I'm in charge of teaching catechism to a fourth grade class, every week. Today, as part of a brief "Show and Tell", I showed them a picture of my confirmation, from 2000. They were able to recognize Bishop McGrath pretty easily, which is impressive, considering that none of them have ever met him. However, no one was able to recognize me in the picture. Funny how that works out.
Once the kids learned that the picture was taken in the year 2000, they all agreed that I am "really old" because I was alive back then. Apparently, none of them were even born yet when that picture was taken.
They also all agreed that I shouldn't assign them any homework. I think it took about three seconds for them to come to that group decision. It's amazing how quickly kids can decide things sometimes.
