Painted By God



My darling cousin (and one of Seth's godmothers), Logan, and her boyfriend, Jacob are visiting for spring break. I promised her she could star on my blog while she was here. =)

We spent the day at the pool the other day, and as I was putting sunblock on Jace, he was examining Logan's skin. "Your skin is black!" He exclaimed. (To be fair, he really has not concept of brown. Most things even darkISH in color are black to him). Logan laughed and agreed with him, and he kept going on about her skin being black.

Ava, my empathetic girl, came up to Logan and put her arms around her while stroking her shoulder. She examined Logan's skin closely, then her own. After a moment, she said "Wow. I guess God hasn't painted my skin yet."
