Thursday afternoon

I'm just going to put it out there: I don't like puppet shows. Today, I accompanied Cal and his kindergarten class to see one, and it was better than average, fortunately.

As my assigned group of children piled into my car one of the boys promptly asked, "how old are you?"

Cal wanted to sit in my lap once we got into the auditorium, a great surprise, and he stayed there until it was time to leave.

On the way back to school I overheard someone say, "I've been to Cal's house. It's really sunny." I love that.

Oh my....that first picture might possibly be my favorite of ALL of your photos!

Also - wanted to let you know that I always really love your Lent posts. I look forward to them every year!

It's 10.26am here in Singapore. I am reading this in my cubicle, in the office.

It's really a beautiful post, Lecia :) It makes my Friday a little sweeter!! Love these two photos of yours and that someone's comment on your house - he/she is being so right. Sunny is the perfect word :)

i enjoyed this post, lecia. the one sentence thoughts (why can't i think of a better way to say this???) about your afternoon are wonderful.

oh my goodness--colorado is SO brown right now. it looks nice and golden at sunset and sunrise, but otherwise--i miss the blossoms of spring. thanks for a quick pacific northwest fix!!! :)

I love that comment too about your house being sunny and the first photo is simply amazing. I've always loved seeing petals on the street. Have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful photos and I totally agree on the puppet shows.

First of all, beautiful photographs. I believe a sunny home is very important. I'm glad it was the statement that ended your not-so-fun field trip.

Your boy sitting in your lap would make a puppet show a sweet event no matter what.

There's nothing nicer than a sunny house. Except when your little boy wants to sit on your lap!

Happy Weekend, Lecia.

I don't like puppet shows either. Maybe Cal didn't, either. Love the random normalness of this post.
