Still here

I knew I wasn't going to make it on here much over the summer. I wish I'd managed to do better since school started. Sigh.

But I had a good laugh over this one so thought I'd least it will be written down:

So last night after dinner we read the end of Alma 37 together with the kids, and after reading, reviewed what we'd just read in a little plainer English. Besides helping make the scriptural language a little less confusing, this practice also supplies us with occasional evidence of just how creative our kids can be when they are caught not listening...

Mom: So, Buzz, the Lord gave Lehi and his family the Liahona to guide them in the wilderness. And what did they have to have in order for it to work for them?

Buzz: They had to repent and have faith.

Mom: Good. (Thinks she's tossing Aslan a softball, since the question's already been answered) OK, Aslan, what did Lehi and his family have to have in order to make the Liahona work?

Aslan (caught napping): Um, batteries?


  1. I'm so glad you are writing thi stuff down. It is priceless.
