Spread My Ashes At Toys-R-Us.....

Yesterday we drove past a huge cemetery and this is how the conversation went...
Jake - "I just saw a Funeral."
Me-"Oh, were there a lot of people outside by the coffin?"
Jake- "What's a coffin?"
Me- "Well...when you die you can either have your body put into a coffin and buried in the ground so that people can come and visit you or you can have your body cremated into ashes and have them scattered somewhere that you really loved like a beautiful mountain or by a river or something like that. They can also keep your ashes in a box or a special container."
Jake- "They burn bodies!?"
Me- "Yep, Your body is just a shell and when you die you don't need it anymore, so your soul leaves and goes on to another place...a really beautiful place"
Long Pause.....
Jake- "I think they should spread my ashes inside of Toys-R-Us"

The earth has come to life today,
Spring is here hooray hooray,
Flowers are happy,
They wave into light,
The suns shines bright,
with all her might,
So fly little fairy,
Fly Fly Fly,
Fly threw the meadow,
And touch the sky,
When you get where you are going,
Remember this day,
The day the earth,
Came out to play.

The Three Questions...

"When is the best time to do things?
Who is the most important one?
What is the right thing to do?"
"Remember then that there is only one important time, and that time is now.
The most important one is always the one you are with.
And the most important thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side.
For these, my dear boy, are the answers to what is most important in this world."
"This is why we are here."
This is our all time favorite choice for bedtime reading.
The Watercolor's are so beautiful!

Spring Treats...

I'm getting tired of spending so much money on treats for classroom celebrations, so yesterday I went around the house and found things that we already had to make these "Spring Treats".
Homemade Double Chocolate Truffle Brownies wrapped in waxed paper and tied up with a few bugs, moss and some green spring grass....FUN!
