benaiah vs. david

I have been informed quite a few times that my blog is a little lopsided -more pictures of Calvin, less of Maggie and more stories about Maggie, less of Calvin. I have thought about this quite a bit, and this is my conclusion…it is true, and I don’t know why. Maybe I’m trying to stop the unstoppable truth that the first child has more pictures than the subsequent children. (By the way, I’m not even close with Calvin – I think I photographed each hour of Maggie’s first year and a half.) Maybe I am just currently enthralled by Calvin’s white halo of hair…it’s the only angelic thing about him. I don’t really know, but here’s another story about Maggie to push the blog even further out of balance.

Here is a (sort of) recent piece of Maggie’s Sunday School “art”… it is appropriately titled “Benaiah Dot-to-Dot”. Apparently the green and orange crayons were available that day. (For those of you not up on your flannelgraphs, Benaiah was David’s “mighty man”.)

When I asked Maggie what the things were on either side of Benaiah, she told me they were his weapons. I asked her what kind of weapons, and she told me – spears. Then she told me that David “did fighting” also, but he used different weapons than Benaiah. When I asked what his weapons were, her answer was “oh, he used golf clubs”.

I’m really not sure what to say about that.

    Just for the record, I love this post. I think it is hilarious. And I promise not to pick apart your blog like that. I’m pretty sure I’m just always so busy being excited to see that you’ve posted something cool/cute, that I don’t analyze anything. I just laugh or melt.
