Today has been a fun day. This morning on The Cat in the Hat cartoon the kids made a tent, so my kids decided that they needed a tent too. So we drug the kitchen chairs into the living room, draped a blanket over the tops and the kids brought their blankets and pillow to it for their sleeping bags. It was a lot of fun. I’m glad I resisted the urge to say no because it would be such a mess and create so much clutter in our tiny living room. It’s not about the mess, it’s about the memories.
While the kids were reading books in their tent I looked out the back door window and there were about 30 snails out on the concrete porch crawling around! (Literally, I counted them!) It had rained last night and everything was wet so I guess they decided to venture out. There were tiny ones and big ones making the journey across our little back porch. I called the kids and grabbed my camera and we went outside to watch them. Have you ever looked closely at a snail? The detail on their tiny little bodies and shells is amazing. I don’t see how anyone could say that was evolved. God’s handiwork is all around us.
