From our family to yours...
This year was a big one for us as it marked the first year that all three kids are now in school. School is great. I’m always so proud and sometimes quite surprised at all that they learn on a daily basis. For an example:
CJ: Mom, we need more Irish muffins. [English?]
CC: Mom, once I’m a grownup, will you guys be like old grannies?
CC: I’m going to throw this chicken bone into the yard so it will grow into a chicken tree.
JP: [to CC] You were an egg once. Did you know that? It was in egg in Mom’s stomach.
Family Life Education.
CC: JP’s killing a rabbit for me so I can have one and it won’t run away.
CC: I ‘fought’ I heard a lion in the woods, so I came inside! (naturally)
Personal Safety & First Aid.
JP: When I grow up, I’m going to be a butterfly buster. Almost like a Ghost Buster.
Mom: Um, why are you wearing that bandana around your head?
JP: Because I’ve been wearing it for a few days now… Because it was crazy day at school. And I looked pretty good. I got a girlfriend that day.
CC: Do Indians drink out of their shoes?
JP: No, we went to a craft store. Not Michaels. I think it was called Staples or something. Actually I think Dad just drove around a lot because he was lost, but don’t tell him I said that.
Auntie L. (The Crazy One): Are we going to drive until we stop?
The Law of Physics.
JP: Mom, how did God create Heaven?
Mom: I’m not sure. No one really knows.
JP: Can we look it up online?
I’d like to take this moment to thank all teachers everywhere. I know it isn’t easy. Our kids are no exception. May we all continue to learn every day as we ring in the New Year!
Love to all and wishes for a joyous holiday season!
We survived the end of the world. Now what's next?
