Jodi: “It was so beautiful out there! I walked around for a couple of hours taking pictures of the snow.”
Jodi: “One of our resident blue birds! I always think about Sonia Vogl when I see these.”
Me: “Jodi, tell me about Sonia Vogl.”
Jodi: “Well, she is actually a professor. My Mom cleaned her house for her every Thursday. She treated Jessie and me like we were her granddaughters and took us on hikes every week across her beautiful property. She taught us so much about science in nature. She was and still is one of my favorite people. I don’t think a week goes by where Jessie and I don’t talk about her or something she taught us. I think about her when I see bluebirds, because she had bluebird houses set up around her property. We’d always get to peek at the eggs, or baby birds. She’d also let us kick out the wrens that tried to take over the birdhouses. She was so busy, but would always take a break from all of it to spend time with us. It’s just something that would make any child feel special; it still resonates in me. I hope I will treat children like she treated us, because it made us feel loved. :)”
Jodi: “The twins really seemed to enjoy their first snow experience.”
“Come on, and let’s enjoy the snow together. Give me your hand.”
