oh the sweetest winds, they blow across the South

So I don't have much time to blog but I wanted to share this real quick before I forgot about it. The other day we took 26 of the kids who had gotten our homework club and reading prizes to see Prince Caspian at a movie theater about 45 minutes away from where we live. Afterwards we got KFC (THE most popular chain in South Africa) and the kids were enjoying themselves for sure. One of the grade 1 girls had thrown away her box but still had a half eaten, greasy piece of chicken she wanted to take home with her. I was standing around talking to one of the other volunteers when I felt my purse moving. I looked down and she was putting her piece of chicken in my purse! She was completely baffled as to why I did not want to carry an unwrapped half eaten piece of fried chicken in my bag for her. It's hard to tell them not to do something when you're laughing so hard.
I can't believe we're more than halfway through June. The time is going by so quickly, it just blows my mind.

Maybe your purse looked like a "doggy bag" to her! How did you like the movie? The purest around here say that Susan should never have kissed Prince Caspian! I need to read the books!
Love you, Mom

why is KFC the most popular fast food chain in every country except the country it originated in?
