Every now and then, Eliza springs a Big Question on me. Tonight before bed, she asked, “Why does God make bad guys?”
I said, “I don’t think God makes bad guys–only good guys. Sometimes one of God’s good guys makes so many bad choices that he turns into a bad guy.”
“Oh,” she said. [Long pause.] “Sometimes bad guys have raccoons as pets.”
I just love her inquisitive nature! And Jed is the same way, although he’s a little harder to understand.
Many thanks to JJ, who came to stay with the kids so that Jimmy and I could have some time to ourselves. It felt so luxurious–just the two of us! And the kids are still talking about how much fun they had with JJ. Thanks so much for making the trip! We love you!
The kids got to splash in puddles today! It hasn’t rained here in like two months, so it’s kind of a big deal!
I’ve gotta hand it to these two–we had so many many errands today, and they were such troopers! Hardly a cross word, even though we skipped nap time. Eliza even rocked ballet afterwards!
