Next week we begin our Eyes and Seeing KONOS unit. Brad just “happened” to have an appointment with his wonderful pediatric ophthalmologist this afternoon. She was enough kind to write down words to describe his vision challenges so we can look them up.

It led to reading Pale Male, the true story of a Red-Tailed Hawk in New York City, which also included an illustration of a woodpecker. Four year old Brian was quick to pull out the guide to show us that it was a Red-Bellied Woodpecker.
Oh, the sweet sweet love of Jesus that is forever teaching our hearts, whether during regular “school” hours, in a doctor’s office, or during a twilight glance out our front window.
