Correction on a previous blog post

I do not expect my SIL to have her children call me Mrs. Scott. I'm Aunt Kate! However, my SIL is head of the nursery at my church and she introduces me to the other children as Miss Kate.

I really don't mind being called Kate by those who I am familiar with, but when I'm in a position of authority, I'd rather be called Mrs. Scott.

My bus ride was horrible as well. First I'll say that I went to a 'good' school. There were no gangs, very little violence ect. But I did happen to live on one of the worst bus routes. We learned drug songs, sex ed songs, blew up um...contraceptives to use as balloons, and I even had one person threaten to cut off my ears!! Mostly I did what you did, (just stared out the window) but I was made fun of for that too. Only once did the bus driver take the radio away as a punishment, but the little ones started learning the songs that the older ones were singing, and she had to put a stop to that!! I was lucky, my mom worked at the school, so from 2nd grade until later jr. high, I didn't ride much. But I sure learned a lot during those last couple of years!!

We homeschool, but our district (the same that my dh and I went to) has grown a lot, though still concidered the better district in the area. But they have gotten so big that they now have the jr. high and high school go earlier in the morning, and the youngers go about an hour later. Now the youngers don't ride the same bus as the olders. That has got to have helped!!

That's still bizarre. They're little kids. A position of authority? I pray your husband never leaves you because you're entire sense of self worth is tied up in being a Mrs. How about being a warm loving person? You seem very angry all the time.

When did good manners become equated with the bizarre???

Kate IS a warm, loving person. As to her seeming angry, it is very easy to incorrectly assume that certain emotions are behind printed words because you cannot see the person's face or hear their voice inflections.

This is off topic, but I am writing to let you know that there is a 48 hour prayer chain started for Susan Godfrey (you are on her blog's list of friends). Please spread the word so we can cover this family in prayer.

In Him,

I saw you were on Susan's friend's list and I also wanted to let you know that we are putting together a special encouragement box for the Godfreys. More information is here

Thank you for helping to uphold this dear family.

I personally feel that anyone that doesn't identify themselves and only posts as anonymous is either a coward and cannot back up what they say when questioned, or life in fear of their own beliefs.

Keep up the good work, Mrs. Scott!! You are an inspiration!

That's funny because I never pictured you as an angry person. You always come across as a creative, happy person in your little domain. As kids we were expected to refer to adult with a title of respect that they were comfortable with. What about honoring the hoary head? Even though I assume yours is not;-). There is still a principle.
Carry on, my good Lady Scott.
