One of the little girls in JR's class brought everybody Mardi Gras beads to celebrate Fat Tuesday yesterday. Of course now Kyle and Reed have a new favorite toy. A room full of toys and they've been playing with plastic beads for two days. And if you're wondering what I'm giving up for Lent, that would be...nothing! I've never heard a Baptist sermon telling me I needed to give up something for Lent. And you know the Baptists, if they thought I needed to be giving something up, they would have told me!
