A Voice from....a fish?

Out of the mouths of babes...

Yesterday, during a Bible trivia game for our school's assembly, two of my little darlings had the opportunity to answer a question.  They had to fill in the blanks of a Bible verse (I don't remember which one), which talked about "a voice from ______" (Matthew 3:17?).  The first small one, on my team, said "God!", which was the wrong answer...but was a good guess.  The second small one, on the opposing team, answered by saying...wait for it..."a fish!"

I am very proud of myself.  I hid my hysterical laughter.

I am very proud of the rest of the students in the school.  They only giggled quietly.

I am very proud of the little student, who was trying so hard to participate and be a part of the assembly...even if her answer was "a fish!"

The answer, by the way, was "heaven."

So much of what we do as teachers is cheerleading . . . we encourage our students to take an active part in their own education. This means that we spend a lot of time fighting tears or laughter, or both.

Seriously, your kids give you amazing blog material. If only they knew, eh? Haha, you know, I'd kind of like to hear a fish voice.
