Kid Quote of the Day

Sabrina came home from school on Friday telling me that she finished her next level of math minute. These are timed math tests. She has been doing flash cards at home trying to get better at this. She hates being timed.

So she told me she finished her timed test on Friday but because it was Friday she didn't get to bring it home yet. I kept asking her if she REALLY did it, since I told her if she could finish it this week I would take her for a scoop of ice cream.

Last night we took her for her scoop of ice cream. Today I was teasing her about how she better have really done it and not been kidding me. Annie said, "Hey Mom, I know how you can know. Just ask her some of those math questions and see if she knows them."

Then Sabrina butted in with, "No Annie that won't work. I have to SEE them! I am a virtual person!"

Hee hee - she was obviously told verbally that she was a visual learner and without seeing it written down it didn't quite sink in!!

I am concerned about your friend, Brother Abbott. Im not sure if they have exhausted this avenue or not, but "The Huntsman Cancer Institute" in Salt Lake does not turn anyone away. They have the best Dr.s and brand new tech, etc. It might be worth a try. I thought maybe you have the Abbott's email and could tell them. Im not sure they would see it on a comment on their auction.
I will cross my fingers and say a little prayer.

Just wanted to share a note: You don't know me, and I don't know you. But, I'm good friends with Emily Jones, and was talking to her the other day on the phone about how amazing you are. Just wanted to let you know again what a difference you have made in her life. You are one of the best people I've ever heard about. Thank you again for being an angel.

The abbotts applied at the huntsman place and were turned down or declined. Thanks for thinking of them though.
