To coin a phrase

We’re in the car on the way home from my sister’s, listening to songs from the Children’s Songbook. A song comes on that teaches the books of the Old Testament. I know a faster-paced, catchier version, so I sing it for the kids. Mabel says,

“Is the Old Testament the Bible?”

“Yes.”

“I thought the New Testament was the Bible.”

“They both are. The Old Testament and the New Testament together make the Bible.”

“OH! Now it all makes sense! Helen Keller at the water fountain!”

“What did you say?”

“That’s what I say when I figure something out–Helen Keller at the water fountain!”

“Where did you get that from?”

“Nowhere. I made it up.”

Helen Keller at the water fountain!

(Dean pointed out that it was actually a water pump, not a fountain.)


Happy ski bunny (shortly before she fell down and injured her teeth).
