MOVIES AND HEADACHES!

Tonight I took my Sunday morning bible class of four 5th and 6th graders to the movies to see Marley and Me as a reward for memorizing 12 Bible verses in 12 weeks, all about Jesus. These four kids, one girl (McKayla) and three boys (Collin, Josh & John), do a terrific job memorizing bible verses, facts, lists and just about anything else that we can throw at them about the Bible. It is amazing to me the vast knowledge at their age that they have about the Bible, about God's plan for them, and even the knowledge they have about things most adults just don't seem to get.

Now, the headache part. You know the kind of headache I'm talking about; right? The kind you get when all you really want to do is just bawl like a little baby, but you can't, 'cause you're in public and everybody is going to be watching {say, I dunno, like three elementary school boys who think it's funny you're crying at a movie}, so you have to try as best you can to keep it in. Yeah, that's the one, the kind I like to call the pressure cooker headache. Well, let me tell you if you haven't seen Marley and Me, you need to go see this movie. It was THAT good and well worth the headache. Now...where's that stinkin' Tylenol?

AND...as an added bonus, we were the only five people in the movie theatre!! Way to go Monday night at the movies!
