A few weeks ago, the crocodile hunter was complaining about having to learn math and Latin. Like most kids, he started asking why he needed to know either subject. I asked him what he thought he wanted to do when he got older. His responses revolved mostly around paleontology, veterinary medicine and zoology. I calmly explained exactly how Latin and math played a role in each career option he listed. I thought the subject was closed. A week later he came to me. "Mom, I got it. I know what I want to be - an artist. I am pretty sure they don't need to know Latin or math!" So, apparently he has been practicing for his future career as an iconographer - during liturgy no less.
