Sofia wrote the Tuesday meditation.

On Tuesdays I practice meditation with the girls. Yesterday, unbidden, Sofia wrote a meditation for us.

"Close your eyes and take 10 deep breaths. Now think about how happy you are. Think about your day. What was your day like? Think about it. Close your eyes and listen to the music and you will fall asleep. (Sofia sings) Okay, now, open your eyes. And remember, meditation is a head replacement."

What did you do in dancing today, Sofia?

We read a book about dancing. I was in the yellow group.

Who's in your group?

All girls. And Martin. We passed notes back and forth.

Oh yeah?

Yeah. He doesn't even know how in love with him I am.

I turn around and look at her in surprise.

She says, Oops! Did I just say I was so in love with him? She covers her mouth as if she didn't mean to say it out loud and then with a big smile says, It's because I am!

What does it mean to be in love with someone? I ask

It means you want to marry them.

But you're too young to get married.

It means you would marry them.

Taking things apart at nyhs

I got a screw out!
I got the lid off!

Good point

I don't want to go to school tomorrow says Sofia. I say you only have a month left of kindergarten and you should enjoy it because it's the only last month of kindergarten you will ever have. Sofia  says, yes but we can always dream about it.
