Today Luke decided to tell Susanna about Noah's ark...a story they both know quite well.
So God told Noah to build a big boat out of wood called an ark and put animals on it cuz he was gonna get rid of all the bad guys in a big flood. And they got on the boat and God made it rain lots and lots until it was flooded all over. And the boat was going until it cracked "craaaaack" and then it stopped but Noah got it going and it kept floating and raining until it landed on a mountain and cracked "craaaack" again. But the floods went away and the animals got out of the boat and the bad guys were all gone.
And on a completely different topic, well, except that it also involves animals, Tony and I walked to the farm with the kids tonight to see the baby calves (there are six right now). Being the realist that I am, I told the kids "look, in a few years, those will be dinner!" Oh, stop! We've talked about it before, and my kids are well aware where their hamburger, steaks, ham, bacon, chicken, and other meats come from. However, tonight, it finally sunk in to Susanna. Within a couple minutes, a quiet, worried little voice said, "But I don't want to eat the cows and baby calves for supper. I don't want them killeded." She repeated that a few times....we'll have to see how she reacts to the hamburgers I'm planning for supper tomorrow night!
