We were studying Noah Webster about 2 weeks ago. When I introduced his name my oldest, Boog, said, “Huh. He must have been really good at the Web.”
Napster. Webster. I see where she got it.
“Well, sweetie,” I reply, “Noah Webster lived waaaay before the Internet. In fact, he lived about two-hundred years before Granddad.”
It’s always good to use Grandparents as a time reference, because, they’re so OLD and what-not.
It didn’t work. That comment was quickly followed up by Goose with, “Did they know each other?”
“No, sweetie, Noah Webster was waaaay dead before Granddad was even born.”
Interestingly enough, it didn’t even phase them that they were a cool two-hundred years off the mark.
Another area we teach is Biblical knowledge. And they have been in church their whole short lives. And they go to a discipleship, rockin’ fun, Wed. night group called Konnect.
But, somewhere along the way there was a piece of information left out.
Pastor JT, “Girls, what did you talk about at church tonight.?”
Boog, “Um, something about some brothers that didn’t get along.”
Mind you, they heard this story, made crafts around this story, ate snacks around this story, and still, this is the response he gets.
Pastor JT, “You mean Cain and Abel?”
Boog, “Yeah, that’s them.”
Pastor JT tries to cement the night in the truck on the way home. So, he said, “You know, Adam and Eve’s kids.”
Something clicked in Goose. She turned to her dad and in that moment she got it.
“You mean Adam and Eve had KIDS!?”
Yeah, we’re doing good so far.
Big Mama has a similar story.
