A little trip to the principal's office...

So, last week my son made a poor choice while on the playground that rightly resulted in him losing recess for a couple of days. Today was the last day of that punishment, and while missing recess, he had to sit in the principal's office.

So he decided to write a paper. Here is exactly what he wrote:

"Whats the purpois of this class? To play? No! To Succed? No!
It is to play and learn.
God wants us not to learn without break! Or play without learn! He wants both!
More then that, he wants us to prise him!
But we cant do any of them without God in our hearts! "

He was so proud and excited to show me that he had come up with all of that on his own. ("I did have to ask how to spell a couple of words though.")

Simple, and yet profound. It's amazing what we can find in our hearts when nothing is there to distract us!

I had to read it more than once to take in the depth of what Eli wrote. I am so impressed and amazed. I love reading about his heart and depth.

Eli is amazing!!! I am blown away again and again by his depth. He is so right, and he most definitely has God in his heart. Where else could such wisdom come from? You and Jason are doing such an awesome job training him up in Christ. I am so amazed at who he is right now, and I cannot wait to see who God molds him into in the future. Love ya!

Heather, I just wanted to say thank you to you guys for taking the time to talk to Chris. Your words were encouraging and challanging. It is also comforting to know that we always have someone to call.

Thanks again, Jessica
