Random Thoughts #24: Love, Yoga, & Oceans


Kindergarteners on a bird in a Dr. Suess book:
“That does NOT look like a bird.”
“That doesn’t look anything like a bird!”
“What kind of bird that?”

Sally: “Do you believe love is the answer to everything?”
Pianist: “Boy, I sure hope not.”
-Charlie Brown

More from our eloquent kindergarten boy:
“You’re faster than me, so this is very challenging.”
“Like a kaleidoscope.”
“You could break a bone, or crack your head!”
“I just got frightened because of a loud noise.”
“Here’s the ridiculous woman.”
“I can’t pronounce some words.”
“A little more effort.”
“My suspect-er went off at him.”
“She’s going to prepare us pizza.”
“To my surprise…”

3rd grader walking by a group of kindergarteners: “Hello there, little dumplings.”

“I need a bandaid, because I damaged myself.”
-tiny kid

Watching a princess movie, a second-grade girl wondered in an annoyed voice, “How come they always have to be about love and marriage?”

“I wonder why adults make such a big deal about kissing on TV when every Disney movie has kissing!”
-perceptive 4th grade girl

“Some exposure to childhood and other diseases in a school environment.” -in a craigslist ad for substitute teachers

Tan, green, and pink are a group of colors that go together very nicely.

When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust
I will trust
I will trust in You

Snoopy and Sally discussing whether to start a story with “It was a dark and stormy night” or “Once upon a time” culminated in “Once upon a time, it was a dark and stormy night.”😛

Had the most interesting convo with a smart and forthright 7th grader
Him: “Do you do yoga?”
Me: “Noooo…”
Him: “Because you look like the type of person who would do yoga.”
Me: “Inner peace and all that?😉 ”
Him: [surprisingly quickly and emphatically] “YES!”
Me: “Y’know, it’s not yoga. Reading the Bible is really peaceful. You should try it.”
Him: “I tried that a little bit…”
Me: “Try the Psalms. They’re really good. David wrote them, you know that?”
Him: “Oh. Just not the part with David and Bathsheba.”
Me: “Yeah, there’s no Bathsheba in Psalms.”
Him: “Ok. Good.”
Love when I have a chance to naturally share Christ with these kids😀

It’s been so long since we in Cali had rain, I literally stopped to smell and listen to the neighbor’s running sprinklers.

Cute multimedia art piece!

The ocean is such a powerful place, but a calming one too, if you know that God sets its bounds and rules the waves.

O Lord God of hosts, Who is mighty like You, O Lord? Your faithfulness also surrounds You. You rule the raging of the sea;
Psalm 89: 8-9

Random Thoughts #23: Eloquent kids, boots, Just Be Held


Little girl trying to play with/control 2 balls: “I’m babysitting!”

“First grade is horribler!”
-a first grade boy, during “-er/-est” homework

My sister just ate her oatmeal with a fork.

“I have no idea what we are playing here.” Lamented a first grade girl as she passed with a classmate making strange playacting noises and gestures.

I really wanna see Kung Fu Panda 3.

The middle schoolers had no idea what to do with the answer of “mostly classical” that I gave to their question of what kind of music I like to listen to. That and movie soundtracks. And sometimes CCM.

This new kindergartener has the biggest vocabulary of any I’ve seen so far.
• “Darth Maul is Darth Sidious’ apprentice.”
• “This is excellent! I can make anything I want with this clay.”
• “I’m taped to the ground with indestructible metal.”
• “I’m going to do something on the monkey bars. …If I have enough courage.”
• “Or, as a alternative…”
• “Do you think that would be wise?”
• “The name of the bad guy [in a game of pretend] is Carius Matoya.”
• “And when I whirled around, there was nothing.”
• “Can you see the pupil on this bug?”
• “I was just curious…”
• “Isn’t that oddly shaped?”
• “I love my rock collection. One was all dull on the outside but had sparkling crystals on the inside.”
•”If you look closely, you can see the shimmering on this side of this rock.”
• “I’m not sure, but I’m assuming it’s this one.”
• “I’m suspecting it’s made simply by mixing clay and water together?”
• “It’s a scroll. Which they used for paper in the olden dayspapyrus.
• “I love Greek mythology!”
• “We have a situation over there.”

It’s much better to undersweeten peppermint herbal tea than to oversweeten it.

A windbreaker over branches sounds just like the wind.

These boots of mine made quite the stir the other day!image
Kindergarten girl: “Ooohh! You’re wearing your new boots!”
4th grade girl:”I really like your violet purple boots. They really shine out.”
Random lady at the library: “I LOVE your boots!”

“I’ve been rapping since I was 4.” -7 year old

Some of the daycare kiddos:
“I don’t do anything for Earth Day. What are you supposed do?”
“You clean up stuff other people littered. …For the Earth.”

“Girls like boots, don’t they?” -my sisters’ 60-something male piano teacher
XD 

This song is my favorite right now.

Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 
-1 Peter 5:7

Katniss’ Red Fire dress


One of my sisters commissioned me to make this for our youngest sister’s Christmas gift.🙂 Katniss’ interview “girl on fire” dress from The Hunger Games movie. It differs from the original dress in that I added cap sleeves for modesty. It’s a red silky materiel with an attached ruffle of sparkly red lace, and a red wire ribbon flounce/bow.

Easy, pretty Christmas crafts


A little post to show you the lovely decorations in the daycare room where I work🙂 These are all neat Christmas crafts for kids!

Puzzle piece wreaths! (Glue puzzle pieces onto a paper plate with the center cut out, paint green, and glue on red beads for holly and a ribbon bow.)

A reindeer from each kid’s feet and hand prints! (Head is footprint; antlers are hand prints with the thumbs pointing out.)

The Christmas board turned out real pretty😀 And has a string of real lights.

The kindergartners made lots of cool ornaments.

Snowflake from popsicle sticks and glitter
Reindeer from 3 puzzle pieces glued together and painted brown, google eyes and red pompom nose
Marker-colored paper ball
Silver dove on purple paper background

Merry Christmas!

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
