Ty and his Bonsai...


Tyler is very interested in Asian culture right now. He got an A in his Chinese Mandarin class this term, so we are very proud of him. I got him this little Juniper Bonsai tree. The Juniper type is from China and not Japan which is kind of fun. We are nervous about keeping it alive, but so far it is green and happy (after only 1 week). If any of you have 'Bonsai Skills', I would love to hear any tips you may have. He is going to be at his Dad's next week and I'm in charge of the tree...I am hoping it doesn't take a downturn on my watch.

Quote for the Week...

In memory of Dr. King.

Tyler and I watched a special on Martin Luther King Jr. earlier this week and I was just so amazed by his courage. He knew that his life was in danger and yet he knew that his cause was more important. I cannot imagine the strength it took for him to press forward. I got a little weepy in some parts. I was so glad that Tyler was able to see it and have a better understanding of what Dr. King truly accomplished.
