David and Goliath

So Kyle'e teacher stopped me yesterday afternoon while I was at school to get the kiddos. She told me that she just had to tell me this story (even though she wrote it down for me as well). Yesterday his class started learning the letter "r". Kyle's teacher was using examples of words starting with "r" such as rock. She then went on to say that all the kids know they are not to throw rocks. Kyle looks right at his teacher and says, we cannot throw rocks but David can. She told me it took a minute for her to realize what Kyle was referring to but when she did she was just amazed that Kyle not only remembered the story of David and Goliath but that he was able to make that leap in reasoning. I am just so proud of him. Learning his bible stories, remembering them and just how smart he is. Sometimes it creeps me out a little then I remember how smart his GG Daddy and Auntie Paige are.

You forgot to include his Aunt JJ with GG Daddy and Aunty Paige!

That is amazing. But I keep telling you and Kevin how smart that kid is. He does remind me of his Auntie when she was that age. She seemed to just absorb information and could carry on adult conversations long before my friends were ready to be engaged! I too am proud of him. Keep up the good work and keep him in schools that will challenge him. Otherwise he will be BORED.

That's my Godson!! He and his baby brother are just smart as whips...the fact they are beautiful and sweet, too, is just an added blessing.

Kate loves that story. She always repeats the part (from our book) "David was SO small, and Goliath was SO big!"
