the joys of children

It never fails: hearing the fast, excited, jumbled, chatter of a handful of 8 year old boys coming through our front door brings a smile to my face every time.

Today is the first day of Christmas vacation for the schools, the kid's are completely wild with expectation for Christmas, so we're watching Elf, one of the best Christmas movies ever. If they actually make it through the whole movie, I'll be shocked.

The sequence of events over the last three minutes:

Adam C.: "Don't eat the yellow snow, because you know what that is!"

Adam A.: "Cheese?"

Robbie: "Turkey?"

Adam A.: "Oh, is it pee?"
Now they've decided on their own to review the catechism questions we've been learning in Youth Club on Friday's.
Now they're moving on to wrestling.
Robbie: "After this can we play the Wii?"

See why I'd be surprised if they make it through the whole movie?

I sure am gonna miss these kids when we leave.
