heaven and hell - conversations with a four year-old

So maybe this is normal or maybe it isn't, but we talk a lot about death, heaven and hell in our house. And by a lot I mean many conversations daily. We try to tailor the conversations to the understanding ability of a four year-old, which is difficult with this kid's questions. We also try to be biblical correct. I don't want to give him incorrect information, though it would be much easier than the research and remembering I've been doing! I also want to give him age-appropriate information, which can be difficult to gauge. Here's what we've said so far:
- once you go to heaven or hell, you stay there forever
- heaven is a wonderful nice place where you live with Jesus forever
- hell is a bad place (Wes also calls it dangerous) with fire and you are sad forever.
If you know of any good books or resources that might answer his questions, please leave a comment and let me know!!

This morning while driving (obviously it was me driving), Wesley started his daily question and answer session regarding heaven and hell...

Wes: Are there cars in heaven?
Me: I don't know. The Bible doesn't say, but I doubt it.
Wes: Are there cars in hell?
Me: I don't know. The Bible doesn't say, but I doubt it.

a few seconds later...
Wes: Do you wear clothes in heaven?
Me: I don't know, the Bible doesn't say. {are you noticing a pattern here?}
Wes: I hope not.
Me: Why?
Wes: I like being naked.

a few seconds after that...
Wes: Do you eat in heaven?
Me: I don't know, the Bible doesn't say.  
Wes: I'm pretty sure you have to eat in hell.
Me: Why?
Wes: Because its hell. {what else could I expect from the kid who HATES to eat?}
Me: (laughing) Okay...
Wes: (in a serious tone) It's not funny.
Me: Maybe a little?
Wes: (an even more serious tone) No, it's not.
Me: (still snickering in the front seat)
Wes: Still not funny, Mommy.

Silly, silly boy...

soccer ends, Uncle Scott visits

Completely unrelated to anything, but "Big Brother" started this week!! I didn't start watching this show until about tow years ago, but I'm hooked now. Are people that crazy in "real" life?! Surely not.

Wesley's finished his first (and probably his last) soccer season. Maybe its just his age, but he really wasn't interested in kicking the ball, chasing the ball, passing the ball, scoring a goal. In his defense though, he did score a goal on his own team with another player. Don't think I didn't cheer too! I figure he can learn the basics later, or not.

Wesley with his Doda, Pawpaw, and Uncle Scott

Wesley and Uncle Scott (look how much Wes has grown!) The first picture was taken the weekend after we came home from Ukraine.

more fun with Uncle Scott

I'm getting all the vacation pictures ready to post, so get ready!!
