From the backseat today

Me: “Hey you guys - look over there at the mountains. Aren’t they beautiful with all the snow on the tops?”

Harry: “Yea! We can go skiing!”

Me: “Not yet, dear. There is snow up there because of all the rain we’ve had lately. The higher up the mountain, the colder it gets. That’s when the rain turns to snow. There still isn’t enough snow for skiing.”

This turned into a large discussion about rain, snow and ice – a little science lesson on the road that suddenly turned into something else.

Harry: “The snow comes from the sky, and we come from Heaven. We come down from Heaven. Live and then go back to Heaven when we die.”

Me: “Who taught you that, Harrison?”

Harry: “Mom, that’s just the way it is.”

Me: “Of course.”

Ella, not wanting to stay out of the conversation, shouts out: “God made us.”

Harry: “He made everyone, but I wanna know who made God? Could he have made hisself?”

Ella: “Yeah? Who made God?”

How did the conversation turn to this? I just wanted them to appreciate the view!
