Things that Matter

We were away on vacation last week. Went to Southern California where the weather was in the high 60's to mid 70's most of the time.

Well, vacation is definitely OVER. We're back in the Central Valley where the heat reigns. So sad.

On the drive down, the girls were playing with a set of magnetic Tangoes. Do you know what those are? They come with 7 shapes, and pictures of animals or objects, and you're supposed to recreate those images with the 7 shapes. (The pictures are black, with no hint of any lines where shapes begin and end, so it's actually kinda' hard.) It can be really fun, if you're in the mood. Otherwise, it can be total frustration.

While the girls were playing, Megan called for my attention ...

Megan: Mom!

Me: What?

Megan: Two things.

1: Amanda said I'm not smart, and

2: Look! I made a lighthouse without even looking!!

I love that she put those 2 items at the same level of importance. I don't even think she realized that the fact that she made a lighthouse with those shapes without looking totally invalidated what her sister had said about her. Or maybe she did realize it. Nah.
