My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Thesaurus Thursday

Yes, it's Thursday again.

And, believe it or not, my house is QUIET!!

AAahhhh, the joys of preschool.

So, before we get on to our words today I need your input. Or my kids strange or what? Dropping off the boys this morning I saw two different sets of parents trying to pry their screaming/clinging kid off of them. One poor Dad couldn't hardly get his kid in the front doors for the writhing and thrashing.

Subvet and I looked at each other and said wow, that's different!

Our kids barely stopped to hug us goodbye, they were much more interested in all the TOYS!

I do remember last year when taking Sonshine to school those first two weeks. He did throw a huge fit.....

when it was time to go HOME! I literally dragged him from the school screaming and kicking.....

he threw an equally big fit the next morning when I wouldn't take him back!
That was when I started the pictoral calendar I showed y'all last week.

Anyway, On to our words for the week.

passe-partout, this is a noun and it's origin is French. I'll try to give a pronounciation..../pas'par too'/ The second accent mark is stronger and there are 2 dots over the a and a line over the 2 oos.....does that help?

porrect this is an adjective, Latin in origin /pe rekt'/ the first e is the schwa e (upside down)

have fun making up silly definitions and I'll put up the real ones on Saturday as usual.

I took him to a preschool called "Friends Church Preschool" when I mentioned taking him back there the next day he said haltingly with sobs after each word... They!(sob) Not!(sob) My!(sob) Friends!
