When I was a young whipper-snapper and our teacher wanted us to sit on the ground for something, we were always to told to sit "Indian-style".
Since it is not politically-correct to use that term I've tried to tell the boys to sit "cross-legged" but it doesn't roll off the tongue very well.
I sometimes wondered what they say in schools...but last night I found out.
When it was story time last night, the boys told Kristi to sit "criss-cross applesauce". How cute is that.
They also told her that during story time, they sit criss-cross applesauce and they keep their spoons in their bowls...(hands to themselves in their laps). Pretty neat, huh?
Matt also decided he wanted to sent me a package, so he got a box and raided the pantry with stuff he wanted to send me. A few of the items he felt I needed: powdered sugar, minced onion, mac-n-cheese, brown sugar.
The other day he found a big rock that he wanted to wrap up and send. He is a sweet boy, but one thing Afghanistan is not short of is rocks.
