Illiterate, edible and eager

August 24, 2007

A few things about Micah and Jacob's 1st day of school. 8-20-07

Jacob was talking to Tyler about school, telling him he loved it and everything, and then he said, "But I didn't learn to read."

During the afternoon, he, Jacob, was eating fruit snacks and telling Ben that he was going to smush a whole bunch together and make an "edible ball."

Micah learned a new word from his teacher on the 1st day and told me that he was, "eager to go to school," and that was why he woke up too early.

Shaver Lake Cross

August 20, 2007

We went to Shaver Lake on Saturday, 8-18-07. The lake was so low that some of the docks were just laying up on dry ground. Jacob, seeing one of these said, "Someone gigantic must have died there." The dock looked like a huge cross. Jacob knows that when someone dies in a traffic accident people will often place a cross at the scene of the accident. So, he came to the conclusion that since it was a huge cross, someone gigantic died there!
