Ben: Caleb, did you meet any new friends at Vacation Bible School?
Me: Did you sit by anyone new, or play with anyone new?
Caleb: Well, no one really looked very cool.
WHAT!!??? (this is what I was thinking to myself)
Ben: What do you mean?
Caleb: Well, no one looked very cool.
Ben: How do you know if someone looks cool?
Caleb: Well, their clothes weren't cool looking.
And there it is.
Followed by much discussion, and a hopeful "let's try to be friends with EVERYONE tomorrow!" pep talk. But yeah, we aren't quite sure where that all came from, but it was a good reminder. For all of us. And it was a good time for Ben and I to giggle, to examine our own hearts and attitudes, and to remember that these kids belong to the good God who created them, and He has good plans for them, and He is working His purposes in His timing, and yeah, there is always room for correction. =)
