A Story

The Cactus
by Caleb Freeman

Once upon a time, there was a little cactus that was really healthy, but there was no water.  The next day, it looked like a baby cactus.  And then, it grew all day.  Then somebody found it and they watered it.  And then the next day, the cactus started to look like a real cactus, but it wasn't.  It was a half-sized cactus.  And then it was growing, growing, growing, growing all day.  And then the next day it was a real cactus.  The end.

Further editing and hand drawn pictures to come.  Stay tuned...

Quote of the Day

Conversation with Caleb during lunch today:

Me:  "Caleb, what do you think God made you special to do?"

Caleb:  "To love babies."

Me:  "To love babies?"

Caleb:  "Well, to love people.  Except the bad guys.  Mommy, if a bad guy comes into our house, I will hit him and knock him down.  I will jump on his tummy and jump on his eyes."

I feel safer already.  Thanks, Buddy.
