A little background: The kids have been playing Upwards basketball this winter. At the end of each game the players are awarded a colored star based on how they played.
Me: Betsy, now pick the very best "A" that you wrote today and give yourself a star.
Betsy: I'll give this one a red star for best defense.
As I was combing through the rats in Betsy's hair (which usually produces a red face and lots of tears) she commented:
"This is bad. But can you imagine what it would be like if I were Rapunzel?"
This one takes the prize for the week-
Joseph: Mom, can I have a drink?
Joseph: Who will get me a cup... a new cup of the covenant in somebody's blood?
(And I thought I wasn't listening in church:)
