Funny Things Our 17yo says...

Jack & Kylie watching t.v.
Since we are horrible parents and poor service attendees, Kylie had to ask what people do at an Ash Wednesday service. After explaining the meaning and what happens, she seemed momentarily confused about receiving an ash cross on the forhead... Her face quickly brightened and she exclaimed, "oh, like Simba!" Yes, Kylie, the sign of repentance is very similar to being annointed by Rafiki.

Then tonight we were talking about prayers and Kylie said that she wouldn't know what to pray except, "Dear God, Thanks for the food. Amen." I told her that was close, but usually people do more. "They pray for more food?!"
