For vocabulary words, the kids are to know the meaning of the words and how to correctly use the word in a sentence. As we went over the vocabulary words for this week, Nathan had all the meanings correct. Until we hit "ponder". He tried to break it down that the word 'pond' was in it so maybe it was something to do with water or ponds. When we told him it's thinking hard about something, he said that it WAS like a pond.
Huh?? Pond?? Water?? For Ponder??? Sean & I don't see it. We asked Nathan to clarify.
Well, if I remember that my brain is like a big pond and the ideas are the ducks. When I ponder, I wait for the ducks (ideas) to come into the pond (brain) and that's pondering.
When our family discovered ourselves on a new path with a 2E child, we found very little support, information or ways to get help. I've searched for other moms online who might help me navigate these uncharted waters. Finding none, I felt the nudge of the Lord prompting me to start a blog. Here's our story of ups and downs, laughter and tears, utter desperation and despair that has been transformed into hope, healing and help.
