Sorry for neglecting you all weekend, but we were having fun with family that we never get to see (and there were eight children there – four of which were “internet age”). It just wasn’t going to happen that I had ample time to post anything!
A wonderful thing happened at the table over our Chipotle tacos, last night, though. I wanted to share (because I’m still smiling inside):
“I can’t wait to get home and finish reading that G. A. Henty book about Jerusalem”, I said.
“Yeah, that is a great book,” Kaden agreed. “I wish I had thought of bringing it on our trip.”
“I love the G. A. Henty series and the Elsie Dinsmore series because they don’t have any pictures. It is so much better when you imagine things.” Morgan (recently turned 9) told us.
I had to laugh inside – I was so excited she said it! She’s the baby of the family, so it was like a milestone – just as important as crawling and walking to me!
“Yeah, you know, when you are reading and you have this great image in your mind… and then you turn the page and see an illustration of what you were reading about – and it is TOTALLY different? I hate that!!!” Kaden said between bites of cilantro-lime rice and black beans.
How cool is that?! Almost as cool as Chipotle!! [I’m kidding… sortof.]
