Ornery Oration

Derek is starting to get interested in praying. He loves to remind us to say prayers before Carter leaves for school. . . when he sees Carter getting his back pack on, he kneels down and says "Hen Fader." So the other night at dinner, Garth asked him if he wanted to say the prayer and he very enthusiastically nodded his head. So the prayer went like this.

Garth: Heavenly Father

Derek (shaking his head): No Hen Fader.

Garth: Thank you for the food.

Derek (still shaking his head): No food.

Garth: Thank you for our family.

Derek (more shaking) No family.

Garth: In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Derek (with a big smile on his face): Men!
