Cute Quotes

When Anna was younger, she saw a bean beetle and exclaimed,
“Look!  A ladybug that’s not ripe!”
The other day, Jessica and Leah heard Noah singing,
“Ho, ho, ho, hosanna! I got the joy of the world!”
One day Cassia had just finished changing Isaiah, and she told him, “What do you say?”
(she was trying to get him to say “thank-you”)   Instead, he replied, “BYE!”
One day in March it was nice enough to open some windows.  I caught Noah and Isaiah sitting (!) on half in the window sill, half in the window together in one of them, enjoying the fresh air.  Noah told me, “It smell like the fair, it smell like hawduh (sawdust).  : )  Daddy had cut some wood outside, so the sawdust smell must have reminded him of all the sawdust they put down in the animal pens at the fair : )
