Last week when we were out picking blackberries with Javamom and our other friends, Mariel experienced gravity in a more startling way than usual. She fell out of a mesquite tree into a clump of blackberry bushes and tore her jeans.
That little story is for all my book club friends who laughed a couple of months ago when I said it was a good idea to get the kids outside so they could experience gravity. See? They really do experience it more fully when they are running and jumping and climbing outside.
There. I feel much better now.
I'm sure you all knew what I meant even as you laughed, didn't you? For two months I have been wondering how to explain myself. You know you have made some true friends when they poke a little fun at you, and you don't mind coming back for more. Thanks, ladies. :o)
