Callie has always had a way with words. Sometimes a way that has gotten her in big trouble. :) Many times a way that has us laughing until we are crying!
As she has gotten older, the super funny things don't happen as often. Recently, though, she's been on a roll.
We had watched a DVD about the Chinese Terra Cotta Warriors. A few days later I was commenting on how amazing it was to me that these were built in China before the time of Christ. I think it was something like 350 BC. She said that it was interesting but didn't understand why I thought it was "so amazing."
Now I'm sure there is a lot that I don't remember that some teacher actually taught me, but I do not remember ever learning about ancient history. I was taught the Bible at home and at church, but It was not until I was an adult that I realized the order of things was not Old Testament, New Testament and then everything else. So now that I know, I love to see and learn about things, like the Terra Cotta Warriors, that were happening at the same time as things in the Bible.
So anyway, I said...."Callie I didn't really learn history like you are" and I was getting ready to tell her all the rest of that, but before I could, she said..."That's because your teachers didn't even come close to your mind blowing awesomeness!"
I kid you not! That's exactly what she said. I almost ran off the road laughing. I told her to remember that when it was time for math the next day.
About a week later, she hit her head pretty hard on the car door while getting in. She said, "I'm afraid I'm going to have a colon." I asked her what she said and she said it again. I asked her what in the world she was talking about. She said, "like when you can't wake up". Luckily, Cameron was driving this time!! I told her it was "coma not colon" and then we had a little anatomy lesson.
