"We didn't realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun." ~Unknown
As time passes, memories do fade.
Perhaps when Cam's parents were in grade school, they experienced pajama days, but neither one recall doing so.
Full of school spirit, our son was happy to comply with the request to arrive at school dressed in his pj's.
A school project completed this week was entitled "The Best Part of Me" in which Cam indicated.. "I like my brain! With my brain I can learn. It makes me special because it helps me listen to my teachers."
After experiencing a somewhat mild winter, the tables have turned and a cold blast has arrived. Monday morning was a balmy -4 degrees on the thermometer! Due to some rain and then a hard freeze, Cam was home from school because of widespread cancellation as it appeared everything was completely iced over.
Miss Amanda spent Martin Luther King Jr. day with her buddy since both of their schools were closed in honor of MLK, Jr. Cam participated by providing service to others, helping Miss Amanda with her wedding planning activities. The pair conducted research the better part of the day, as Cam assisted with keeping things organized and searching for information. He may just be the only eleven-year-old volunteer wedding consultant!
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our difficult sleeping has continued due to inflammation in Cam's knee, but our son's mood has stayed relatively happy during the day. Due to sleep deprivation, though, he did have a few negative instances this week. He seemed quite reflective on Saturday.
"I have the nicest Mom and Dad."
"And we know we have the nicest son."
"Your son is nice, but sometimes he has his moments."
