Cailyn taught us another song she learned. I’m not sure of the context other than the obvious assumption you can draw from hearing it. It went something like:“Sunny day, rainy day, cloudy day so gray.
What’s the day look like today?
Can we go outside to play?”
Would that be for a lesson on the weather? Or maybe just something to say to give a reason for having to stay inside at recess? Or do they even have recess anymore? Gotta be better than the recesses we used to have. Now they have full-blown playground equipment on the school grounds. We had to make up our own games. Classics like tag and Olympic races and who can argue the loudest without getting in trouble with the teacher.
We also got some more insight into Cailyn’s Mom. Calm down, April. It wasn’t anything too embarrassing this time. She was playing with some of our toys that are, by the way leftovers of her Dad’s and uncles’. And one of the little creatures inspired her to say, “Aww, look. Mom’s favorite, favorite, favorite animal in the whole wide world is an owl.” Well, I didn’t know that. Chris apparently did, though. She referred me to a certain tattoo that April sports. So there you have it. Owl lady. Harry Potter would be proud. Gives me some ideas for Christmas presents …
Psalms 113:5-6 says, “Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?”
Father, thank you for all the cool tools for learning about your world. Amen.
