Well, we're on Day 2 of our Home school year. Things are going great. We're actually doing a Bible class this year. Pretty fun, especially because the twins join the "class" and we sing songs, learn the Bible and memorize it.

So, I figured we'd start at the beginning. Seriously. Like, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth . . ." We're memorizing the first 5 verses of the Bible.

So if you're not familiar with those verses here they are:

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.

It's going great. The kids love it! But that's not the point of the story.

Today, my crazy-cute nephews came over and one of them dropped his galoshes at the door because today's a really rainy day and he's just a considerate kid!

But these particular galoshes have like . . . a bug face on them . . .or something like that. Anyway, they're cute and unusual.

Well, later in the day Luke is walking by and our conversation goes like this:

Luke: What are those?

Me: Those are your cousin's boots.

Luke: But . . . they're . . . so . . . . . . . formless

Me: (Silently) Formless? ???? Formless? OOOOOOhhhhhh, he learned a new word this morning and he's just got to use it!

Me: (outloud) I think they have form, Son.

Luke: Well, then they're so . . . I don't know.

Why do I think that's the funniest thing?! I don't know.

You're funny, but I can top that.
We got a new vacuum. All the kids were excited to vacuum everything (why didn't we buy one sooner??) Isaac asked: Can I take it upstairs and mow my room?
That was last week. Today he said his rug was dirty and he needed the mower.
Not a quick learner huh?
