THIS is the picture Adam colored during worship Sunday night. I just grabbed a few colors on the way out the door, so he didn't have many options to choose from. After he finished coloring Christopher Robin (AKA: "Tista Wobin") orange, he looked up at Chelsea and said, "I guess Tista Wobin should've worn sunscreen!"
THAT is the cute shirt I found for Adam at Goodwill.
And this is THE OTHER cute outfit I found at Goodwill (brand new, with tags still on it!).
I wore one of my all time favorite Goodwill finds to work today. This shirt! I got it a few years ago for $2.50 (It also still had the tags on it)! Love it!
My bargain shirts like this have been worn more often than some of my Ann Taylor clothes, and the hunt can be fun. It is more enjoyable when I saved so much and had to put effort into finding something special.
I spoke to a group of daycare teachers yesterday about working with parents of kids that have special needs. When I introduced myself, I told them about Levi, and the moment I shared that he had Down syndrome, they let out a unified, loud, sad, "Awww..." Not "Awww..." that's so cute. It was an "Awww... that's so sad." It didn't bother me much, but it is too bad they felt that way. How can that view be changed? Why did they feel sorry for me?
