We got to see our friend Charlotte riding at her first horse show today.
She did a great job and she is sooooooo cute.

I hope you enjoy the quote below.



It's not only children who grow.
Parents do too.
As much as we watch to see what our children
with their lives, they are watching
to see what we do with ours.

I can't tell my children to reach for the sun.

All I can do is reach for it, myself.

Boxland 09

Pictures by Logan Robertson

Well Mira and her friends survived sleeping in their cardboard boxes last night in 34 degree rainy weather. Mira did say she really appreciates having a warm bed. The kids raised over $4,000.00 to be donated to the Salvation Army. Marko even donated $6.00 of his own allowance to Mira....he says he would do that anytime to get rid of his sister for a night.
Anyway, I am very proud of these kids.....more things like this should be in the media. I hope you enjoy the quote below.


Load the ship and set out. No one knows for certain whether the vessel will sink or reach the harbor.
Cautious people say, "I'll do nothing until I can be sure".
Merchants know better. If you do nothing, you lose.
Don't be one of those merchants who wont risk the ocean.

Mira and her friends Katie and Hailey are sleeping in cardboard boxes tonight at the soccer stadium. It is a school project for anyone who wanted to volunteer to help bring awareness to homelessness. It is cold and raining out...and they have to go to school in the morning......I am sure they will never forget this project!!!! I hope you enjoy the quote below from the movie "The Soloist."

"There are people who tell me I've helped him.
Mental health experts who say that the simple act of being someone's friend can change his brain chemistry, improve his functioning in the world. I can't speak for Mr. Ayers in that regard. Maybe our friendship has helped him, but maybe not. I can, however, speak for myself. I can tell you that by witnessing Mr. Ayers's courage, his humility, his faith in the power of his art, I've learned the dignity of being loyal to something you believe in. Of holding onto it, above all else. Of believing, without question, that it will carry you home."

Tonight, Mira went to homecoming......a beautiful night for pictures. I hope you enjoy the pictures above and the quote below.

"My own definition of Dada: an insane lyrical impulse to remain light and
carefree, always looking for something to wonder or marvel at, or love, or laugh at, but always remaining illogical and joyous in a world gone mad with too much logic, seriousness, science, newspapers, war, and destruction."

Beautiful Flower

Cause you're beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind
There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you, who are beautiful...
Yeah, you, who are brilliant Yeah, you, who are powerful Yeah, you, who are resilient
