Today is Day Seven on our Advent Calendar, and it's fitting that the activity required no imagery; my trusty bloggy camera is on its deathbed, and we await its replacement later this week. Today's activity was to write a winter poem. Big B's words were simple, but his thought process provoked so much curiosity for me, and a great conversation:
It is winter. Snow is on the ground, Snowflakes are falling. Roots are connected.
I love that he has noticed this often overlooked detail of winter scenes; the roots peeking through the snow. He told me that even underneath all of that snow and trees the roots are all connected, keeping everything alive.
