On February 23, Natalie particpated in her first pageant - Miner Miss. This is a local school pageant. She was so beautiful and did a great job - even though she didn't win. We talked about inner beauty vs. outer beauty and how she needs to strive for inner beauty. To have a quiet and gentle spirit, to be compassionate and kind, etc. I hope to have more talks like this soon. I will post some pictures soon.
On Wednesday, February 27, I received a call from the school nurse about Nathan. He had fallen in the cafeteria and hit his chin on the table. So, we dashed off to the doctor's office and he received 4 stitches. He was so brave through it all - so we got ice cream on the way home.
