We are trying to teach our girls to be well-rounded.
This photo is one proof that we are succeeding.
Sophia is a fashionista who plopped down to read in the field
as soon as soccer was over last week.
Another proof happened last Saturday.
Here was the conversation between LG and I:
LG: "The girls don't want to eat their lunch until this round is over."
Me: "This round?"
LG: "Yeah, didn't you know that they watch WWF every Saturday."
And then Sunday after church,
here was the conversation between the girls and I.
Me: "O.k. girls, let's do something else besides watch T.V. today."
Abigail, "Well, what about the opera?"
(They have been watching the opera every Sunday.)
Me: "O.k. you can watch T.V. if it's the opera,
or we will help you pick a Sunday appropriate movie."
Sophia replied with, "I'm not in the mood for the opera."
Abigail screamed, "Can we watch Harry Potter?"
I've told them that they can watch any movie on Sunday
as long as they can tell me how that movie
helps them think about God or Jesus Christ.
hmmmmm...I wonder what Abigail's answer
to the frequently repeated question would have been:
"What does Harry Potter teach you about God or Jesus Christ?"
I am sure she would have come up with something.
Our girls are well-rounded like that.
They have keen understanding.
It's all because of the WWF and the Opera;
And the soccer and the reading.
