A Jacob funny

The goodbyes have officially begun. Well I guess they began the week we went to Cappadocia. While we were there we said goodbye to some friends who live there. Then yesterday Abby and Nat came from out of town to spend the night with us and say goodbye. Last night after dinner Abby, Jacob, and I were standing in the kitchen. Abby was looking in one of the cupboards to see if there was anything she wanted to buy from us. This is the conversation that took place.

Abby: Did you add a shelf in this cupboard?
Natalie: No. All those shelves were there before.
Abby: Well, it looks different. Are you sure you didn't do anything to it?
Natalie: Yep. Nothing is new or different.
Jacob: You just haven't been here in a long time. You have forgotten a lot.
Abby: I know. I guess you're right, Jacob.
Jacob: Um...it's Josh.

Totally cracked us up. Funny boy!

Hahaha. I love it when kids are able to make jokes and be really funny. It's usually surprising what they think up and how quick they are with it.

Man I wish I was that quick! Very funny.

Very funny! That Jacob/Josh is quite a kid!

By the way, I was one of the anonymous ones on the last post. Sometimes it doesn't log me in right and I didn't notice that time.
