17 Days and Counting

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to be shy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with praise, they learn to appreciate.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to find love in the world.


And if children live with a basset hound, they learn how to play laser tag in the nude.
(Kyle has a laser pointer in his hand and for some reason Tank Tank loves to chase the light.)

Oh to be as free as Kyle in the nude...grins. Hope his Mom is feeling comfortable at this late stage.

If children live with Mr. Shife, they learn to love bad football teams.

I thought naked laser tag didn't happen until the college years.
