Last night I taught a small photography class for our ladies church group. It was simple...and we talked about tips for light and composition with any camera. I had a lot of fun. I wanted to demonstrate the information I was teaching. I asked Sophie and Kate if they would be my models. (Ellie lucked out and was on a hike with friends.) They were cooperative and I was soooooo grateful! (You never know what young kids will do! kwim!?) They went home with Danny right after the demonstration.
When I returned home 2 hours later, I heard Sophie talking in her room (to herself...I love that!). I sat on her bed and visited with her. The first thing she said to me, "Mom, thanks for taking my picture tonight," in the sweetest voice ever. "I wanted to stay there with you. Did you have donuts?" I explained that we didn't. Then she continued, "I should have brought all of the ladies cotton candy. Mom, do they all like cotton candy?" :) I didn't know...and then she said, "Mom, you don't like cotton candy so not everybody would like it." It was so cute that she remembered my distaste for the fluffy stuff...and even cuter that she wanted to share treats with everybody. She would have been a better teacher tonight than I was...good teachers always bring treats!
