Another First

Be still my heart, by big boy just keeps getting bigger. Note the lack of training wheels.

What's it all about?


On Thursday night, Chris, Elijah and I were coloring Easter eggs. (John would have joined us as well but he had passed out from a busy zoo day and no nap.) Chris decided to check to see what Elijah knew about the upcoming celebration of Easter. Here's a transcript of their conversation.


Chris: Elijah, is Easter about candy?

Elijah: (thinks for a moment, he does love candy) No!


Chris: Is Easter about a bunny?

Elijah: (giggles) No!


Chris: What is Easter about then?

Elijah: uh....Jesus on the cross!


Yes, buddy no matter how hard the world tries to turn Easter into a consumer event it is all about Jesus and that cross.


ps...it was even better when the next morning on the way to run errands Elijah started quizzing Chris with the exact same questions.
