Some sweetness for the weekend

Something different for your weekend but, I think, still sweet. I asked Ryan to write a poem the other day. He wrote a couple and this was the first one. It's called "Ryan". He refused to let me see until he'd finished it.

Yes, it looks like a grammatically incorrect sentence. After all, it's poetry - just go with the feeling, aye? Heh heh. Well, actually it's three different sentences mashed up together without the punctuation: "I love doing things that I love. I love everything. Everything, I love."

Right after that, he wrote his second poem titled, "Magic Tricks", so I guess that was the inspiration for the first poem? Anyway, the second poem was much less tricky. It went like this,

Magic tricks
Magic tricks are fun.
By: Ryan


Hope you find poetry and beauty this weekend. Ryan and I are going to watch Dora the Explorer live on stage tonight. He is very much looking forward to it!

Hello, my views on education (and our intentions for our children) can't be adequately elucidated in a short comment, I think! I need a bit more space, haha. A short comment for what it's worth, I think the local education system has a good backbone and there are strong basics. I think, nevertheless, that parents need to focus on the bigger picture when it comes to education, instead of stressing over the little details. Still, a lot has improved, and I think a lot will improve.
