As my children grow, I am finding that it’s the neatest thing to watch them discover their world with such awe and innocence. Tonight as we sat on a blanket under the night sky preparing to watch Ankeny’s fireworks display, Amariah suddenly pointed to the moon, making her grunt-like comments about what she observed. After talking about it for a while, she turned her attention to a bright star, pointing with her whole body and making similar grunt-like comments. As the fireworks began, both Abel and Amariah fixed their eyes on the beautiful display, Abel commenting nonstop and Amariah commenting only about the prettiest explosions. I wonder what was going through her mind as the fireworks boomed and lit up the sky. I wonder what would go through my mind if I observed the world with the eyes of a child….
