Tales from the Playground

With Daniel recuperating, Emily Hannah and I have stayed close to home. I tend to get a little cabin fever so we have utilized short errands and trips to the playground across the street to chase away the monotony. Here are some interesting conversations that took place today.

The playground is a wooden Rainbow system painted reddish brown and there are red/yellow/blue canopies over top. As I sat on the bench watching, Hannah called out to me from the inner chambers:
"Hey, Mommy! I'm in the ark!"
Me: "I see you, Noah!"
Hannah: "It's starting to rain."
Me: waiting
Hannah: Smiles sweetly, "You're going to die!"

The play equipment has seen better days and can be a little buggy. Emily got entangled in her first spider web today. We all know that feeling. She simply clinched her fists and with a look of terror, screamed,

"MOMMY! I got DEAD on me!"
Don't know if she misunderstood the pronounciation of the word web or if we have finally convinced her of the dangers of spiders but she was done.
"I'm ready to go home and eat a popsicle."

Just so you know...this morning in Sunday School we were talking about how the evil king took Jeremiah's scrolls that God told him write and how the king tore the scrolls and burned them in the fire. Hannah said, "Somebody has to kill him!"
