During conversation practice with students, we take turns asking and answering questions. That might be a time my sense of humor comes forth such as telling the students I was born in 2000. Last Friday when I said that along with that I am 22 years old. my friend Azari told me I wasn’t. He told me I am 25 years old.
Azari is a six year old boy who comes to my Friday class at the Ukrainian church with his mom. He knows exactly where the snack box is and likes sharing snacks with the adults. So what was his logic behind thinking I must be 25 and not 22?
In his six year old mind, I have a beard and men cannot grow a beard until they are 25 years old. The color of the beard does not matter just that I have a beard, so I must be 25. I thanked him for his astute observation that I am 25 and gave him some chocolate.
Children are a blessing and valued greatly by Jesus. He blessed children while on earth such as we see in Matthew 19:14:
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
I enjoy seeing Azari each Friday afternoon, I wonder how much longer he will think I am 25?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Kids are so much fun 🙂
Yes they are 🙂
Azari is observant. He knows you are at least 25. This number represents a lifetime to a 6 year old.
lol true 🙂
LOL, until he mentions it to his parents.
Haha love it!! You have such great experiences and memories from your classroom, glad you share them with us!!
Glad to share them. 🙂
Kids think and say the “darnest things.”
