The Red Ribbon!
Yesterday, I got some fantastic news.
Tyler got the Red Ribbon at preschool!
I can’t really remember what that means, except that only one kid gets it at the end of every day. It has to do with some sort of virtue, I think – like sharing, or listening, or helping, or being kind. And the Red Ribbon is a very big deal. It’s an honor.
This was Tyler’s first time getting the Red Ribbon. He was so excited and proud. And this auntie’s heart is bursting.
I can’t wait to see him in Kansas for his 4th birthday at the end of the month – especially to watch him ride his tricycle with his short little legs. (SQUEEEEEEE he is so cute!!!!)

I don’t quite know how to segue between a preschooler and an R-rated movie – but has anyone else seen “Atonement”? I watched it over the weekend, and cannot stop thinking about it. A raw and brutal story set to the percussive rhythm of typewriter keys, it has left me speechless.
You must see it – that is, if you’re okay with some very sexual scenes and graphic violence. Which… apparently, I am.
I dare you to try to convince me to see “Star Trek,” you nerd Joey.
