Suspicious . Word of the Week

Our crazy life plus one suspicion.jpg

“Time stands still best in moments that look suspiciously like ordinary life.”  Brian Andreas

My oldest daughter, Lady L, has brought into our lives her ‘word of the week’.

For a fifth grader, sometimes these words are challenging, but we welcome her intuitive nature as she seeks out something new and applies it all week. Wish I could say I inspired this, but it is all her. (She who wears Pink Boots)

I have heard the word “SUSPICIOUS” no less than 100 times this week. I suspect after due diligence sleuthing out why, She has a new love for the book series of Sherlock Jones. She has read through all four books with lightning speed and is our official family ‘mini detective’. Everywhere we go and in all situations around us, she is watching and observing.

  • People driving slowly through the neighborhood- suspicious

  • A lone car in a parking lot away from everyone - suspicious

  • The UPS man parked in front of our house a little longer than normal - suspicious

  • Her Oma not answering her cell phone or a text - suspicious

  • The lone package on the front porch - suspicious

In the past Lady L has never had a huge passion for reading until we found these books. She is not consistently practicing her detective skills and brining us so much joy with all of her sleuthing. She alos shared with me that she loves the books because they address some of the challenges that kids her age face with morality, honesty and character. Sherlock Jones is not afraid to stand up and defend his faith in all situations.

I am curious…. what book series she will read next and what will her next word of the week be?
