I never thought of it that way before.

Earlier today, as my girls and I were enjoying a tea party on the front porch, Malin looked up to say something to me, and got distracted by the clouds over my head. The sky was so blue and the clouds were so white… She stared at the sky for a moment and then said, “It looks like the clouds are moving!” I told her, “They are.”  I was surprised to realize that she had never noticed the clouds moving in the sky before. It was very sweet to be a part of that moment. I could tell she was thinking hard as she looked up at the sky, and then she asked me, “Are they really moving? Or is that just the angels in them?”
