The eleventh commandment (that I'm sure was left off inadvertently): Thou shalt not smite thy brother

I was sitting next to Jake in the pew when suddenly he picks up a hymnal and hits himself in the forehead. What!? He follows that up by kneeing the pew in front of him. I don’t know why. Maybe he was bored. Probably he was just expressing his feelings at being forced to go to church. It just got better from there. I look over at my husband who is taking a nap while I’m trying to keep the kids contained in our area. When we got home the kids start talking about smiting each other. I told Lizzy to stop smiting Jake and she responds, “I’m not smiting him. I’m pretending to kick him.” At least they are picking something up from church.

You know, cliff was put into the HP group because he sleeps through church too. Pres. Kimball said sleeping on sunday was an acceptable thing to do, as well as attend church. So, do they get double prizes?

J has it down pat. He sits on the end and I have kids on both sides of me so I get from all sides.

We believe in the laying on of hands. . . . elbows, knees, feet and big sticks! Some times, people just need a smite.
