i remember reading once how many children do not know the old nursery rhymes. frankly, there are some that i am fine with them not knowing (with the whipping and not feeding and all). but especially in our days at the retirement community, it was a sacred moment to see eyes light up when the old and young knew the same poems. in honor of j week and our candlesticks, we learned about jack jumping over the candlesticks. then we did too.
(insert child’s name) be nimble!
(insert child’s name) be quick!
(insert child’s name) jump over the candlestick!
quick and nimble, indeed!
