A Survey

A few days ago I was looking through some old posts I’d put on Facebook – before I started this blog.  I think I might migrate some of those notes to this page so they are all in one place.  But that is something for another day.

Anyhow, while I was looking through those posts I came across these questions I’d asked Micah when he was 5.  Since Jonas is now 5 I thought it would be fun to see what he might say in response to the same questions.  I wouldn’t let Jonas hear Micah’s answers until he answered for himself first.
