It’s very quiet here this week. With summer camp over the rooms are strangely silent.
We use this time to plan, organize and re-organize things to prepare for the upcoming year. As I was cleaning out a cabinet I stopped to read our “They said something funny” list. It made me miss the children even more. I thought I would share some with you:
While a child and a teacher were looking at a book in which a character ate too much food, “Well, that was a really bad decision.”
One child to another, “That picture is really handsome.”
Child describing sizes, “Small, meteor, large.”
During a devotion worship a child was moving his hands in front of him. He said, “I’m using my imagination. I’m feeling God. You know he’s everywhere.”
“When the tornado comes you have to stop making the beer.”
“My dad says I can’t put my finger in strange holes.”
A child with two very loose teeth said with a worried look, “But I love my teeth.”
“When my dad grows up he wants to be a cowboy.”
“It’s hard to learn to share.”
When one child asked, “Who’s God?” Another quickly replied, “Oh, he’s like a big Jesus!”
I can just imagine you smiling right now. And, these were just a few of the funny sayings we have collected. Through children’s innocence and inquiring minds we often enjoy some humor as well as some real truths. (You can admit it, sharing is hard!)
I took a moment to enjoy these while missing your kids – I hope you enjoyed them as well.
