Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Ability Tuesday

I really want to thank Debbie at Twittermoms.  I needed to be reminded to celebrate my boys' abilities.  So, now I am going to participate in her meme "Ability Tuesday".

Konal is a numbers guy.  I am not bad at math, but I have trouble recalling memorized facts, such as 8*7.  He is my go-to-guy for that.  He is always ready with an answer.  If he is in a good mood, he will sit down and help his brother with his math homework.  He is in honors math right now, and is being recommend for honors algebra next year.  This is good, because he wants to be an engineer and design cars.

Aidan is very creative.  I always have drawings of his around the house and his short stories are funny.  I gave him graph paper and drawing pens for his birthday this year, because he has a fascination with geometric drawing right now.  I can't wait to see what his next passion is!

My boys are wonderful.  They both have special needs in their lives, but they have so many abilities that shine out.
