Rain, rain go away

I really thought I would finally have some stuff to blog about this week. Jack had both a poetry evening and a field trip on this week’s agenda; but neither panned out due to the rainy weather and because so many of the kids have been absent due to illness. Therefore, both events have been rescheduled for a later date.

I have, however, been meaning to write about some of the rather funny things Jack has said lately. So since I can’t seem to think of anything else to blog about…

Every Sunday after church, when we pile into the car, we always ask Jack about his class – what he learned, whether or not he enjoyed it, etc. Typically his answer is, “I don’t remember.” But one Sunday, he was more than thrilled to tell us about the Bible story he had learned.

In Genesis, the story of the destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah is told. For those who are unfamiliar with the passages, angels visit a man named Lot and warn him and his family of the catastrophe that is about to happen. Lot lingers, but later he along with his wife and daughters are more-or-less forced out of the city by the angels so that their life might be spared. They are told to flee to a nearby city and to never look back. Lot’s wife, however, does look back and is instantly turned into a pillar of salt.

I tell you all of that because that one Sunday when Jack was asked what he learned about, he emphatically said, “Someone was turned into a caterpillar of salt!!” We tried to correct him; but he was certain that it was most definitely a caterpillar.Davis  Oct 3 09 515 for web

The other story is relatively short…

Jack and Beau were playing with some blocks the other day and Jack wanted to show me what he had built. I told him how good it was and that I was proud of him and he replied with, “Yeah, it’s my arts and crap.”

I’m thinking I need to get the poor boy’s ears checked.Climber for web

How funny!!!! Arts and crap!!!! :) I love the things they say!!!

Chase has a BAD thing that he says, when he tries to say truck. The tr sound he doesn't make so well, and it sounds more like the word that starts with f. It is sooooo embarassing when we are out somewhere and he starts screaming for his **uck. Kids... :)
