A Nathan Story

I am a firm believer that kids say some of the funniest things. One evening while talking with Julie, she shared the following story with me and I thought it was too funny not to share.

Julie and my brother's Russell and Nathan were sitting around one evening talking about Lent (Note- we aren't Catholic). She asked each of the boys what they wanted to give up for Lent.

Julie decided to give up pop.

Russell decided he wanted to give up one of his favorite toys.

And Nathan, well he thought long and hard. He finally decided that the biggest sacrifice he could make would be to give up school, he was very serious when he said it too.

Julie had to be the bearer of bad news and tell him that by giving up school he would be held back a year.
