My boys go to a small home-school co-op. One of their teachers, Mrs. Cott, grants her classes "Merciful Monday" which means that the kids get a little extra latitude on the first day of the week since they are readjusting to being back at school after the weekend. That's what I needed today. Hard to get my head back in the game after all that celebrating and chocolate.
This is Mark's Great-Grandmother Pearl Garey who died when his grand-dad was a toddler. I can see Mark in her expression. So strange that I can see a resemblance in the child of a grandchild she never knew.
