Gee, I Can't Imagine Why Not

Justice (6) and Clayton (3) were just now having an argument as follows:

Clayton: NO!!

Justice:  Fine. I'm NEVER playing Indiana Jones with you ever again. I'm never ever going to play Indiana Jones with you again, Clayton. Never.

Me: What's going on?

 Justice: He won't get tied up when I hit him with the whip!

Messy Man

Clayton and I baked a cake together.  As we were finishing, I told him that we need to wash him up because he was all messy.  He immediately took off with that idea.

"I'm MESSY MAN!! I have Messy Power!  Pshzew!  Pshzew!"  

As he is pretending to throw his 'Messy Power Lightening' at the wall, I'm thinking, 'Never were truer words ever spoken, kid!'

Then as I attack him with a wash cloth, he whisper-screams,  "No!  It burns us!  It burns us!"

That kid cracks me up sometimes.

Understanding Isaiah

After years and years of not understanding, I FINALLY get an Isaiah verse!  It's Isaiah's version of a wiggle song!  In the middle of all of that stuff that I can't quite grasp, it's time to stand up and get the wiggles out, so maybe I'll have a better chance of understanding what is to follow.  See look: 

 Book of Mormon, 3 Nephi 20:37: 

"Shake thyself from the dust; arise, sit down, O Jerusalem; loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion."

compare to

"Oh, How We Love to Stand," page 279 in the Children's Song Book:

"Oh how we love to stand
And turn ourselves around
Shake the left and shake the right,
But best of all sit down"

(I'm so going to the bad place!)

Drill Sargent

My brother Todd and his wife Suzanne are home on leave!!!! YAY!!! Todd got up to run with my early running group and me. After we ran, Todd came over for breakfast. The best part though was Todd waking the kids up for school. They haven't seen their Air-force Uncle in about a year and a half, so it was hilarious to see the mixture of shock and surprise and then delight as Todd sneaked up and got right in their faces and woke them up like a Drill Sargent.
