Skool Pikture Blog Hop

So I had this great idea... let's link up some of our kids' best and/or worst school pictures. Of course the first person I thought of was the overzealous take my kid to sears photo center for every holiday including but not limited to Columbus Day and St. Patrick's Day my bloggy BFF Lynn, the Autism Army Mom. She thought it was a great idea, too. Then she put the idea out among our blogging buddies via twitter and sure enough, Lynn and I were the only ones who thought it was a good idea. Would we let a little detail like that deter us? Oh, hell no! So, here it is, kids... our little (very little) school pic blog hop.


So, this was the first school pic I got. So freaking cute, right?! I just figured that every single photo after this would be as gorgeous, but obviously I was spoiled because here's what I got the next year....

"You talkin' to me?"
Then I got this...

Yep, that's me
And now, ladies and gentlemen, I bring you Little Dani G

This is me, too, with a few stars coming out of my head


"do you think anyone's gonna join our little blog hop?"- Dani
"no."- Lynn

Oh, come on. Link up with us!!!

Just two things....

There are a couple of things blowing my mind today. 

1) That it's acceptable for a person like Kim Kardashian to be celebrated at all to waste millions of dollars that could have gone to a good cause like, oh, anything else be married for two months (was it even that long), making such a public mockery of marriage, but two consenting, responsible, tax paying adults cannot just because the happen to have the same parts??

So, that, and 2) that there are still 21 states here in the good ol' U. S. of A. that continue to discriminate against individuals (mostly children) with Autism, denying them insurance coverage. Yesterday, New York became the 29th state to stand up and end that discrimination.
What's it like where YOU live?
