    Let’s go with grandma’s story…it’s fuzzier and warmer.

    I like the retreating levels of chlorophyll and varying amounts of sugars in the leaves explanation better. I like to know how god arranges his pallet.

    And then there is the much more fun fantasy explanation.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    One of the children’s books I loved best was about a family of rabbits who painted the woods with all the colours of the rainbow. In spring they painted the buds bright green, in the fall they painted the leaves different colours, and in winter, they painted the shadows on the snow. Even now, whenever I see long turquoise-grey shadows stretching across a snowy lane, I remember the illustrations in that book.

    Grandma’s fantasy explanation is little less of a problem than Elly’s fantasy . Eventully Lizzie will get to school and they will talk about photosynthesis and why the leaves change colour, and Lizzie will be in the awkward situation of saying, “But my mommy says…”

    Can’t dispute the teachings of Grandma.

    I like Lizzy’s explanation better.

    Very cute. God paints the leaves one by one, and God makes the snowflakes one by one so no two are the same. A lot of people think God could be busy doing more important things, but that limits God, and really God can do anything and everything, He is not limited to one thing at a time like most of us.

    We try to explain, using science, what the Master Planner did when He built the universe and everything we see.

    And we fail. Why? Because we cannot scientifically explain beauty.

    Science does a fair job, but Grandma is right.

    Teach children the truth, not some myth.
