Later that same week, we took a trip to the library where I decided it would be a great idea to get some books on Colombia and do some cultural education with them. I found 3 books full of pictures of the country, the major cities, the food, the coffee, the people. I couldn't wait to get home and look at the books with them and show them about the country where their baby brother will be from. I told the girls on the way home exactly why I'd gotten the book. AB was excited to see what the people look like, so she could start to get some sort of visual for what her baby brother might look like. I have to admit that I, too, found myself staring at the pictures of the kiddos playing and eating throughout the books and dreaming about my little boy - wondering if he would enjoy some of the same activities as the kids in the book....like playing soccer and climbing trees.
As soon as we got home from the library, it was time for lunch. Past time, actually, and I was starving. I sat the books on the counter and started making sandwiches. What I did not notice while
...of a scary-looking gold statue-thingy. Poor girl. Thankfully she was not traumatized at all and smiled really big when I turned a few pages over and found some kiddos playing soccer in a field. Lesson learned: when doing cultural education with your small kiddos...preview the learning material and supervise as their soaking it in!!
