Never ‘earthbound’

Each year I have the delight of spending several weeks across the country with my newest grandchildren. Last summer Maia, who was four, and I were enjoying the warm sunshine and talking about day and night. I told her the sun doesn’t really rise and fall in the sky; it just seems that way from our perspective. I demonstrated with my hands how the earth actually turns around so the earth is blocking the sun at night. 

She understood. But then she asked me, “But, Grandma, why does the earth do that?” I responded that I was sure one of the reasons was so little girls and boys on the other side of the earth could have the sun, too. They can have green trees and pick beautiful flowers in India and China while the United States sleeps.
