(Insert horribly sappy "civil rights" poem here)
Today felt as if it consumed itself, I arose early enough, but the time slipped away so quickly. Ellie had a temperature and has been tugging at her right ear. I practiced piano with her - she's quite the competition- then she fell asleep on my lap while I read from The Fourth Turning. I wrote about 3 paragraphs for my paper and polished off the Walden paper for submission to an online journal.
I watched Michelle at gymnastics, somehow I need to help her see or understand the power of positive thinking. She is very hard on herself when the teacher doesn't rave about her. She needs some more appropriate clothes and a go-for-it attitude. I'll try to encourage her more.
