What is it about the start of school ...

... that makes me fixate on my kids? Is it the sudden leaps of cognition that become apparent when they bring work home that you didn't see them create -- work that it's hard for you to imagine them laboring over and perfecting? Or is it just the transition from state to state, from kindergartener to first-grader or nursery to preschool, that makes every detail of their lives seem fleeting and precious?

Today's kidblog moment is brought to you by the Episcopal Diocese of Arkansas.

Archer: (walking away from the altar after communion) Dad, I ate my church bread with church dip.

(More tonight at Toxophily, where I anxiously await my turn in a cross-country knitting relay race. Yes, I know, knitting makes you crazy -- or maybe crazy makes you knit.)
