Bed time stories with Caitlin

Caitlin is an amazing story teller. Two weeks ago I was getting ready for bed and she came over to Christen's and my room to tell us a bed time story. It is always a joy when our suite mates bless us with their presence. This particular evening, Caitlin read us a bed time story about how to describe colors to blind children. It was a great story with vivid imagery, but I certainly think that Caitlin's sweet, soothing, expressive voice lent a lot to the wonderful story. Next time any of you have a chance to hear Caitlin tell a story, jump at it! You won't regret it!

Well put, Martina. I absolutely agree! Caitlin, you're an AMAZINGLY BEYOND AMAZING story teller. Your intonation and your soft, sweet, Christ-filled voice draw me in always :) You're going to be a fabulous mother someday!

Dear Martina,

Caitlin said...


well, I love you both very much too :) I'm certainly blessed to get to live next door to you!

However, I claim that the blessing is all in the artistic writing of the author, but will refrain from further argumentation ;)

and yes, Hailstones & Halibut Bones is one of my favoritist books ever! and I would be tickled if anyone else would like to go on a colorful adventure!

"For you, and you, and I know well,
each has a taste, each has a smell,
and each has a wonderful story to tell."

Mmmm, this makes me remember when you read that book last year. I love it. And I miss having bedtime stories and lullabies with Caitlin.
