Ellis has the tiniest fever. When I took his temperature, I said, "You have a little fever."

Ellis said, "But I love school!"

I asked, "What do you love about school?"

Ellis said, "Homework. I do love homework."


This morning while I was driving Jared to school, we were commenting on the beautiful sunrise. Jared kept talking about it and describing it. He was quiet for a moment and then he said, "I could write a poem about how beautiful this sunrise is."

Maybe I will be in for a treat when he gets home from school.

I asked Gordon this morning, "Gord, why do I love you so much?"

Gordon came over, pointed at my chest and said, "It's your heart."


This morning Gordon looked at the menu for school lunch and saw it was chili. He said, "Oh. It's chill. Did you know that chill is my favorite soup?"
