I promised a few good stories from the VBS (Vacation Bible School) we participated in last week.
In case you don't have a five-year old boy in your house, or it's been a while since yours was my son's age... I might need to offer some sort of warning about the subject matter of this post.
In case you have a five-year old boy in your house, or the memories stay fresh even years later... you probably won't even blink an eye.
We were driving home midweek from another fun day of games, crafts, activities and Bible stories, and I asked Drew how his class went.
"Great!" he said. "Although, I think I did have a lot of gas today in my tummy."
"Because I certainly was farting a lot."
"Oh, Drew.... that is not good at all. It's a very rude thing to do!!!"
"Oh, I'm sorry."
"Mommy... what does RUDE mean?"
"It means to not be polite. When you're polite, it makes the people around you happy."
"Oh, well then, Mommy, I was being polite because it made LOTS of people happy!!!"
"I was not referring to the other five-year old boys, son."
Needless to say, I dropped my son off the next day with a more humble demeanor and a quiet "thank you" for what the teachers of the Kindergarten class go through for three hours each day.
