Romeo and Sarah are dreaming of having a cell phone! Right now they are stuck with land lines -- oh, the horror!
Sarah's birthday will be here soon! What she wants more than anything is a cell phone! She's been telling us for months now that it's okay if we go ahead and buy it for her NOW. Her reasoning is that it's really for safety so if she's early getting out of art club she can call me to pick her up (even though her art teacher has a phone) -- or if terrorists break into the house while I'm away at Wal-mart she can let me know -- or some other really good reason. There is a line from the movie "Welcome Home Roxy Carmichael" that Kevin and I have repeated for years -- "It's good to want things." In the movie, a boy wants a girl to kiss him and she doesn't but instead says "It's good to want things." So, Sarah keeps hearing that line and just shakes her head and says "yeah, yeah."
Here are Sarah's two most recent cakes. The first cake she made in cake class. The writing on top in purple says "Happy" in Chinese and then "Happy Day." She took the cake to school the next day for the teachers to enjoy. The LOVED it! The second one she made today for her dad. He LOVES it too! We only have one class left and then have to decide if we want to take the second class.
