With a late afternoon nap in the car while we traveled home from a friend's house on Saturday, I knew if would be the perfect night for Reece to see the stars. He was so excited and kept asking when it would get dark. He jumped in the bath, and jumped out just as quick so he wouldn't miss the stars.
I started a little fire and we set up the blanket on the grass as the sun began to fade. And we waited, just like the boy in the story. And then we waited some more.
And finally, a star! Just a little one Reece said, but it was a star. Can you see it in the picture above?
And then another, and another, and before we knew it the whole sky was lite up with tiny twinkling stars. Reece was thrilled. And I was thrilled to, yet again, experience something through his eyes.
