“Thank you, God.”

At breakfast time recently, I held hands with the girls so we could pray. At the end they said “amen” with me. Then they said “pray, pray, pray.” I asked if they wanted to pray and told them they could say “thank you God.” This is not an uncommon exchange and it usually ends either there or after I say another short prayer. But this day was different. This day Elizabeth repeated, “thank you, God.” These days the girls repeat everything they hear, however I think Elizabeth does have some rudimentary concept of thank you — she does say it at appropriate times at any rate. God is a much harder concept. There is much for her to learn still, but this was a great step in the right direction.

And now moving on to some of my favorite August pictures…

Just... need... to move it... here.

Hi!

Mmm... strawberries.

Does she have a great smile, or what?
