As another hurricane passes us by we are experiencing more rain. During morning circle I pointed out that the mountains were no longer visible (we are in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and can usually very clearly see them).
R – What happened to the mountains?
M – The rain came and washed them away
L – It is hiding behind the clouds
M – No. I need to tell you. The rain came and washed them away.
R – Will they come back?
M – No!
L – I think they are hiding behind the clouds
R – Will they come back if the rain stops?
L – Yes. No. I don’t know
M – We need to pull them back with string
L – Or a box
A – Or a couch
L – No, a box
M – But will it be big enough?
L – Yes it will. It will work
A – Maybe a silk will work better
L – Yes, we need a tiny big o. That will be good
A – We can throw it on the mountain and pull it down
R – Will that bring the mountains back?
M – I don’t know
L – Yes it will
M – We need to put string on the silk
L – Like a kite?
M – Yes like a kite
L – Let’s make a kite
A – Yeah with wood and silks
