Yeah Sunshine!

Don't you just feel better when the sun is bright first thing in the morning? I certainly do, especially on these long grey winter days! It is a beautiful morning here, sunny, blue sky, birds singing~surely spring can't be far off! Yesterday, in the midst of all of our errand running, we dropped off our beautiful lampwork, small pink Swarovski pearls, and Bali silver that is our donation to the Valentine Event silent auction. So pretty and romantic! Chris used a violet blue colored glass (called halong bay for you bead makers) with light pink accents and then with the pale pink pearls, it was just gorgeous. For you Nebraska Democrats out there, there is going to be a first this weekend~the Presidential Caucus! We are planning on going to the one in Hastings at the fairgrounds, Saturday evening at 5:30. It has always been important to me to exercise my voting rights (if you don't use them you could lose them!), and Chris feels the same way. This has rubbed off on Mina, and when we listen to the news on NPR, we get in to discussions with her about politics and our views, and other things that are in the news. Also, her language arts teacher makes them do a current event worksheet each week, where they take a news story and break out the who, what, why, how, and why is it important. I really like that~it makes them pay attention to things they normally wouldn't. So if you have a chance get involved with the election, no matter what party you're with.
