Never Cry Wolf

When we were taking our walk yesterday, Ethan was happily chatting along.
Ethan: Mommy, do you know what my favorite Bible story is?
Me: No, honey, what's your favorite Bible story?
Ethan: The one about the boy who took care of the sheep.
Me: Oh, David?
Ethan: no.
Me: the shepherds in the field who heard about Jesus?
Ethan:no! T he one with the wolf.
Me: huh? Which story with a wolf?
Ethan: You know, the little shepherd boy got bored so he said there was a wolf and everyone came running, but he was kidding. And then he did it again and said "wolf, wolf" but there was really no wolf and he laughed. Then there really was a wolf after that, but when he called "wolf, wolf" no one came to help him so the wolf gobbled him up. That story. It's my favorite Bible story.

Another thing I forgot to add:
Yesterday a friend asked Trevor how old he was. He answered "purple." My kids are so smart! ;-)

Little kids say the darndest things, don't they? So funny! My other friend Robin's son claims his favorite activity is "choo-choo tracks" along with his favorite color "choo-choo tracks" and his age which is, of course, "choo-choo tracks." Kids. Are. So. Cute.
