Wordful Wednesday

This 100+ year old solid oak work hutch is a family heirloom given to me by my beloved grandmother, affectionately known in our home as Grama-Great. This vintage piece came from the old Utah capital building back in the late 1800's and is now my sweet bugaboo's homework hutch. "Munchie" the travel monkey oversees homework activities like a marine general. (Munchie is our family good luck charm who sits in the front window of the Tahoe as we travel.)

I am so pleased that she loves school so much and she has a wicked pride in being the best in her class at everything and consistently searches for perfection. Hmmm...similar to another type AAA personality in our home. I have no idea where that comes from. Nope, not at all. I just tell her, "keep on rockin' in the free world, girl."
