our kids’ quotes

Faithful was our Word of the Week on Sunday.  When asked what the word faithful means…

“It means you have two mommies and two daddies.” – Kendall, age 4

“Faithful is when you do something wrong and you get a spanken.”  – Lily, age 5

“Faithful is love.”  – William, age 4

“It’s like when you have a dog and he runs away and you can’t find him, but then you find him after you drive around for a long time cause that’s what dogs do all the time.” – Viola, age 4
