Primary Panic

Yesterday we had a combined 5th Sunday lesson in the chapel. Andrew started freaking out in the beginning of the meeting and I was actually in the mother's lounge for the whole meeting. I left just about as the Primary was let loose. They made a mad dash for the Relief Society room. When I turned the corner so I could see them, I saw a pretty good sized group of kids looking around confused. One little 5 year old girl (or so) turns to the group and says (much like Chicken Little), "The mommies are GONE!" with tears in her eyes. This sets off the other kids. I hurried over to avoid the possible freak-out session and explain where their mothers were. Kidnapped by aliens, of course.
It was hilarious.
In other news, I am REALLY digging The Princess Bride and totally recommend it! If you love the movie, you'll LOVE the book. But you don't have to take MY word on it.

Da duh duh!

Oh my goodness. The story of the little kids was so sad and funny but when I got to you saying you don't have to take my word on it and the picture of Reading Rainbow made me laugh pretty hysterically. (and I do mean actually laughing really hard.) SO FUNNY KAREN!

That is funny! And I agree about the Princess Bride book! I'll have to read that one again, it's been over a decade and a half. I enjoyed it a lot, as I remember.

Oh, my gosh. Your story about the primary kids is so funny. It would almost make a funny skit.

Oh man that Reading Rainbow plug was hilarious.

Have you read all the "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" books? Thats another classic I will be reading to Ava her whole life. Also if you can find it you should read "Are All the Giants Dead". If not I will let you borrow mine! :)

I liked the Princess Bride book, except they made Buttercup more stupid in the book. I liked her better in the movie! Other than that, I like the book better for all the details.

Reading Rainbow!! I haven't seen that for YEARS! I loved that show. The primary story made me laugh... really really hard! TOO hilarious! And how smart of you and Andrew to make sure you didn't miss that. :D
