By Joyce: I want to give a little update about our previous post. I have been receiving many requests to share the video with teachers. Yes, please feel free if you think it will help your child in anyway. If you would like me to send a link for just the video directly to your email, send us an email at: sarahely8989 at (i'm spelling this out so we don't get spammed, but use the @ sign) yahoo.com and I will send it over.
If you follow us on facebook you have already heard this story, but I'd like to share it here as well. I stayed in the office late on Thursday to finish the uploading of the video so I could do the post. When I got home Sarah was waiting for me at the door. She have me a hug and said, "Mom I saw the video. Thank you for finding the money machine." I almost melted right there in a puddle of mush on the floor. I wonder how many times we have made her do things over and over and over again that were not pleasant, when a simpler solution was available. And one that gets the job done. I'm so happy she was able to articulate her feelings to me.
Now I have a question. There is a big debate going on around me. Should the title of the post we are talking about been:
1) Do Counting Coins Matter or
2) Does Counting Coins Matter
It seems people here in Ohio are split 50/50. So I thought I would ask a broader sampling. I'm really not sure. Maybe I need to go back to grammar class:)
Before I go, I just want to share a photo with you. Seems my little ole car wants in on this counting discussion too. I ran to the bank today and on the way back to the store I looked down and...
...check out that odometer. LOL!!! Not to mention the frigid temperature in Cleveland today. Sarah is really struggling to breath. We don't dare take her out in this weather. I just wish we had an oxygen tank in the closet. She could use some I'm afraid.
