This was my worst week in primary yet. I finally had to ban all chairs from the class room because the crazy kids couldn't keep them on the floor. And a member of the primary presidency is now in the regular habit of taping the light switches during opening exercises because the kids have some weird issue with turning them off. It's a major battle. I don't think any of their quotes have been as funny since the first week I started writing them, but they seem to be popular, so here it is by popular demand...Out of the Mouth of Babes.
A: We fast when we brush our teeth.
L: I choose the right by letting my sister brush her teeth first.
A: 'I like to move it, move it!' (We were playing follow the leader and when it was A.'s turn to be the leader, he sang this accompanied by a crazy little dance.)
E: I have to whisper something in your ear. When I went to the bathroom, I couldn't go pee because there was a baby getting his diaper changed in there and it was a boy. I didn't want him to watch me.
L: I show my sister I love her when I share my balloon.
During sharing time, Sis. N. asked the kids if they knew what was on her poster. A child yelled out: It must be a pirate map!
Sis. V. had a teacher walk down the hall during singing time to see how far she could get and still hear the singing. When she asked how far they thought she could get, one kid answered: To the end of the earth!
I really wish I had my pen and paper out during sacrament meeting. I'd say at least six or seven young men got up to bear their testimonies today. You'd think some one had promised them a candy bar or something. But I don't think that was the case. When one of them got up he encouraged the rest of the young men to get up, too...and they did. One by one we heard the simple and strong testimonies of these stalwart young men. It was awesome. I've never really lived in a ward where the young men get up to bear their testimonies...especially cool young men. Shoot, I never bore my testimony from the pulpit until college. I think I did it one year at girls camp and probably even at EFY and possibly youth conference. I was impressed. What a great group of young men. These are the only two comments I remember from them....and it's not word for word, but close. Again, I wish I had a pen handy. I really enjoyed testimony meeting today.
I just want to bear my testimony of the brotherhood in this ward...
When they split wards, I wasn't really happy about it. All my friends were in another ward. (Then, in an effort to retain is current ward friends he added the following.) Well not all my friends.
The youth are so fun.
