Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."
Ask Micah what his favorite verse is and he'll start reciting this. I think it's just because this was the first verse he learned. Or maybe it's because he learned this verse before Grady Lee and he likes bragging rights.
And the best part? When a museum volunteer asked my boys which animal was their favorite, Grady Lee replied with, "They are all my favorites because God created all of them and he called everything good!"
After spending an hour in The Naturalist Center, I convinced the boys to leave and explore the rest of the museum. There were children's exhibits to play on, puzzles to do, balls to roll, water to splash, buttons to push, and levers to pull.
By 1:30 I was tired and ready to go. The boys, however, weren't.
I hope the museum staff and volunteers took it as a compliment to their great exhibits while they listened to my boys cry and wail that they didn't want to go. I can assure you, we did not leave quietly.
