This week, my daughter and I have been reading the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. My daughter really seemed to enjoy the story and retained many more details than she often does. It probably helped that we had a word find to accompany the story. She really gets into word finds.
Yesterday afternoon, I was doing lunch dishes and half-listening while the children were playing in the toy room.
“You’re a nuisance!” my daughter said, followed a short time later by, “Why don’t you climb into that well and tell me what’s down there?”
This is when I went around the corner to better assess the situation.
Luckily, the “well” was just the new sleeping bag we bought for our campout this weekend, and my son was willingly playing his role and crawling into the bottom of it.
Still, I don’t want to know what might have happened if a caravan of camel-riding merchants had gone by at about that time.
