1) Where the “Chicken Dance” comes from. We cleaned out the chicken coop for the first time (seriously, we rock at chicken farming, eh?) and the chickens were so stinkin’ happy. Joy filled the air. Dancing commenced. Suddenly all those years of clappin, flapping my arms and mini-twisting made all the sense in the world.

2) How to get black Sharpie off of Wee Babe’s cheeks. And his feet. And a computer monitor. As well as how to condition sensitive skin and where to keep all Sharpies. No.Matter.What.

3) The difference between microbats and megabats, how to multiply two two-digit numbers as well as how to subtract two two-digit numbers (two different kids, just in case you were wondering), what life was like for French Canadians, how to make Wee Babe sip yogurt throw a straw with only 1/4-1/2″ of straw to suck, how to empty a urinal, and how to draw whales and pizzas.

4) Who most likely wrote the book of Malachi and the main idea of said book. Some of us are learning that it isn’t as clever as imagined to choose a book of the Bible with only four chapters in it when Mama asks, “What book would you like to read together for morning devotion this time?” Some of us thought Job was really tedious and therefore figured shorter is better. Some of us are learning that just isn’t always the case.

5) What Staphylococcus is. As well as staph protocol. I was the only one who learned what the inside of a staph abscess looks like, how it is drained, and how far hemostats can be put inside someone’s arm. I then immediately learned how to intercept a fainting/vomiting episode. We are all learing who can make the silliest face when their nostrils are swabbed as well as who can say, “You touched your nose!!” the quickest. Quite the bacteriology lesson (I did not make that word up. Surprised? Me too.) we’re living out. HB is taking the brunt of this educational exercise. Specifically, her left forearm. Yes, you’re welcome (that I’m not posting photographs, even though they have been requested…thankyouverymuch).

6) What it truly means to walk in peace, to “lean not on your own understanding” (Prov 3:5), and to show grace to others. My God sure seems to have a sense of humor lately, but He’s helping me rise to the task of “laughing at days to come” (Prov 31:25) or the days that have come. Whichever.

What are you learning this week?
