Austin: We didn't have it?
Me: Why not? (Honestly, we have be practicing for two weeks!)
Austin: Cocoa died, and all the girls were crying so we couldn't have the Spelling Bee. Why do girls cry so much? (Cocoa was their class pet - a guinea pig.)
Me: That's just what girls do, especially when something dies. Were you sad?
Austin: A little, but we wrote letters to Cocoa.
Macy: It's okay, Austin, don't be sad. Jesus just has to recognize him and then he'll come back alive.
Austin: (Always quick to correct his sister) Mace, I think you mean "resurrect." Yeah. Maybe in three days.
Me: (Laughing) Well, Christ was resurrected after three days, but I think it will take a little longer for Cocoa. (They are sort of getting it, right?!?)
