Who Broke It???

I was brushing my teeth tonight and noticed that Tami's little mirror/light thing was broken. She walked into the bathroom and I asked her what had happened to her mirror. Her response was classic. She told me, "It fell two times and it broke. I haven't replaced it yet." I told her that I knew none of the kids had done it because the response would have been, "Fill in the blank child did it." I started laughing and told her that I knew she did it by the answer she gave me. She still says that it just fell but for some reason, I'm not buying it. I guess sometimes mirrors that are sitting on a counter just happen to fall off. So if any of you have those, please be careful. You may wake up some morning with glass on the floor.

PS

Tami just told me the truth. She kept putting it on top of her cords and then she would pull the cords and it would "fall" off the counter.

Isaac's Performance

video

Isaac played the descant part of I Am a Child of God for the primary program yesterday. He did a great job. When we were trying to get this video of him he had some sort of mistake everytime so we kept deleting and trying again. We finally resolved to just have a video with a mistake in it!

Alvin Workin' on the Railroad

Silas bombarded me with some interesting questions today... "Why does Alvin work on the railroad?", "How does he stay safe?", "How does he move the tracks?". I was caught completely off guard. I really didn't have answers for him. I asked him what cartoon he saw that on - no cartoons. I asked if they read him a book about that at preschool - nope. Did he mean Alvin and the chipmonks - ummm NO. I didn't know what to tell him. About 10 min. later he asked me, "Mom, what's the next words in the song?". I asked him what song. He said, "You know, 'Alvin workin' on the railroad, all the live long day'". OHHHHHHHH It all fianlly made sense!

Most Boring Class Ever

I taught Isaac's primary class yesterday at church. I have been teaching adults for quite a while and I must have been a little bit off of my game with 7 and 8 year olds. After church, Tami asked him how his class was. He told her that it was really boring. In fact he said, "It was the most boring class ever. Next time we shouldn't read so much." I also forgot to bring candy for all the kids who brought their scriptures. Thanks for the warning on that one Isaac.

Tami thought that I would be upset by his comments. I couldn't be upset because I had to agree with him. It wasn't a very fun class. The kids were great too. I was just making sure they realized how good they had it with their normal teachers. They all realize that now!!!
