The sweetness of childhood

This morning we cleaned up the basement (again!! Do they EVER stay clean??)
Anyways, after that we did some school work, and we were listening for the letter 'P' at the beginning of words. If they heard a 'p' they would clap their hands. (zach liked this)

One of the words was 'pour'. When Elizabeth heard it, she looked very pensive for a little bit and then said "Mommy, the poor need our prayers, because they don't have enough money for food or clothes". It took me a second to realize that she thought I meant 'poor' instead of 'pour'.

I don't recall actually teaching her about this specifically.. Except for when we go grocery shopping and I always forget to pick out something for the foodbank so we have to look through our groceries for something to give them on the way out. (they have bins by the door). Kids are so pure and innocent aren't they?

Today there was more cute artwork.. You can go see it in my photo album, or on here down on the right a bit in my flikr badge of recent pictures... There's also a cute one of zach drawing on the little chalk board I picked up for him at a garage sale on the weekend.
