Kid Funnies

Our normal ride to and from church is a constant listening to Patch the Pirate. While I enjoy the values being taught by the music, sometimes I wonder if we are missing out on conversation opportunities by constantly having the music on. Yesterday Natalie requested no music. I am glad. We had some excellent conversation, but some funnies too.

Natalie was singing Zacheus. In case you have never heard the song, here are the words:

Zacheus was a wee little man
and a wee little man was he.
He climbed up in a sycamore tree
for the Lord he wanted to see
And as the Savior passed that way
He looked up in the tree
and He said, Zacheus, you come down
For I'm goin' to your house today.
For I'm goin' to your house today.

After singing the entire song several times and telling us the entire story, Natalie said, "But mommy, why is it a sycamore tree? Because the tree isn't sick, and it can't hold more people?"

A few seconds later, Megan pointed out the window.

"Ball, ball, ball."

We looked, and there, towering above the sky was a beautiful full (or nearly so) moon. Yes baby, a great, big, beautiful ball in the sky.
