informed me that next time, we’re getting purple polish!  I had the nail tech add a flower, and Makenna was delighted-she said she can’t wait to go to preschool and show all her friends!
