Just like Adam….sorta

August 30, 2007

Journal, Lauren

The first week in preschool we just do things that are self-directed so that the teachers can be available for helping children who might feel sad, or need some redirection.  We’ve been stepping it up, though, and have talked about Creation, and how God created the world and people.  We’ve made some self-portraits with paper & pen, collage materials, and some ‘face’ games, and lately we’ve talked about the whole body.  I’ve been setting the play dough out with no tools, because when God formed Adam he didn’t use cookie cutters, y’know.  Today’s the third day they’ve worked on this, and I’m pleased to see that they can now include arms on their human figures. See?  Just like Adam!
Pink and Plump

Ok, now I have to tell a joke.  Lloyd’s mom sent it to us:

A scientist walked up to God and said, “God, we’ve figured out a way to make people.  We can create them from earth and breathe life into them just as you did.  You are irrelevant now.”

God says, “Ok, show me how you do it.”

The scientist begins to scoop some earth to form it into a human, but God stops him and says, “No no no – get your own dirt.”

    We’re talking about Creation in 7th grade right now too! But I don’t think I’ll have them make Adam from play dough. 🙂

    HAHA!!! Love the joke! I’m gonna tell everyone I see today that one.

    And I love Pink Adam! His legs are a little skinny, but I assume he’s a work in progress …
