today the school-age kids where at school because of mlk jr. day. they were in the hall coming up with some ideas about decorating jars to collect money to help people in haiti.
one boy (who used to be in my threes class long ago!) was explaining to me what their ideas were...
"we're going to make jars so people can donate money to redd foxx."
"you mean red cross?" asked his teacher.
"oh yeah, that."
