Every Monday I write our memory verse for the week on the board in the school room. Max had decided he did not want to do school that day, so he was in his room playing Bob the Builder. As Briggs and I began the read the verse, "An excellent.." Max shouted from his room "who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. Proverbs 31:10." We had no idea that he knew it. Apparently, they went over it at church the day before. He had completely memorized it in one day. He really does have some awesome memorizing skills.
Speaking of homeschooling, one day I was trying to encourage him to do a worksheet. He looked at me dead seriously and said, "My name is not Max. My name is Ninja Boy and ninjas.don't.do.worksheets."
He also has informed me that "pockets are way better than purses." I guess that was just FYI for us girls.
While looking for his sippy cup, I told him that I found it and he replied, "No, that's not it. That one is from tomorrow."
Once as I was cleaning off his muddy feet, I asked him if he had been playing outside barefoot. He asked, "bear feet? I have bear feet?" After I explained what barefoot meant, he said, " Oh, yeah, I have a bear foot. A bear came out of the woods and gave me a bear foot." I decided to forgo further explanation and just said, "You are so cute." Of course he replied, "No I'm not!"
Yesterday, while waiting for Rod to meet us for lunch, Max was playing with a toy and Briggs asked if he could see it. Max said no and I asked him if he would like to share just for a few minutes. He replied, "no" so I told him that I would pray for him, that God would change his heart and make him want to share. I quietly prayed and a few seconds later he said," Well Mom, He didn't." Oh boy:)
