Family Q&A

Every once in awhile at dinner time, Kyle or I will call out: "Ok guys, it's Q&A time! If you have a question, we have an answer." I said it last night when we were all finishing up our Shepherd Pie (yum!) and then I just looked around expectantly at the kids.
Isaac said: Why don't you ask us a question.
Okey dokey. So I started with Chloe: What is your absolute favorite thing to do?
(That was insightful and I told her so. (Then I explained what insightful means.) She's always singing, but frankly I never realized the depth of her passion for it.)

Elena's answer didn't surprise me. In fact, it was so unsurprising, I don't remember it. No clue what I asked her. (how embarrassing)

Isaac: What is your favorite part of having your cousins here all week?
-playing basketball with Max
(I've been reading a book about raising boys and it taught me not to expect a boy younger than 13 to speak or think in anything less than concrete terms, so I wasn't disappointed in his brief answer. Last week, I would've been.)

Kyle asked Daniel and Lydia what their favorite movie was. They both answered something they'd seen within the last 48 hours. Go figure.

Maya: If you could have anything you wanted, no matter how much it costs, what would you want?
She thought about it briefly and then said: I'd go see Jesus. Even if it meant I'd have to die, that's what I want.

If there were no other "good reason" for Christians to adopt children (specifically children who may not get to hear the gospel otherwise), Maya's answer would be enough.

Her answer made me cry.
