Sunday we got up early for mass, and when we got home, we needed to make "something" to bring over to friends that had invited us to their pool. My 12 yr old immediately insisted that she wanted to bake some cookies using "candy covered chocolate drops in an array of beautiful rainbow colors!" Her wanting to bake did not surprise me as she is the official family baker around here. What did delight me tons was when she started baking and asked if she could tell me about the book...and how wonderful it was...and how she "now knows" about Theodoric, a friar, and his work with rainbows. Her excitement and precise telling of rainbows; her newly developed relationship with a humble monk in the middle ages was very refreshing. It wasn't an assignment given to her; it was just a book with a story she chose to read the day before. Now, that knowledge of rainbows and Theodoric Dietrich has become hers.
