Gratitude Project 2006

Two things today - one is I'm grateful for my son's interest in air soft guns so I can learn to shoot one and I'd have never have thought of it myself. He typed out a whole page on why he should be allowed to buy one, complete with link fu to its safety (sadly he used wikipedia, so we talked), and acknowledgment to past irresponsibility in other matters with promises to be newly responsible with the gun. He is 15. I was quite tickled with his presentation. I knew nothing about them, but now I know they shoot plastic pellets that do not penetrate the skin and the pellets biodegrade in about a week, weather conditions shorten or lengthen the time I'm guessing. But heh - kids who want can be persuasive. Link:

Second - I'm grateful to my daughter for the gift idea for her son. He has wanted a Videonow player for awhile and told me to get him one so I could be "the cool gramma"! lol Got it and a headset (since WE don't want to hear the movies) and a carrying case. We're celebrating at The Kid Company today. :-)
