More Tweaking

After practicing Come Follow Me with our Ward Choir, I decided it needed some tweaking and stretching. Why oh why did I think it was a good idea to squish six measures of music onto one line?

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!

Fun Times at Seminary

Most of you know that I teach Early Morning Seminary, right? Well, yesterday, I asked one of the boys to return something to the library and gave him my building keys. After class I could not find the keys anywhere. I figured the boy slipped them into his pocket and forgot to give them to me. Of course, by the time I realized I couldn't find them, the students were already on their way to school.

It's a short walk and I wanted to catch the kids before they got to school. So I jumped in my car and sped down the road looking for the boy. He happened to be on the corner near his school just about to cross the street with a bunch of other students. I yelled to him from my car but he didn't hear me, so I started yelling and gesturing to all the students.

By this time, other parents in other cars who were there to drop off their students began to notice the crazy lady screaming and yelling at the kids. The students themselves just stared at me with wide eyes, apparently not understanding what I was saying.

Finally I got the boys attention. I could tell he was weirded out by my display, but I had no choice. At last he said he had left the keys on the table and hurried away.

I went back and carefully went through everything on the table. Someone had put them in the pencil box and closed the lid so I didn't see them.

I would not be surprised if a parent wrote down my license plate number and reported me to the police. I can just imagine the headline: "Seminary Teacher Arrested for Stalking Students."

That's one way to make a difference in their lives.
