This weekend is a big weekend for us – our church is holding an Installation Service in celebration of Beloved being elected as the new Senior Pastor. We’ve been talking to the kids about it to prepare them and let them know what is going to happen. Both can be a bit self-conscious if they feel like too many people are looking at them, so we were talking about when the two of them were to come up on the platform. We were trying to keep it light so we were joking about things they shouldn’t do.

Me: “Don’t hide behind me!”

Beloved: “Or pick your nose!”

Me: “Or sit down on the floor!”

We kept on thinking of silly things to add until Viking piped up with his own addition.

Viking: “Or get NAKED!”

Ummm…. no. Please don’t do that either.

We laughed for a good long time over that one.
