Here is a sad little story for you :( (Well, part is sad, the other is pretty clever!) Arwen and Noah were playing with their "clippers" (scissors) yesterday doing some crafts. Joshua grabbed a pair of the scissors, which are just little kid scissors. No one was watching him very closely and he decided that cutting paper wasn't too much fun and decided to try cutting a different medium...his Larkily. He cut a big slice down her thumb. She started screaming and Aaron figured out what happened and fixed Larkin and put Josh on a time out. I was upstairs getting ready for the day when Aaron told me what happened. I asked Josh to come to me so I could talk to him. I asked him what he did and he said, " I cut Larky's finger." I asked him what he needed to say to his Larky and he said, "Sorry Larky," and then ran away happy-go-lucky. Then I overheard Noah talking to Aaron about what happended. He said, " Dad, Josh definitley has Lamanite Power." (Lamenites, for those who don't know are the really bad, naughty guys in the Book of Mormon.) Then Noah came upstairs and told me something about Josh. He said, "Mom, Joshua is really a monster. He is a monster who is wearing a mask. He never takes that mask off, but he is really a monster under that mask."

We got Aaron a small, pocket sized camera for his birthday yesterday and here is picture one of the kids took of beautiful Larkily. Poor little Larkily!

Where does Noah come up with this stuff? I swear your kids have the biggest imaginations in the world. Poor Larkin!

Noah is so funny! His imagination is through the roof! At least you know that some gospel principles are getting through to him. Laminite power indeed. I'm going to share this "story" with my primary class.
