Nature Calls


The boys found this little critter in the yard a few days ago. None of us had seen a praying mantis up close before, so she was quite the spectacle. Elijah came running in the house saying, "there's a praying mantis in the yard." I really thought I was going out to see a large grasshopper, but sure enough, it was a praying mantis. Ahhh the things we learn from Kung Fu Panda.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
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.
