Dad: What happened?

Kids and the Pope

If you kids attend a Catholic school (or a public one for that matter), what are learning or being told about the Pope's visit to the US? Are there any lesson plans built around it? Do they watch any news coverage?

My kids were told he was coming, but that was about it. Oh, and that he would have a birthday over here! Just curious what other schools were doing (or not).

Conversation in the Living Room

To my son, with his arm cocked back...

Me: Don't throw that.

4-year old: Can I toss it?
