Last night our FHE lesson was on the Plan of Salvation (or as I like to call it: The Great Plan of Happiness!)
We were having a great discussion and lots of participation--and then Andy called. I walked over to answer the phone and within SECONDS everything deteriorated into a big wrestling match (this is nothing new!). They let the dog in to join in the mayhem too. I came back with Dad on Skype so he could enjoy the chaos that we call family togetherness.
Later, I saw that my phone was on the couch where Shane had been sitting. I saw this texting interchange between Shane and Seth (who had been sitting two feet away on the other couch)
Shane: This lesson is the bomb.com
Seth: Pay attention.
Shane: I have given this lesson before in my class, but this one is much better than the other lame versions I have had.
Shane: My teacher forgot about final judgement and the spirit world.
Shane: That's when I said "ummmmmm can I teach the lesson?" he instantly agreed.
Shane: Yur such an enourmis troll!!!!!!!!!
Shane: Yo dawg. I heard you like goin to the celestial kingdom.
(I'm feeling pretty good about the fact that my lesson compared favorably to other lessons Shane has had on the subject. A little concerned about him critiquing his church teachers though. I have to say it's refreshing to see Seth telling Shane to pay attention--never thought I would see the day. Looks like we need some spelling practice for the word enormous. Nevermind that he randomly calls his big brother a troll!)
