Tres De Mayo Logos

This year the kid’s entered the school “Tres de Mayo” logo contest. The winning logo was used to promote the school’s annual auction. Neither of the kid’s had the winning logo, but I loved what they came up with. ๐Ÿ˜‰
Here’s George’s:

And here’s Francis’s:

Why “Tres” and not “Cinco” you ask…? The auction was held on May 3. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Old Yeller

Reading Old Yeller aloud with the kids, I was fine until Travis’s papa was talking to him about having to shoot Old Yeller:

“That was rough,” he said. “That was as rough a thing as I ever heard tell of happening to a boy. And I’m mighty proud to learn how my boy stood up to it. You couldn’t ask any more of a grown man.”

and then later, when his papa is trying to encourage a proper response to life’s adversity:

“It’s not a thing you can forget. I don’t guess it’s a thing you ought to forget. What I mean is, things like that happen. They may seem mighty cruel and unfair, but that’s how life is part of the time.

“But that isn’t the only way life is. A part of the time, it’s mighty good. And a man can’t afford to waste all the good part, worrying about the bad parts. That makes it all bad. . . . You understand?”

I’m sure I didn’t cry when I first read this as a nine-year old. As a 37-year old father of three, I had to take a couple of breaks.

Grandma Train.

I was playing trains with Sam this morning and he’s constantly saying things like “you be Whoa-sie, I be Thomas” or he’ll just rename the trains all together and go on our normal Sodor adventures. Well this morning, he held up a train and said “This is Grandma! Let’s go get ice cream with Grandma, Whoo, WHoo!!!” Then upon further inspection… I noted, Grandmas’s real name was… Rusty. lol Sorry Grandma!:)
