Living room safari

Its amazing what the boys come up with to entertain themselves while we move in. VBS at our church has been a huge blessing this week since the boys have quickly made some new friends and the VBS theme of an African safari has made for some awesome play ideas. Today they built a hippo, elephant and cheetah in our living room out of blankets, sheets, VBS crafts and newspaper, and brought the VBS CD out for background music. They played out about 10 different story lines all morning and made up their own tribal language. I'd say their adjusting well!

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.
