More info on the breakfast

I was asked what questions we asked for the boys that lead them to ask for fish and bread for breakfast... here is a small portion of the gospel reading.


When they climbed out on shore,they saw a charcoal fire with fish on it and
bread.Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you just caught.”So Simon
Peter went over and dragged the net ashorefull of one hundred fifty-three large
fish.Even though there were so many, the net was not torn.Jesus said to them,
Come, have breakfast.”And none of the disciples dared to ask him, “Who are
you?”because they realized it was the Lord.Jesus came over and took the bread
and gave it to them,and in like manner the fish.This was now the third time
Jesus was revealed to his disciplesafter being raised from the dead.

One question we asked was "what meal did Jesus ask them to come and have with Him?"

Bubba quickly answered breakfast... he NEVER misses a food reference, and then they broke into "can we have fish and bread for breakfast".

As far as other questions... once we finish reading it, we simply pick out things that they should've caught. If they can't come up with an answer we usually re-read a sentence or two to refresh their memory.

Thanks, we realized after reading your post that weve been dropping the ball in trying to include our daughter in the readings. We've been faithful to reading them at the dinner table, we've just been lax on asking her questions lately, due to time constraints. We did it this evening and she was SOOOO not interested, so we realize we need to get back into questions and answer sessions, as we were a little rusty asking questions.
