A Few Pictures / A Child's Wisdom

If you wonder why she is so foreshortened in the above shots, it's because *I* didn't take them. The camera was in the hands of our Korean office assistant, the oft-afore referenced 'Beautiful Jisu', who is just short of six feet. It didn't occur to her to crouch down to get a few eye-level pictures. Nonetheless, that Kath-charm comes through... She was able to score quite a few more toasted marshmallows, bits of hot dog, and s'mores than she really should have!

Another photo-collage - K at Everland last month. We put these together afterwards and print them out for her scrapbook, which is her on-going art project to learn some basic principles of design. Mostly she enjoys embellishing with stickers - which excess of tastefulness many an older scrapbooker has fallen into - but she's learning other techniques and concepts as well!

On one of the rides, flashing a somewhat nervous grin but determined to enjoy herself anyhow.

Katherine’s Bedtime Musings, July 13, 2008

(after being tucked in bed and given her goodnight kiss, begins to talk to herself. I quickly open up Word and begin to transcribe her original and unedited musings…)

We should do this every day:

Eat one candy a day -
Don’t eat six candies or seven candies.
Take care of others...
Help others.
Brush your teeth.
Take care of puppies
Do what others say….
Do what your mom and dad say.
Play - by yourself.
Do good things.

One more thing that’s special. God loves us!

(continuing to muse, beginning to repeat herself)

Don’t do bad things.
Don’t steal something from others.
Obey. Write that one down. Obey.
Love others!

(puts her head down on her pillow peacefully, still repeating her credos to herself)
