Tomorrow I have to turn in the payment plan at Good Shepherd for Alise's tuition next year. The actual payments aren't due until August. There are four option plans: monthly, quarterly, by semester or all at once. I need to call the school tomorrow and verify the amount, but I think Wayne and I are gonna go ahead and pay it all up front. Just get the whole thing overwith! Then, all I will have to pay is after school care.
I have to let you know about a conversation that Alise and I had in the car on the way home yesterday. We ended up talking about Emma and Allie (imagine that!) and Alise asked me, "Does God love Emma?" I said, "Yes, Baby. God loves Emma." "Does God love Allie?" "Yes, Alise, God loves Allie and he loves you, too. Do you know how much God loves you?" "Uh-huh," she said (as if she really knew). I told her that God loved her so much that Jesus died on the cross for her and I asked her if she remembered making a cross at church on Easter Sunday. I know she probably didn't understand a word I said about Jesus dying on the cross, but I saw it as a "teachable moment," so I took advantage of the situation.
