Things That Make Me Laugh

Yesterday:
Tyler went with Doug to help build the set for our church's Christmas production. He was so excited to be big enough to help. Doug told me later the man in charge asked Ty to show him his hands and declared them "working hands." Tyler said, "Yeah, I've got country feet. I can run on gravel."

Today:

For penmanship Becca was supposed to be writing the names of her favorite songs. "S" was the letter of the day.
"Helling Ran" anyone?
Tyler was working on spelling and was having trouble with woman and women. I tried to explain. "You can spell man, right? You can spell men, right?" He nodded affirmatively. Woman/ women is just like those words but with "wo" on the beginning." I love when I can see understanding dawn on their face. And then I derailed. "It's because God created woman from the man's side." The look on his face was priceless. "But,...aren't they just born now?"

I told the girls that woman was named as such because, after God made Eve, Adam took one look and said, "Whoa, man!" And the name stuck!

They giggle every time.

Even though I was born and raised on a dairy farm here in Wisconsin, I never did get those "country feet"

I just can't do it.
