Just like Lisa, I'm shocked at the girl who initiated this. You see, her parents are leaders at the Vacation Bible School my girls attend every summer. When I pick them up, her dad is always up there singing with the kids. On the other hand, Hank only goes to church at Christmas and Easter. He's also a truck driver and has a mouth like one.
Oh, and if you want to read more posts about the "R" word Joyce had something to say, too.
I'm hoping Mini Me will be inspired by Lisa's blog and stand up to the kids at school. But, I don't think it will happen tomorrow. She still feels like "the new kid" and is pretty shy. I'm wondering if I talked to the guidance counselor if she has a lesson that would be appropriate for this situation. I don't want to see kids get in trouble, I want them to learn why using the "R" word is wrong. I want them to know the people they are hurting and be able to empathize with them. I have a chance to volunteer at the school next month. Maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to go and bring Goldie with me.
