because of course god went to school

Quick background: My kids are in a gifted program called EXCEL, which they can attend as a pull-out class (once a week) or full-time. Second graders are only offered the part-time version; my daughter has been mulling over whether she wants the full-time class next year. We have encouraged her to go that direction but will ultimately let her decide.

As we were driving home this afternoon, Paige was struck with a revelation. In an excited AHA! voice she announced, "I bet when God was a kid, he was in the full-time EXCEL. Because he figured out how to make all the animals and people and plants and everything." That was all. But it was good.
