Set Fire to the Rain

I was listening to Adele's song "Set Fire to the Rain" while preparing for a cycle class and later asked my kids why the song talked about setting fire to rain (something that is hard to do in everyday life). Bekah and I both immediately jumped to talking about how it could be a metaphor. Matt pipes up all of a sudden though and says "But Mom, that is easy! Just take those small things out. You know, the oxygen. Then you can burn the hydrogen." Not bad for an eight year old with no formal chemistry background :-)

I love how my kids take totally different approaches to the same question.  Makes it fun to be around them.
