I have a couple of stories I need to share about a couple of my kids and how totally awesome they are. The first story is about this cute raccoon girl (who is totally obsessed with raccoons).
A couple weeks ago she came into my bedroom in the morning and told me this story:
"Mom, when I was in the bathroom I heard a noise. I thought it might be a robber or a kidnapper so I decided that I was going to go teach him the gospel so he would know not to do that stuff anymore."
Me: "Oh yeah? What were you going to teach him?"
Kate: "I can't remember everything I was going to say but I was going to sing this song:
Jesus said love everyone
Treat them kindly too.
When your heart is full of love,
Others will love you.
Then he would know not to do bad stuff anymore!"
Okay....if you can't be converted by this sweet girls singing that song to you then you have no heart at all! I was so proud of her!
(and just for the record...there were no robbers or kidnappers in our house at that time....or any other time, for that matter.)
Me: "Will how come you're so smart?
Will: Because I go to nursery.
Me: What do you learn about in nursery?
Will: Jesus loves me!!
For anyone that's ever been in a nursery calling, you know the lessons last about 2 minutes if you're lucky and you never actually believe that the kids are listening. I'm here to tell you right now that they are!!! Will didn't even hesitate when he said it. To me, that is the most important lesson you can ever learn is that Jesus loves you. If he can remember this for the rest of his life...he will be set! Thank you nursery leaders. You're doing a great job!
He also wanted a solo picture of his burpy. What would we do without burpy?
I finally did pull out the camera after midnight and snapped this picture of the party crowd. Nobody even looks tired yet! Thanks Maynes.....that was a fun night!
