Some Things Never Change!

Last night was Garrett's Seminary Graduation.
They had a wonderful program and our stake had about 40 graduates.

For those who are unfamiliar with seminary,
it is an early morning (6am) scripture study class held every day before school.

In order to graduate, students must have 80% attendance or better for all 4 years, read the book of scripture that is being studied each year, and have an interview with their bishop.
It really is quite an accomplishment!
Do you know how hard it is to get up EVERY morning at 5:15ish?
So..........CONGRATS to GARRETT!

But just in case you thought that everyone was growing up and all mature,
listen in on this conversation -

Parker and Garrett were in the kitchen giggling and laughing uncontrollably over stupid, idiotic stuff.
I am immediately suspicious when ANYbody is having too much fun.
I'm pretty sure I heard the word "fart."

So I yelled from my room, "Guys. Cut it out!"
Garrett: "What?  What are we doing?"

Me: "I don't know but quit laughing.  No more 'pee pee, poo poo.'"
Parker busts out laughing even harder.
Me: "Parker, seriously.  Cut it out.  it's not funny."
Garrett: " Pee Pee, Poo Poo is ALWAYS funny!  I don't care WHO you are."

I LOVED going to seminary. It was an elective class in high school (no credit but during school hours) so I didn't have to wake up early - gotta love that - but congrats to your boy.

Stopping by from Half Past Kissin Time, nice to met you :)

We are just one year away from seminary. As a "release time" seminary graduate, I don't know how I will live through the early morning version with my children. Also, your posts always remind me that I am the only girl in my house. It frightens me.
