me:  so a fable is a story written to teach us a lesson - does anyone have any examples of fables

2nd graders:  the gingerbread man; tortoise and the hare; little boy who cried wolf

me:  ok - so in the gingerbread man - the gingerbread man was naughty and ended up getting eaten by a fox

2nd grade boy: so what you're saying is - if i'm naughty i'm going to be eaten by a fox?!  i'd rather just get spanked!!!

happy thanksgiving - may your saucer be full

"so then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him.  rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, overflowing with thankfulness."
colossians 2:6-7
