(I did it. I finally caved and bought class pictures this year. From now on, my kids can NEVER say that they're the ONLY ONES (cry me a river) who don't buy class pictures! As much as I think it's a rip-off, what they charge for pictures, it was pretty cute to see these kids' mugs...this year.)
We took a little road trip getting to the boys' football game last night. Driving through some areas out in the country (way out), the kids noticed the housing looked a bit dilapidated. Innocently, Lincoln said, "Wow, there must be a lot of poor people out here."
Quick to steer that comment down a positive road I said,
"Some of the greatest people in the world didn't have money."
"Like who?" he asked.
"Well, Jesus didn't have a lot of money."
"Yeah, Jesus only had, like, three quarters..."
I'm glad he's in-the-know with the Lord and His finances.
And, I'm grateful for unplanned moments that come as an open invitation to teach my kids. Life lessons on-the-go. They add up. I just know it.
