Well now that’s cool….

Upon publishing my last post, WordPress so kindly offered me this quote:

Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you. — Marsha Norman

How apropos.  And, it’s a neat quote to boot.

Not your typical children’s reading material

by Janie Jones

All too soon all ya’ll will be sick of me an my school stories and the semester’s barely begun.  However, I just have to share this family togetherness vignette:

Yesterday evening, as the wind howled and the snow flew, the spud, Leif and I piled on my bed and read my new textbooks.  Eventually, Leif and I wandered off to make dinner, and when the food was ready Leif went looking for the spud.  Apparently, she was still engrossed, nose buried in my anthropology text.

Leif:  What are you doing?  Reading?

Spud:  Yeah, I’m learning about gorilla skulls.

Leif:  That’s a human skull.

Spud:  Well, gorilla skulls and human skulls.

Leif:  Cool.  Dinner’s ready though.  Go wash your hands.

Spud:  Awwwww! I wanna read about more gorilla skeletons.

The quest for knowledge:  Get ’em hooked young.
