Wednesday 8/28/13 cats and school events...

We have two cats. Last year I was combing our cat Mandy and telling her how pretty she looked. She must have understood me. She started carrying the comb around in her mouth. She started taking all of the combs and putting them in her bed. Lately we have had to cut a few snarls out of her hair with the scissors. Now the scissors have disappeared. We wonder if she took them so that we won't cut her hair any more.

Maggie needs to go to some cultural events for school. It is a requirement. She also needs a certain number of volunteer hours each year. The theory behind the volunteering and cultural events is that in life, just like in school, people are busy. They should still make time to go to local events and to volunteer. During Maggie's first year at this school we did a few events and forgot about them. They never made onto the calendar. Before Christmas the kids got a reminder that half of their hours and events were due in a week. What a mess. Maggie had a lot of homework and didn't have time for this. We could find events, but there were no volunteer hours. Most places don't need help in the winter. It was a struggle. Now we write due dates on the calender and try to get everything done before the homework starts.

August 2013 Bible verse: "But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus - the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God." Acts 20:24
