Sam kept looking at the nativity scene we had set up in out foyer. After a day or two of staring at it in puzzlement, he told Kathleen, "Hey, didn't I play that 'Jesus dad guy' in that 'thing' last year?"
It was true. He played Joseph in the nativity play put on by his preschool class last year, as a three year old. And a year later, as a four year old, he remembered well enough to relate the image of the nativity, Jesus. Mary, and Joseph and the angels, in a little desktop statue to a play done a year earlier. It is amazing how those little minds work.
