After a gray and soggy day of outside activities on our annual 5th grade camping trip, the sky cleared up for the night hike. The sounds of 80 shuffling feet in the dirt and the soft nighttime forest noises were muffled by the shadows of the trees. The sky was starting to fill with stars when I felt a small hand quietly slip into mine…I looked down to see big brown eyes through the darkness…
Mrs. Román, did you see that pretty red sky?
Yes Sarah, I did. It was beautiful.
I think the sun must come up even when it rains, it just is hiding behind the clouds.
I think you’re right Sarah.
Sometimes all the wisdom in the world is wrapped up in a ten year old kid.
