Ellie and Owen were running in circles around the living room (yes, the smallest things do amuse around here). In true Ellie-fashion she began to sing her own songs. Soon she realized she was singing the Bible verse we had been working on this week as a family. (from a great book recommended by Mary)
Ellie: Mom! Mom! Listen: "A soft answer turns away wrath!"
Mom: Wow, Elle, you remembered our Bible verse! Good for you! Do you remember what it means?
Ellie: Yep, to be quiet!!
Close but no cigar, my dear.
Ah well, baby steps, eh?
