Snakes and Nudity and Banishment, Oh My!

EDEN: paradise; the garden where according to the account in Genesis Adam and Eve first lived; a place of pristine or abundant natural beauty

Daughter attends Wednesday morning chapel at her preschool.  That makes Wednesday night dinners especially interesting at our house.  Inevitably, there is an over-simplified Bible story re-cap from Daughter (3¾) followed by confusion from Son (6). 

Recently it went something like this:

Daughter: There were naked people and they made themselves clothes. 

Son: Why were they naked?

Daughter: I don’t know, but God was mad. He asked who told them they were naked.  They pointed to the snake.  And, they ate some fruit.  God made them leave.

Son: [alarmed] What was wrong with the fruit?!?!
