In the meantime, I'm already starting to get some resistance from Devon. When he saw on the schedule that we were going to do bible study at the end of the every day, he started to lock up. He tells me he hates the religion. I tell him it really doesn't matter whether he likes it or not because we're going to study it just like we're going to study Buddhism, Judaism, Hinduism, and all of the other major religions of the world. He was decidedly not happy about it. We're reading the bible this year along with the Dhammapada. I'm excited because while I'm not a religious person by any means, I've always wanted to read the bible....to really see more of what's in it besides just the stuff that everyone talks about in casual conversation.
On another subject, we've had a household vote on the "official" school name, mascot, and colors. And the winners are:
(drum roll please!)
School Name: Starfleet Academy for Earthlings
School Mascot: Spock
School Colors: Rainbow
I get to be the Starfleet Commander. Best. Job. Ever.
|I put this on the white board for the boys to see tomorrow when I'm at work. :-)|
