Earlier this year, we bought a folding camp trailer. It looks like this:

As soon as we got it home, we set it up to show our kids. They loved it and got very excited about camping. Then Caleb, who was three years old at the time, said (and this is an exact quote), “We can hide in there when Jesus pops out of the cloud!” I won’t even try to list everything that’s wrong with this plan. I just want the record to show that we’ve always tried to teach our kids correct gospel doctrine. We’ll keep working with Caleb. This is the same kid who once described Jesus as “the most powerful superhero ever.” I guess he’s right in a way.
Here’s the whole gang camping last year with a tent, which provided much less protection from End of Days calamities and divine judgment.
This is Caleb dressed in a superhero disguise of his own design. He loves to be super and has defeated countless imaginary evil geniuses.
We've been talking about what will happen when he starts kindergarten next year. Celeste already has a monologue prepared for his teacher, and it starts with, "You're going to hear a lot of things..."
