Dinner Conversations

As I've mentioned before, Isabella is the girl with all the questions. Tonight I participated in a rapid fire session during supper time that included (but was not limited to!):

"How did God start?"
"Why do we have to get old?"
"Is lettuce a cabbage or just plain old lettuce?"
"Where does lettuce grow? Why?"
"Who were the first people in Nebraska?"
"Why did God create pointy plants?"
"How are books made?"
"Who is Abraham Lincoln?"
"How do we get soap?"
"How are needles made?"

We also managed to touch briefly on the topic of predestination. Her questions were completely random, coming from who-knows-where in that little head of hers. I left dinner mentally drained and feeling not-so-smart. I'm off to youtube in hopes of finding a video that shows just HOW needles are made. And the first people in Nebraska were probably the plains Indians, right? ;o)

WOW--that is quite the stimulating conversation! I would be totally lost too trying to answer questions like that. :) How sweet that she is thinking about these things already...oh, and let us know if you find out about the needles. :)

Let me know if you come up with a definitive answer on why God made pointy plants. Arizona has more than it's fair share! ;-) What a fun girl!

Must be a 'second born' thing. Evan is our question guy and has come up with some doozies over the years. Yay for 'google' and for the always fitting answer...."I'm not sure. That's just how God wanted to do it." :)
