From the mouths of the littles...

Yesterday I had to make a run to S*am's Club and traveled via the interstate to get there. One of those spur-of-the-moment Florida thunderstorms rolled in while we were on the road. My windshield wipers were swishing as fast as they could, but I still had a hard time seeing. The wind was blowing so hard that I had a hard time staying in my lane. Not fun. Lil' Nut (age 4) was giving me a running commentary on the storm, but finally I asked her to quiet down so that I could concentrate on my driving. A couple of minutes later I heard a sweet little voice say, "I think God spilled His drink, and now it's falling all down on us." I thought that was so cute!

Last year we studied insects extensively, and it turns out that the older kids paid attention to what I was teaching after all. When Curly Girl (age 6) saw this pair of grasshoppers out by the pool the other day she exclaimed, "Look! That one is getting a piggy-back ride!" Bookworm quickly informed her that there was more to it than that. Oh, dear me! :)

Thanks for the giggles! LOL It's fun to listen to the kiddos talk, especially when one of them is older and "wiser" than the others. We've had our share of laughs over things like the grasshoppers over the years.

LOL ~ Oh dear, indeed! ;o)

A spur of the minute, afternoon, Florida thunderstorms with ... windshield wipers ... swishing as fast as they could, but I still had a hard time seeing.

Now that brings back a lifetime of memories! I hated driving in them, but there is something awfully cozy about being home when one strikes.

The comment that Lil' Nut made about the rain, was very sweet. She sounds poetic. :)
