Ripley's Believe It or Not--Primary Champion

My oldest son, many of you may know him he's the one who looks like me, on Sunday for the second time received the "Most Reverent" reward in primary. Yes, my boy who acts like he's been eating Apple Jacks and chocolate soy milk for breakfast. The first time it was for Sacrament meeting and he is now 1 away from a hat trick this week with the award for being the most reverent during the primary hours!!! The first time he got a little pack of face cards for his prize and luckily the second time it was some sort of puzzle chain.
He has done very well in church the last few months...That's MY BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(He also memorized his part for the primary program two weeks ago!!!)

was he somehow abducted by aliens, or maybe accidentally switched with his doppelganger? I can't believe he was THAT reverent! And what's up with the primary giving face cards to a 4 year old?!?

Do you go to a deaf/mute/blind ward? haha. That's great for Maximus, he deserves all the praise and enticements to gambling that he can get.

Wow! Where do you start when responding to such a post? Apple Jacks and chocolate soy milk? A “hat trick” of primary awards? Face cards dolled out as an incentive for primary-aged children to be reverent? That is one action packed post. One of the best. I was getting tired of reading “Dat have Cow Milk?” but it was worth it to get to this one. Nice job kid!

I hope they sang "Follow the Prophet" after they gave him the face cards. It's o.k. Aunty Dub probably condons that one! And we love her. I second the comment on reading the previous post. Although it made me laugh each time I checked it. Thanks for the update. I guess the trick of pouring an extra dose of Benedryl into the soy milk worked, eh?

No...Benedryl has cow's milk in it.

Hey, the face card thing is a great idea. I think it would really work well in elders quorm. We could cut the cards and have high card say the opening prayer and low card say closing. Also, when the instructor starts reading out of the manual and boring everyone we could throw cards our scripture cases under the pew. I think that a good poker game would really buid quorum brotherhood and maybe bring out the less active and prospective elders. what a great idea. FHP
