VBS

***Disclaimer: If you don't enjoy Evan's sarcastic humor, please do not continue...

On Saturday night, Ekitzel came up and spent the night with Evan, Kyle, and I. We were driving out by Fashion Place Mall in Salt Lake City. We passed a Christian book store that had a sign advertising cirriculum for VBS.

Ekitzel: What's VBS?
Evan: Vacation Bible School
Me: It's like you never lived in the mid-west......
Ekitzel: But I have.
Me: I know, how could you not know that when you lived in Kansas?
Ekitzel: The kids usually left me alone after they realized I was Mormon.
Me: I've gone to so many vacation bible schools. I even went to a Korean vacation bible school. I could sing "Jesus Loves Me" in Korean when I was little.
Evan: What is "Jesus Loves Me"?
Me: [in shock and awe] you don't know "Jesus Loves Me"?

---after calling my mom to get help with the tune, I sang them a beautiful version of "Jesus Loves Me" (only the first verse)-----

Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! He who died,
Heaven's gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! loves me still,
When I'm very weak and ill;
From His shining throne on high,
Comes to watch me where I lie.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! He will stay,
Close beside me all the way;
He's prepared a home for me,
And some day His face I'll see.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.
-------------------------------------

Me: You guys really don't know that song?
Ekitzel: No.
Me: Well, I guess you guys were being taught, "I am a Child of God."
Evan: That's right, we were learning why Jesus loves us and the mechanics of his love......[said in the most condescending sarcastic Evan voice]

I love my husband. He cracks me up--

Sounds like something James would say. Funny, funny.

I went to vacation bible school too, but I was LDS at the time! I think that my mom was looking for a wholesome kind of day care for her 9- and 10-year-old. And I learned how to sing Jesus loves me in Navajo! :) No joke!
