I asked the children to tell about how God created everything. (I call them into the room separately for this, or they tend to parrot one another.) Both girls gave brief narrations today. I never know if they will be short and to the point or long and rambly.
Kairas Narration (Age 6):
“In the beginning God made light. On day two, God made two waters, one above and one below. And day three God created land and trees and all the plants. Day four God created the Sun, the moon and the stars. Day five God created fish and birds. Day six God created people and all the other animals. He created them out of nothing. He told it to happen and then it did. But man He created out of the dust of the ground.”
Kendras Naration (Age 4):
“In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth, Genesis 1:1. He told it to be light, and there was light. He made the sky and the sun and people. He made people from the ground. Animals he just made–big ones and little ones. He made the Sea. After He made everything He rested, but not because He was tired, but because He worked a lot.”
