Some gifts....

I don't have really much to say about this, other than that, occasionally folks ask me to make them something and/or I think of something I could doodle for somebody else.  Recently, I have been doodling a lot of names with decorations, first for my children, then students when subbing, and then teachers, who noticed.  What follows are not those names, but stuff I have created for specific folks, that you can have too. 


This one was for a dear friend's daughter who is the cutest and is about to start potty training!  She gets to put a sticker on either when she tries or is successful or doesn't have an accident.  You make the rules here!  


 This one was a coloring sheet for an owner of my local yoga studio who had agreed to host a coloring booth for kids at a community event.  Lots of lines and boxes make it fun for adults too.  

Finally, this a bookmark I made for my kids' school librarian.  I work on our PTA and manage the staff "favorites sheets," and noticed her favorite teacher supply is fun paper to cut into bookmarks for kids when they check out books.  
P.S. Our mascot is the raccoon.  

ENJOY!!

I Was a Coward

I knew I needed to do it. I was too afraid to start.  I rehearsed the conversation in my head over and over, but still didn't know where to begin.  I had excuses:  They are too young.  They won't understand.  It doesn't directly affect them.  They don't have the historical perspective yet.
But the truth is, I was afraid to tell my children about Charlottesville, because I was afraid to reveal to them the ugliness of humanity, the failure of my generation and their grandparents' generation to address social ills and instead to sweep them under the rug.  I was afraid to see my pain, confusion, sadness, guilt, and fear reflected in their innocent faces.  It was hard enough to address the inadvertent mispronunciation of the African country, Niger, by a classmate, and the loving, necessary correction of that mispronunciation by another of their friends, last year,  and the conversation about words the people use to steal the humanity away from other humans.  But now, I…

Optimism

I love my town,  which is my hometown.  I live in a town of about 30,000, which is an inner ring suburb of Kansas City, MO (which P.S. is where the Kansas City that you hear about is located).  It is an incredibly convenient place to live, containing all the basic necessities of suburban living: neighborhoods, parks, schools, churchs, some restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, drugstores, and a smattering of small businesses.  And what we don't have is surely located nearby in the Kansas City Metro area, which is easily accessible from our town, usually no more than a twenty minute drive.  Also the stadiums (Chiefs and Royals) are so close, they are practically in our town. 
I feel a tremendous gratitude to my fellow citizens and neighbors, and also a immense sense of pride in our town.  Disappointingly, my town has some people who regard it negatively, or speak about it with negative connotations.  And we have definitely experienced the spread of the phenomenon of white fli…
