This has been a wonderful week...the most wonderful of the entire year, in fact!
And I have so much I want to write down but it will have to wait.
You see, tonight is Friday.
And, there is a man that I've been dating for over 20 years.
And I'm still dating him.
And he'll be here in 15 minutes or so (I added the "or so" because #1, I like the word so, and #2, because I know this man well, and he just might be late :) ).
Hot coffee, a warm hand to hold my cold one, and lots of talking, listening, laughing, and never a disagreement (it took me forever to learn, but the key...just always agree or sweetly smile and submit :) ).
I love him!
The real reason I'm here...I had to write this down before I forget...
I was teaching Noah math this week and they were introducing to him the concept of "a dozen".
The examples greatly confused him.
*Your mom goes to the store and buys a carton of eggs. That's 1 dozen.
We buy 5 flats a week. That's a bit more than a dozen...150 to be exact.
*Your dad buys a dozen donuts for a breakfast treat.
The poor boy looked like he was getting hungry thinking about it.
So I said, "Don't worry, Noah. It's not that hard. A dozen is how many children God gave Daddy and Mommy."
He finally understood!
Now if I could only think of a way to explain what "seasons" are!
