We are at Camp!

I think the best week of Seth's life last year was at church camp.  Well we are back again and there is an extra bounce in his step and gleam in his eyes.

One of the parts that is so fun to me is to watch him set up his home away from home.  He loves to claim his territory in our cabin.  This year our cabin has bunk beds and a double bed.  He immediately claimed the bottom bunk and spread out his Bass Pro Shop sleeping bag.  However a few minutes later he informed me that the top bunk would be his nap bed.  Funny how a boy who rarely naps would scope out a nap bed.

I'll run faster than.....

Seth and I are attending church camp this week.  This morning as we were walking to the pavilion for our church group's meeting and quiet time.  On the way Seth said, "Mom, if I see a snake I'm going to run faster than a statue."

Do I grin and let it go or begin a long discussion on statues?

I went for it and mentioned to Seth that statues don't run.  Silly me was not thinking about the fact that in the latest TMNT movie (that's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie for those who don't know the lingo) that statues come to life and do run around.

Seth replied, "But if they cracked open and did, I would run faster!"

Long nap or short nap?

Today Seth asked me if God takes shorter naps than we do?

I told him that I don't think God takes naps which somehow made Seth wonder if the chair is heaven are more comfortable.

Don't know where in the world this is coming from.....just glad he is thinking and wondering about God.

What do you like about God?

Last week when i was driving Seth to school he asked me, "Mom, do you know what I like about God?"

"No" I replied.

"That He heals people" and after a pause added, "and He helps us"

"And why does he do that?"

"Because He loves us" heart almost burst open because it was so full of joy.

Famous last words....

Seth's first words every morning: Chocolate Milk (said in a groggy voice)
Seth's last words every day: Chocolate Milk


Don't you just love the things kids say sometimes. My Seth is always bringing a smile to my face. I have a friend that I usually call to share this things with. It recently hit me that I couldn't remember all the stories when a lady I had told one asked me to tell one to her friend. So I am going to try to journal more of them along the way.

I realize that some might be "you had to be there" stories. Nonetheless I will use this space to keep them for me.

Seth: Mom, did we pass McDonalds?
Me: No
Seth: Are we taking a short cut or a long cut?
