I forgot to talk about ‘Talk Like A Pirate Day’. It was fun. However, I can’t post photos about it so I guess it’s all moot. Let me tell you a different story.

Addy (not her name), is newly four, gravelly-voiced and slightly crazy. I love her. On the playground this morning she came up to me, very sad and discouraged. “Sarah says she won’t be my best friend.”

I gave my standard answer: “That’s ok, Jesus is your best friend.”

She scrunched up her face. “Nyeh…. I’m not playin’ with him….”

    We re-wrote nursery rhymes in pirate language. The kids did a really good job. Some of them were really clever.
