Great Caleb Quotes

Photo by Mandy Gibson

When our grandson, Caleb, spends the day with us,
we can always count on some great quotes.
Here are the quotes from today.

Quote #1
I was reading Caleb a Super Hero (of course)
book that he brought to our house.
At the end of a particularly exciting page,
he said, "Nana, that's an exclamation mark--
you're supposed to read it like this..."
Then he proceeded to "read" the line in his
most excited voice.
I thought I knew something about Reading--after all
I teach about it at two universities, but
a three and a half year old set me straight today!

Quote #2
As many of you know, Caleb loves to wear
his Super Hero pajamas all the time.
Today he had on his Batman PJ's.
During the afternoon, I noticed that
his underpants were not on his body,
but in the bathroom on the floor.
Nana: Caleb, did you have an accident?
Caleb: No.
Nana: Did you get your pants wet?
Caleb No.
Nana: Did you get your pants dirty?
Caleb: No.
And then matter-of-factly he stated,
"I just wanted to go commando."

When I reported these conversations to his mama at the end of the day,
Mandy said, "He learns exclamation marks from me. The other
stuff, his daddy teaches him."

Hallelujah Chorus

I was sent this beautiful link this morning by a dear friend.
I sat watching it with tears in my eyes.
Yes, the shoppers at Macy's were treated to a Random Act of Culture,
but more importantly they were blessed to hear
God praised. Please take a minute
to watch. It will touch your life.

Psalm 57:9
I will thank you, Lord, among all the people.
I will sing your praises among the nations.

School Visit

In my career as an educator, I have visited many, many schools.
But last week, when I was visiting Chipeta Elementary, where I
have the opportunity to work with student teachers,
I observed something I have never seen before.
These hungry fellows weren't bothering
with the school cafeteria.
They much preferred to get their "free" lunch
outside under the trees.
As you can tell by the rearview mirror, these photos
were taken from my car as I was driving into the parking lot.
What a delight to see wildlife up close and personal!
