There's meaning in the those words...

Last night, Mike and I made spaghetti and meatballs and homemade garlic bread from Jamie Oliver's awesome Food Revolution cookbook. We wanted a nice, hearty family dinner to set Riley off right for her 2nd gymnastics meet this morning. We all loved it, which is really saying something about the recipe!

While we were eating, I asked Riley how she was feeling about the meet. She freely admitted being a little nervous. Mike and I dispensed our supportive parental advice and in the midst, Logan interrupted us.

"Riley," she said in all her honest sweetness, "Just so you know, the only thing wrong with fear.... is fear itself."

Riley was clueless (she was getting TMI from the three of us), but Mike and I couldn't help but chuckle. Logan might not have gotten Roosevelt's quote verbatim, but she certainly did get it right.

GOOD LUCK SWEET RILEY! We're all behind you!!

Jim and I loved the entry and Logan's words of wisdom for Riley - (out of the mouths of babes...) but wasn't that Roosevelt's quote...?

Would love the receipe - your dinner sounds wonderful!
