Dead fish

So Than took Garrick fishing this morning and when they came back Than relayed this conversation he had with Garrick to me. Garrick had found a dead fish floating in the water, and was poking it with a stick. Here goes;

Than - It's dead Garrick
Garrick - Let's heal it
Than - How are you supposed to heal death?
Garrick - By the power of the priesthood! Duh!
After my initial chuckle, it almost brought a tear to my eye! At the age of 5 1/2 he knows that "by the power of the priesthood" miracles happen. That a fish could be brought back to life. My little boy is growing up so fast!

Last week Aleksia relayed the story of Daniel and the Lion's den perfectly (in a 3 year old's version of course). I was truly amazed! She must be paying attention in primary! But in a way it makes me sad, because I want to be the one they learn the scripture stories from. Any of you have any good, fun, tried and true ways of doing such? I'd welcome any input!!!

TOOOOO cute!! You can always count on Garrick to say something like that!!! What a sweet smart boy. I love that some of the things these kids learn sink in (sometimes!!)
