Are You There God? It's Me, Zachary.

Today we had our parent/teacher conference at Zack's preschool. During the meeting (which went really well, yay Zack!), they told us that they could write a book on all the funny things that he says.

They gave an example.

There was a program before Christmas called "Lunch With Father", where the kids came to school early, brought their lunch, and ate their lunch with Father Gordon while he told Bible stories and the like. Zack was very impressed the first time, as he got to ring the bell in the bell tower. However, he was a little confused about who exactly Father Gordon IS.

The last session, we showed up but Father Gordon wasn't there -- the preschool director told me that he was sick, but she was taking the kids and filling in.

Apparently, Zack went to class that afternoon and in his very cute, exasperated, overly-emotic-hands-thrown-out-wide-to-express-how-IMPORTANT-this-is, announced, "God didn't come to church today!"

The teachers were completely caught off guard, and said, "Oh! Well, what do you think happened to him?"

Zack just shook his head. "He must have called in sick."

I love my little boy.
