Ella has loved her week at Strawberry Banke Camp. Everyday they start out by walking over to one of the houses in the Park to read a picture book from that era or relevance. Today they read a story about a Slave on the Underground Railroad. It got Ella thinking and chatting the whole way home. She was making all sorts of connections and declarations about the state of things in this world. We covered everything from the Civil War to Martin Luther King to Santa Claus. You are curious about that last one.
As we were finishing up our conversation with the idea of not hating people because of their skin color and what a great man Martin Luther King was, she declared-“It is good to DO things in this World to make it Better!” I replied that she certainly had it all figured out. “I know a lot of good things, Mama and I bet Santa Claus was really happy to hear me say that!”
I know he was.
