Preston's Questions

Why are there more treble clef keys then base clef notes?

Why are the keys on the keyboard all mixed up?

How do the builders make a roof? It looks tricky.

How does Jesus make so many things?

Can animals chase me?

At old McDonalds farm he was chasing the ducks. I told him that it was against the rules to chase the ducks. He asked why. Then after a long and thoughtful pause he asked me if the animals could chase him. A lady nearby who overheard him busted out laughing and said, "that is a very good question. He should be a lawyer when he grows up!"

How do my bones bend? When I explained muscles and ligaments he looked at his hand with fascination and moved his hands all around.

How high do numbers go?

Happy Baby Luke

Luke is welcoming in four new top teeth this week. And he is still smiling! Porter helps. We agreed last night, it sure is fun to make this baby laugh!

The bottom pic is a hilarious one of Luke's little foot poking out over his bassinet. Darling! And probably time to move him to the crib?
