Out of the Mouths of my Babes

Each Wednesday, Mandy spends a couple of hours at Trae's school volunteering. Yesterday, Mandy was helping Trae's teacher with an upcoming Mother's Day project when he relayed to Mandy a funny story from the day before.

In Math, Trae's class has been learning about "profits." Her teacher has helped them understand that if a person buys something for one price and then sells it at a greater price, then that person has made a "profit."

Well, that isn't what Trae first thought of when the word "profit" was used by her teacher. Trae raised her hand and said to her teacher, "I thought profits were only found in the Bible!"

Not to be outdone, little sister spent the 180-mile drive to the Sacramento Airport on Tuesday by singing to us. Tori was singing all of her favorite songs from Bible Class: Blue Skies and Rainbows, Noah Built the Ark, the Lord's Army, Jesus Loves Me, etc.

When it came time to sing a few bars of "Jesus Loves the Little Children," Tori put her own unique twist on the second verse that says, "Jesus Died for all the Children."

Tori's version? "Jesus diapered all the children."
