I love to watch a child who is contemplating the world. I've heard it said to never interrupt a kid who is in deep thought. I feel the same way about independent play going on, or instrumental creations or those made up songs he sings. No comments, since as soon as I do, the trance is over and the moment seems lost. Something amazing is going on inside that head and I love to follow the little ponderer from a distance.
Also fun is to look through the peep hole or window at nursery at church. Always a surprise. Sometimes happy Lukas. Sometimes frustrated Lukas. Sometimes standing-there-completely-lost-look-on-his-face Lukas. The Lord has extra blessings for nursery leaders I am pretty certain. Sure love ours.
