What I Learned Today


I love this precious girl!  I love seeing the world through her 7 year old eyes.  That's why everyday after school I have all the kids blog about what they learned that day.  It could be something academic, spiritual, an interesting fact or just about anything...as long as it's new.

This was Chloe's exact entry from two days ago:

 Hi! Do you want to know what I learned today?
  Okay, so if your mommy tells you to do something
 you should not storm off or else she might send
 you to your room and if you're too loud whining you
 might not hear her say when you can leave your room.

What practical wisdom she gleaned from her circumstances, I'm so proud of her.  I always tell her that we all mess up.  What matters is what we do after we mess up...do we learn from that mistake or do we feel sorry for ourselves.  If we choose the latter, we will most definitely find ourselves going through the exact same situation again.

Here are a few of her other posts that made me chuckle.  I think that maybe she has read one too many Junie B. Jones books.  Her writing style is very similar.

Hi.  Today on the morning announcements 
they said if you do not have snow boots/pants
you cannot play on the playground.  So I learned
even if you can't get what you want sometimes
you should still be happy.

Hi.  My reading group was today and when
the other girls just kept talking when it was  my
turn to read I just started to pout.  So then after 
that I decided that I should learn patience.

Did you know that being responsible is really
important?  Well it is and sometimes when you're
not listening and being responsible it could turn out
bad.  What if you were going to your horse lessons
and you are playing with your friend and you are late
to lessons?  How would that make you feel?
