My parents taught my brother and me to say grace before every meal as little kids, so I naturally wanted to pass that tradition on to my children. Until last week, Connor's involvement was a resounding "A-men!" in unison with us at the end of the prayer. But he surprised us the other day with this, so I had to ask for an encore and catch it on tape.
By the way, don't be embarrassed to tell me that you can't understand what he is saying. And also, don't be embarrassed to tell me that this isn't the most original of dinnertime prayers. I am totally aware that that is probably the case on both accounts. But we know what he's saying, and I am just thrilled that he is learning good habits early. However, if you have a great prayer to pass on, feel free to share! In the meantime, here is a translation (in case you don't already know it by heart):
God is great; God is good, and we thank him for our food.
By his grace must all be fed; give us, Lord, our daily bread.
