Have to share another cute picture of Kathleen conking out on the ride home....
"I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best I could bring to it"
"Giving kids clothes and food is one of thing, but it's much more important to teach them that other people besides themselves are important and that the best thing they can do with their lives is to use them in the service of other people" Dolores Huerta
"We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget he is someone today"
