Cole the Visionary

This is an old picture of Cole at our playground last fall. I took it on my phone, so sadly, it's not high quality enough to print out, but I love it anyway.

I've been impressed at how much this little guy picks up without being taught or told things. He learned his ABCs before he was two years old without me ever trying to teach them to him, and now at four years old, he has taught himself how to write.

Michael and I have been talking for a month or two about the possibility of moving but hadn't mentioned it to the kids. A couple weeks ago, we were leaving church, and Cole said to me, "Last night I had a dream that we moved, and we went to church, and you said to me, 'I'm not in the Primary here.'" I was floored. Had he heard us talking about moving, or was he having visions???

Today, I had the Sufjan Stevens song "For the Widows in Paradise" playing in the car, and the last line repeats, "I did everything for you, I did everything for you." Cole asked, "Are they pretending to be Jesus when they say, 'I did everything for you'?" That's exactly what the song is about, and I'm amazed that my little four-year-old picked up on it.

  1. Huzzah!.. a new post. Since I try to find any reason not to write my thesis, I usually check your blog a few times a day hoping you have made a change.

    If you're still debating between Pennsylvania and North Carolina, then maybe you should just ask Cole. Jaime and I need our own visionary since we don't like to make decisions. Ask Cole what he sees in my future. Maybe just ask him if Jaime should get a PhD.
