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.” ๐Ÿ˜›

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? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ”
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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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 #21: Rain, Disney, & hilarious kids


Man’s voice on radio: “I was having lunch with my pastor, and she told me…” *double take* There is just so much wrong with that situation.

Waking up to the sound of rain is pure bliss.

“A bad memory is so awful.” -kindergartener

“You don’t know what’s in my head.”
“Your brain!”
“No, what I’m thinking.”
“Your brain HAS the thinking, duh!!”
-2nd graders

“So you’re saying that God’s the biggest of them all, and He’s on my team!!”
(Because sometimes you just need a Veggietales reminder ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Lasagna made with boiled matzah crackers. It’s a thing. And a pretty tasty thing, at that.

While playing “kitchen,” a kindergarten boy was being aggravating, setting the price of the toy eggs anywhere from $12 to $100 million, so an exasperated classmate responded with “Then I’ll use my powers and I’ll put them on your face.” XD

Playing a game with too few people has its challenges, as these kids discovered.
“Can I not be out when I’m out?”
“I’m a ball, bounce me at the wall.”

Sit-n-Sleep will beat any advertised price or your mattress is freeeeeeeeeee

Pretty sure a kindergarten girl just invented a Transformer fairy. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

You know you’re a crafter when you look at clothes on the clearance rack not in terms of “will it fit me?” but like “that would be great for that other project!”

Don’t cross your eyes, because 1. Your eyes will fall out, or 2. They’ll stay crossed and you’ll see two of everything! (At least, so says a second grader ๐Ÿ˜› )

“Look at my green apple. It’s all green and shiny. My preciousssss!” The 1st grade girl who said this had no knowledge of Gollum, nor any idea how much she was cracking me up ๐Ÿ˜‰

I will find my way, I can go the distance
I’ll be there someday, if I can be strong
I know ev’ry mile, will be worth my while
When I go the distance, I’ll be right where I belong

1st grade little boy: It’s so cloudy today!
Me: Yeah, I like cloudy days. How about you?
Him: No. Because you never know when it might rain.
Me: I like it when it rains. Don’t you like the rain?
Him: But…But there might be a thunder storm or a lightning storm!
Me: I love lightning storms! You don’t?!
Him: [completely baffled] No!! I don’t like any of those things! [runs off to play]
๐Ÿ˜€

One 1st grader to another: “You sound like a henchman of a bad guy!”

Little girls playing a game of make-believe involving pretending to be pregnant, and making play cake: “I can only have 1 bite, cuz I got 3 babies in my stomach.”

Not-too-thrilled 2nd grader at snacktime: “Everything’s pumpkin now…so these are pumpkin crackers.”

Brother and sister, (1st and K) discussing play money received by the latter:
Brother: “You’re telling me you don’t know if they’re real?”
Sister: “They’re shiny…”
Brother: “Okay, then I guess they’re real.”
Take note, government ๐Ÿ˜›

For my mom, sisters and I, a “girls night out” consists of watching Disney princess movies…and soundly critiquing them based on the Bible ๐Ÿ˜‰

Random Thoughts #2: Food, rain, & professors


We watched “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” Now we’re looking at every car, tv, computer and lamp in terms of what it could turn into.

I’m enjoying the cool, foggy, cloudy, rainy weather we’re having in SoCal during this, the second of our 2 seasons: cooler (warmer being the first). But…I miss real Colorado seasons. With snow.

I had 2 Oreos this week. I think that’s more than I’ve had in the past 6 months ๐Ÿ˜•

We got rain today! I went out and did a photo shoot when it stopped ๐Ÿ˜€

How often do you get told to write something on a fantastic movie for a college assignment? Well, if you take TESC’s Games People Play, at least once! The Movie? “The Princess Bride” ๐Ÿ˜€ My professor was praising it as having some of the most and best game theory examples in any movie he’d seen ๐Ÿ˜Ž Now that’s as good an excuse as any to watch it, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Nachos are the best!

Hot peach tea on a cold rainy evening…bliss.

http://www.dailyedge.ie/ipad-robbery-fail-1151493-Oct2013/ Oh dear. Maybe think twice next time? ๐Ÿ˜†

“What did people do before coffee was invented?”

So, I’m watching the daycare kids, and these 1st and 2nd grade girls are playing with paper pretend cameras. “Just take a picture, then delete it.” says one. So a girl “takes” a picture then is standing there looking at the camera. “She doen’t know how to delete.” says another girl, running over to “help” her friend. The tech-savvy kids nowadays… ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Nothing beats real melted butter on popcorn ๐Ÿ™‚

So thankful for nice college professors. They offset the not-nice ones.

Maybe this post has so many food items because it’s 8:00 PM and I haven’t had dinner yet ๐Ÿ˜•

Good night! I leave you with this.

Rain


Who covereth the heaven with clouds,

Who preparethย rainย for the earth,

Who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
