Conversations With My Students

My poor little darlins… their brains are just fried from end-of-school craziness.  We were talking today about how our Kindergarten and 1st/2nd grade classes are almost full for next Fall, but there are only a handful of kids in 8th-10th grades.  Bless ’em:

Me: Well, y’all need to pray that the Lord sends us some families with older kids who’ve been classically educated so y’all can have some more classmates.

Boy: They have to be guys.  And they have to be athletic, so we can play basketball!

Girl 1:  And they have to be cute!  We’ll pray for cute guys.

Me (rolling my eyes): Yeah.  Why don’t you go ahead and pray that a couple families will move here and enroll at CCA with upper-school-aged boys who’ve been classically educated and are athletic and cute… and why don’t you throw in that they have Australian accents too?

Girl 2 (fists in the air): YEAH!!

Me (as their parents): Honey, I appreciate your newfound interest in prayer, but you’ve been kneeling there since you got home from school and it’s time for dinner.
