Our kids seem to have a gift with words even when they don't intend to be funny. Here are a few snippets from recent conversations.
Paul: "It would have been so cool if George Washington's wife was named Curious. Because her official name would have Curious George Washington."
Hannah: "I once sent a letter to Heaven inside a helium balloon."
Micah: "Well Heaven didn't get it. It probably got found by some dirty old bum."
Noah (after we passed a HUGE metal pipe being hauled by a tractor trailer): I think that was a large electric generator. Or a spaceship component. Or a giant missile of some sort. Thankfully it's pointed away from our house."
Paul: "I need 40 signatures to officially run for office in class council."
Noah: "What are you running for?"
Noah: "No... WHY are you running? I'M not even voting for you."
Ashton: "I really like the mirror you hung in my room. I wanted one so I could practice my dance moves. And don't take this the wrong way, but the mirror is so small that I can't see much. Like... I can tell if one leg is moving in rhythm."
