Steve's been grading confirmation quizzes--here's a hilarious "kids say the darndest things" quote:

Question--Where did Moses receive the 10 Commandments?
Answer--Mt. Cyanide

That's the highlight of my day right there.

Dude! That kid's right on track! I thought for the longest time it was Mt. Cyanide too!

Of course, I always thought it was the Confederacy that threatened the Union with the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1862. Then I was corrected: it was totally the Union's fault!

I once watched a video when I was in the 2nd grade about drugs. Included in the list of drugs were cigarettes and beer. I fled from the classroom, bawling my eyes out, and when my teacher followed to ask what was wrong, I sobbed, "My daddy does drugs."

My mother was promptly called to the school. Ah, I'll NEVER live that one down.

GREAT story Lauren. I must share a recent one in my own family:

Yesterday morning, my sis was driving Hank to school and he was asking where baby Jesus was born. She told him about Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem and how there were no inns with rooms. The stable, the wise men, the kings, the animals...they talked about it all. Hank was very intrigued by all of this and my sis was thinking "wow this is such a great conversation to be having with my three year old." Then Hank thought quietly for a moment true to his three year old self, said, "Mom, did they lick Jesus? The animals...did they lick him?"

Great stories, girls! Lovin' it.

And Cap'n, to this day, I'm still embarrassed of my history knowledge. . .my dad often does the "I paid (insert highly-exaggerated money amount) for your college education and you don't know. . ." blah blah blah. I bet you learned your mistake in like 8th grade, and I'm still learning things everyone else already knows! What a dork. Sorry, Daddy.

Ahhhh very clever Capn. You didn't say which union though did you?

Lauren, have you gotten to the part where Moses tied his ass to a tree and walked into town? Or was that Jesus? Either way, it spells lower back pain.
