She's famous!

Caroline was on the 5pm news tonight! We were at the city park near her school this afternoon taking advantage of the nice weather, and a truck from Channel 2 pulled up. The camera guy said he wanted to get some shots of kids enjoying the nice weather, and got shots of Caroline and another little boy on the bouncy seesaw. It showed up on the 5pm news as the lead-in to the weather segment! We had to watch it about nine times between 5pm and her bedtime at 7:30. Every time she watched she said, "I was on the news - I'm FAMOUS!"

M: A what? I haven't heard you say that before.
C: A vaaaahs. You know, it's glass, with water in it!

But it was really impressive to see it actually happen!

The most important thoughts of the day:
