Abegail's Valentine Thoughts

Abegail made a Valentine's book in school. She had to talk about two things or people she loved, who she would send a Valentine to, and who one of her favorite people was. This is what she wrote.
I love my family because when I need help they are always in need to help me. Another way I love my family is that we have so much fun together. Plus we love each other the same.

I love my other family in Africa because even though they weren't rich they still cared for me very much and they also tried their best to keep me safe and to have enough food to eat.

I want to send a Valentine to my friend Victoria because we like to be nice to each other and we like to stand up for each other. By making each other feel good we like to tell how great it is to have a friend like us.

One of my favorite people in the whole world is my Mama and Papa in Africa because if I didn't have my Mama I wouldn't have been born. Another way I love them that they made me have a better life and they also did what was good for me.
Scott is Walking!!!
Scott is weaning himself from the crutches and is doing well. Bessie is going back to the contraption company and it looks like we have survived another roadblock. My parents came for Scott's last week on crutches to be a part of the continued chaos. They took a little time for some dancing.

Their last night, they decide we should all come to dinner dressed in a costume. Emmanuel colored race car pictures and wore them as a race car driver. Abegail went as me in my work life, I went as Scott, Scott went as himself, and Annie made good use of the bunny costume yet again.
