Last night was "Open House" for Karson's Pre-K class. We had so much fun getting to go to her room and see all of the neat things she's been doing. We met some of her new friends and looked at her work on the bulletin board. Because of the system they have for drop off/pick-up, I never get to see her room. I now have a better picture of where my baby is everyday! It looked like such a happy place, and Mrs. Kendall said that Karson was doing great! Needless to say, we were VERY proud of our big girl!
Miss Jennifer was so sweet to keep Campbell last night so that we could focus all attention on K and her big girl class. I must say that once Karson found out that Campbell was staying at Miss Jennifer's, we had to bribe her to go with us. She wasn't too excited about missing out on her time with one of her FAVORITE ladies! I digress...
On the way to the school, Rus and I were chatting with Karson about her day. It was a Thursday, so it was a "double school" day. We have named Tuesdays and Thursdays "double school" days because Karson goes with me to preschool in the mornings (she is in the 4 year old class) and then goes to her Pre-K class in the afternoons. It really is a PERFECT arrangement.
Anyway, as we were chatting about her day, we were also listening to Bob and Larry! The song "Whole World In His Hands" came on. When it got to the part that says, "He's got the wind and the rain in His hands", Karson shouts from the back seat, "I know that story!"...and the following conversation occured.
Rus - Yes, the one when Jesus' friends were scared of the storm, and Jesus made the rainstop.
Karson - No, Daddy, the one with the whale!
Me - Jonah and the whale?
Karson - Yes!
Me - (Ever the annoying teacher) Tell us about it.
Karson - Well, Jonah got swallowed by a whale. God sent it to save him.
Rus - Why?
Karson - Because he disobeyed.
Me - That's right, God told him to go to Niniva and he didn't go. (Then I quickly turned to Rus and said under my breath, "is that right?")
Karson - Mmm hmm, so God made a storm come and dump him out of his boat and then He sent the whale to save him.
Rus - So did the whale eat him?
Karson - No, he just swallowed him up. And Jonah stayed in the whale's tummy and it was VERY smelly in there.
Me - Did the whale finally spit him out?
Karson - Yep, and then Jonah was covered in WHALE SLOBBER!
You called it Miss Shelbi (Karson's Bible Story teacher). You knew that was the part that they would remember. I love it!!!
