Bella told me that she’s been saying her own morning prayers in her room before she comes out. Different prayers every day, she says. Sometimes she likes to sing them sometimes she says them. She is also opening her Bible story book and reciting the readings for herself as she doesn’t yet read. Yesterday, she told me, she recited the story of the golden calf. Today she said she did the story of Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt. What is a little uncanny is that yesterday’s Office of Readings was the story of the golden calf.
RE: Ben—he’s a fireman (they put out fires) & he doesn’t like ‘fire’works—maybe it is the concept of fire & what it can do in a scary way that he is fearful of. Owls, anyone?
Oh maybe. I think maybe he just doesn’t like me making owl noises with a certain book—Owl Moon by Jane Yolen.
