Taking Quinn to work

So the day before Thanksgiving, Quinn didn't have school, so she went to work at Lonestar College with Pam. Overall, this wasn't very productive for Pam, but that was expected. The surprising thing was that during Pam's "Best Start" class - the class that helps students identify what they want to do and who they want to be - Quinn says that she wants to be a nurse because she "wants to help people and be a part of her community"

Jaw dropping awesome.

Wrench Nose Shark

Quinn tells me (completely out of context) that there is no "wrench nose shark".  Having no idea what she is talking about, I ask her to repeat it a couple of times.

Finally she says, that there is a hammer-nose shark (hammerhead) and a saw nose shark, but not a wrench nose shark.

Is she my kid or what?

Writing and counting in Chinese

Quinn is not only signing songs in Chinese, but she is writing numbers in Chinese as well...

That's so cool!
