Kids say the darndest things...

Every Friday I mentor a little 7 year old kid as a part of the Kids Hope program and we were taling about what he'd done that week, and I was asking him about ANZAC day, and how much he knew etc, which he proudly told me it was about the brave soldiers going off to war.

He then proceeded to tell me his great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great (he seriously counted off 19 greats on his fingers) grandfather was in the war. I can't remember exactly which wars Australian soldiers were in 380 years ago, but I'm glad he's proud of his grandfatehr that was in it!!

He was also telling me about this play that was coming to school, i asked how long it went for and he just said 'until the wolf gets caught'. I think the concept of time is something he's still developing! Great stuff.

Also on monday I had the lying kid I mentioned earlier telling me about all this crazy stuff that he did on his holidays, which I can't really mention here without incriminating him, but it was hilarious.
