The other night Collin and I were eating dinner. His palette amazes me. For a six-year-old he eats quite a bit. I'd made chicken stir fry with chicken, broccoli, broccoli slaw, pea pods, etc. Collin was spearing his broccoli saying "broccoli crucified"... guess that's his Christian schooling showing there. I got to thinking about vocabulary, context and word knowledge. He's approximating -- all of the things he's learning about Jesus and Easter --trying to apply them to new contexts, but still.... crucified vegetables... hmm, I wanted to laugh, but I didn't dare. He did clean his plate.
