Pilgrims and Indians

The following conversation took place during lunch yesterday:

Me: So, Tabitha, at school did you learn about pilgrims?
Tabitha: Yes.
Me: And who else?
Tabitha: Indians! 
Me: Ahh. And are these Indians from India?
Tabitha: Yes.

This was followed by a half an hour dissertation from mommy that included, but is not limited to: how the peach people killed a lot of the native Americans and made them move; why Mexicans are tan, but Cubans are not; and why the land sections, called reserves, don't have to follow all the laws of America. The kids kept asking, "then what happened?!" I'm glad they love to learn, but I know most of this goes right over their heads.

"You are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28
