We're playing outside. I'm cleaning out a flower bed. Elijah is climbing the tree.

Elijah: Mommy, What if I could see what the monkeys are doing in South America?
Me: That would be pretty amazing.
Elijah: (Peering off into the distance like he's really trying to see South America) What if I could hear them too? I bet they're saying "ooo ah ah ah" right now.
Me: I bet you're right.

Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
