In the first message, I have my ten year old son asking if I’ve created his WordPress blog yet. For the record, I did and told him in person- although the reminder was needed.
The third message is a link to the image below.
We’d had a brief discussion the other day because my eight year old was really unhappy that he has learned about metamorphosis multiple times in school. I asked if he knew that caterpillars essentially turned to soup in the chrysalis. He did not but was pleased to learn that little fact. I got the chrysalis image a day or two later and was able to respond with a link to an article on the whole caterpillar soup thing.
This is just one of those little things that interweaves and extends our normal lives in ways I find interesting and meaningful. It’s an interweaving and extension of our conversations. It’s easy to overlook how interesting this is.
