Theology from a 6 year old
Our 6 year old, Henry, is learning from the Baltimore Catechism. Right now our goal is with memorization of the lessons-and will continually work on understanding as he grows. Many of the lessons he really understands quite a bit. Even without guidance, he has gleaned the knowledge from our domestic church. However, every once in a while, we get a peek into how his brain is working, putting together his own connections--
For example, we always refer to children as gifts from God. From this Henry made these connections:
Jesus sends boy babies
Mary sends girl babies
God has a "pouch" of babies from which he sends us new children
