"How about April Ice Cream day?"
"Can we say April Tuesday Day?"
Finally they decided to greet my dad (who usually leaves for work around 5:45, before any of us are awake, but had stayed late today - which was nice) with a morning surprise of "Papa, it is snowing outside!...
April Cookie Day!!!"
Canaan was quite thrilled with himself, and I must say that I am pretty proud too.
I don't think he really had a problem with the word "fool", but I have never been a fan. That may have rubbed off on him - afterall, Matt. 5:22 says, "anyone who says, 'You Fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell." I think the whole point of that verse is to teach us that KINDNESS is supposed to be our purpose.
I don't think that just saying "fool" will damn you to hell. I just think that the idea is that we should focus on lifting each other up, rather then tearing each other down.
I am so glad that idea has rubbed off on my five year old already! He is so observant!
I have some pictures from this weekend, but I will have to return to them later. For now, here are some cute ones from yesterday.
Zion playing "Go Fish"
A round of "Don't Break the Ice"
My cheerful "Crazy Eights" player
Quite a team, Noni and Zi
... Even when one of them is in a headlock
All worn out, after playing hard all day long.
This was about 7:15 pm, and he just completely crashed,
between the couch and the coffee table!
Hope your day is blessed, and not filled with too many foolish things.
Happy April Cookie Day!
