We watched the penguins get fed and saw all kinds of things, but one of the highlights was "Parakeet Pointe." Hundreds of parakeets are in an enclosure, and, like a letting zoo, you are right there with them. You buy a feed stick, and the birds will land on your hand and eat off the stick. It was really neat!
We left the city and went to Walmart and then to eat. While we were eating, the rain began. It was like a monsoon! Fortunately, we were close to the house, and the Big Man had a big umbrella and was offering door to door service.
We came back to the house and rested. Now we are looking at the weather and considering another parade tonight.

We are playing hooky and heading to New Orleans tomorrow. We plan to take in a Mardi Gras parade. T. Willy has never been to one, so it should be fun for him. We also may go to the aquarium. MK has a new fish, so she has been studying about fish. It seems appropriate.
I am going to school for first period tomorrow. The parenting skills teacher asked other teachers to speak in the class about parenting experiences. I am not sure what I'll talk about; I'm really hoping they've prepared some questions for me to answer. I'm always glad to help a fellow teacher, especially this one. Her only grandchild was diagnosed with leukemia a month ago. The doctors have said that if you must have leukemia, she has the one that is most treatable. Please keep Molly C. in your prayers.

You've been there for me for so long. Through MySpace. Facebook. You have always been there. We had a wonderful year together - I didn't neglect you at all. (Let's not talk about that dark day in December.) We've shared so many wonderful events.
I now just have to find room in my heart for both of you. I'll try to do better.
P.S. Here is something I found on Pinterest that I'm trying to recreate in my own way. It's just a start. I am going to add some more elements, but I wanted to share what I have done so far.
