The severe weather this past Friday was the cause for much speculation and wonder around our house. When I asked Sarah if she knew what a tornado was, she started out on the right track, telling me about wind swirling around and around, and then we veered off into uncharted territory. Fifteen minutes into her gesture-filled, exclamation-point-heavy, pixie-dust-laden explanation, my head was spinning, and Will was screaming for crackers from his carseat. From what I can gather, Sarah is a superhero who will take her magic sword and pierce the tornado, stopping it in its tracks. She will then harness its power for good, and we will all live happily ever after. Cue the curtain.
Here is a little video shot at dinner. Apparently, the artwork looked like a weather map to her.
