One beautiful Saturday morning, we arrived at the church just in time for Sabbath school. The boys were excited to get inside. Both of their teachers are amazing. Son #1's class always has a little project to do after they sing and listen to a Bible story.
I was busily undoing the car seat straps when I noticed Son #1 inching closer to the church. We were parked in a large parking lot so I shouted. "Look both ways before you cross! You don't want to get run over by a car!"
Son #1 walked with confidence into the middle of the lane. He stood for a moment contemplating his next move. Then, he looked both ways for oncoming cars. He called out. "I looked both ways! I don't see any cars!"
A church member passed my son as he continued to stand in the middle of the lane. She giggled with amusement and then made a wry comment. "Well, at least he knows how to look both ways."
I chimed back. "Now, we just need to work on looking both ways BEFORE crossing the street."
