Ready for his own Bible

Isaiah has been "reading" the big Bible today - one that has no pictures. He's finding words that he recognizes and figuring out how to say the chapter/verse combination.

He was especially thrilled to find that "he" was in the Bible! "Look, there's Isaiah! That's my name!"

I explained to him who Isaiah was in Biblical times and how he had been named from the Bible. He didn't quite get the difference between "Isaiah" in the Bible and the "Isaiah" that he is.

I think he may be ready for a book about Isaiah that he can actually read.

Going to be a shirt

I can't say 100% exactly how this conversation transpired because I wasn't there. Somehow, I'm sure some of it will be lost in translation...

Isaiah had to go to a babysitter on Monday morning because he is out on spring break and his mother didn't get him to the Y in time for him to go on the field trip for that morning. He told Jamie, his sitter, that Rex's name was "shirt" and he liked it - so he was going to be a shirt, too.

That's not quite what Rex's last name is. Close, but not quite.

Isaiah Shirt... has a nice ring, don't you think?

Grandma, I got a joke for you...

What's black and white with stripes next to it?

I don't know, what is it?

A zebra! Fooled you!!!

I got another joke for you.

What's great big, has big legs, big feet, and is huge.

An Elephant?


A dinosaur?

No, bigger than a dinosaur!

I can't think of anything else that's bigger than a dinosaur.

Fooled you! It's God!! I tricked you when I said big legs, didn't I?
