Grandpa’s Notes about Leah

Leah spent the weekend with Grandma and Grandpa while we were potty training Lars. He sent me an email with these comments about their time together. Classic stuff.

Forgot to tell you – Leah told us that the holiday today was about King Luther.  He’s a “doctor” but not a REAL doctor.  She said that they’d seen his picture “in real clothes” at school – meaning (I think) not in scrubs ready to hit the OR.  Also, she told us she knows about both bones (in the human body).  In animals that we eat, they remove the bones – but animals and fish have them too.  They pull them out before you eat them.

She also knows about the planets.  Saturn has rings, Jupiter has a big red spot, and Mars has nothing.  Neal’s comment was that when HE was her age he knew where his fingers were.  We looked at a book of space pictures, and she knew about the man standing by the American flag on the moon.  We were both pretty blown-away.  Not meaning to take ANYTHING away from Lars, she is a constant marvel to be around, and we count it as treasure.
