Ruby and I walked a path into the woods so she could pick flowers for her Grammy this morning. When we got back to the house I asked her about her favorite flowers, thinking she'd recognize them by their color.
I said, "I like purple flowers."
She responded, "Oh Papa, do you mean the Violets? I love Violets. Roses too, but especially Violets."
All this time I've been calling them "purple" and she's ready to begin cataloguing their taxonomic ranks - right down to genus and species.
Never underestimate a kid.
Genesis 2:19 - Out of the ground the Lord God formed every wild beast and living creature of the field and every bird of the air and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them; and whatever Adam called every living creature, that was its name.
