Don't Hate Cause We're Military

So I was sitting in class today, and before it started I overheard a conversation that kind of got my blood boiling. This girl was talking to an older classmate (and when I say older, I mean about 55) about her high school and how she opened the door to this school that was supposed to be a school for intelligent kids. It was some sort of magnet school. Anyways, the older lady was saying that she tried to get her kids into that school, but they didn't get in because of a military family. Apparently, the dean admitted both the kids from the military family and didn't admit this ladies children. Her point of view was that her kids should have been admitted over the military children because her kids were permanent residents. Her kids were the ones that were going to be contributing to the state when they graduated. So basically, the military kids didn't deserve to be admitted because they were going to be moving. Ok. So here's my point of view. When my kids get older and they have a chance to attend a great school, I sure as hell want them to go there! So what if we're military, I still want the best for my kids, especially when it comes to education. Every kid should be treated equally, they're all going to be contributing to the future of this country. It just made me so upset that she would discriminate againstmilitary because they moved. Sorry if our husbands and our kids dads are defending your freedom.

On to a more positive note.

I made homemade pizza tonight. And it was delicious! Eric is a picky eater, so eating pizza is a big ordeal. We usually have to either order two or get half and half. It's a pain. Anyways. I went out and bought the Pillsbury dough in the can, cheese and toppings. I made a hamburger, olive and mushroom pizza. It was the best! Brooke loved it too. She eats all of the olives off. Throughout the whole meal she was shouting, "MMM!!!! PIZZA!!!!"

Tomorrow I'm doing a playgroup with a couple of friends. We're going onto base to check out a public one. It should be a lot of fun.

I took some new pictures of the Sesame Street clips, and they look a lot better.

And then I made another hat, a pattern I've done before, but didn't like it with the acrylic yarn. I tried it with the cotton yarn and it came out so cute. I think I'm going to make a bow to go with it and list it as a bow and beanie.

Ok, off to do puzzles!

That pizza looks yummy! I love your Sesame Street clips. My one niece is getting better about keeping clips in, and my other is finally getting some hair. So I hope I will be ordering more soon!
