Who's your favorite saint that you know something about? St. Joseph. What do you know about St. Joseph? He married Mary. What do you like about St. Joseph? That he watched over Jesus. I thought you would have picked Mary as your favorite. Well, yeah, but I didn't really think of her as a saint. Because she seems more special? Yeah.
What is something you want to do before you turn eight? Go to California. Learn how to read long words and stuff. Then I could read long books like Lord of the Rings.
