Dirt, Worms, and Skyler!

My "Sky Sky" is ALL boy. Give him some dirt and a stick and he will have fun for hours. He loves to be outside. Today he went on one of his many adventures. He decided to go bug hunting. Sky ended up with 5 worms and 9 Rollie polie's! He made them a special mud house with grass, rocks, mud, sticks..the works. Then he decided they were dirty and needed to give them a bath...


He sweetly talked to the worm to inform it is was about to be dropped in the bucket of water for a bath!! He kept asking me if the worm was going to be okay in the water.

Bath time...

Was very happy the worm was all clean!

After he finished giving the worm a bath he kept asking a lot of questions. It is amazing what runs through your children's minds. He asked again if the worm was going to be okay after the bath. Then his big brown eyes looked up at me and said "Mommy, I am going to heaben someday." I could have just cried right then and there! I began to talk to him about heaven. He was full of questions. "Who is going to be there? Are you? Is daddy? Is sissy? God wants us to use every opportunity...like bathing a worm...to teach our children.

"Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. " Deuteronomy 11:19
