Little Soldiers

If you aren't already aware of it, we're a homeschooling family. Both Isaiah and Elijah are homeschooled four days a week and go to a co-op school one day a week.
Lately we've been learning about World War II in History. I was relaying a story of some French priests taking Jewish children to safety. As I told the boys that the priests took the children over the border to Switzerland, Elijah gasped.
"Switzerland! They're bad!!"
Completely confused, I questioned him, "Why are they bad, Elijah?"
"They tried to beat our hockey team!!"
Now that's some serious Olympic sentiment...

Here is a photo their teacher sent me from "Boot Camp Day" in their History class; Isaiah is in the back middle and that's my little Swiss-judger in the far back left whose face you can hardly see:
