Today JD Boy wouldn’t stop: "Mommy, mommy, please video us." He is one of if not the most persistent child I’ve ever met. I was so busy and didn’t really have time, but if you’ve read the parable about the unjust judge in the Bible then you already know that persistence pays off. Finally, I said, "Okay, where do I have to go to video you?" Well it was only a few feet away and it didn’t require putting on my coat and shoes, so I agreed. I got my camera, headed to the bottom of the stairs and then the kids began their presentation. Here it is.
Now, we didn’t study Christopher Columbus this week or month, we studied it in September. Obviously though JD Boy took a liking to the story and he persuaded his siblings to participate in his imaginary sailing across the Atlantic. He even invited Captain Jones on the journey. Pretty amazing huh? It seems the water must have been a bit rough and required bicycle helmets. Wouldn’t Columbus have loved those? And you’ll notice, that, unfortunately, the captain of the Pinta freaked out and wasn’t able to make the voyage.
