Jesus on the Cross

This morning at breakfast Hannah was explaining to Ivan that "sin is disobeying God" and "Jesus died on the cross to take away all our sin." It reminded me that I had meant to blog about something a few weeks ago and forgot. We all went to Tillamook a few weeks ago and we were looking around Rosenberg Building Supply when the kiddos spotted a kids "patio set". A table with umbrella and chairs. The table had a tic-tac-toe grid on it and it wasn't long before Hannah and Ivan discovered x 's and o's in the pockets on the chairs. Only they found the x's first, turned them on their sides and showed anyone who would look at the them..."Look it's Jesus on a cross." They got a few blank looks until I explained that they'd been paying close attention in Sunday school. So their alphabet skills may be slightly lacking at this moment but I'm not complaining.

That is the coolest. On both counts. I hate how often I forget that they get this stuff much earlier in life than we think possible. I mean, I was less than five for goodness sakes!
