That's what I really wanted to say to the Sunscreams, but of course we stuck to several rounds of the original version, plus turbo-charged renditions of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" ("Faster! Faster!"). They were exceptionally energetic due to the (perhaps unwise) decision to distribute little candies during the plenary session.

Today is President's Day, and we have the day off. The Clinton Library was open for free admission today, so MoBob and I hiked down this morning to take advantage. For some reason Bill is MB's favorite president, and MB is furthered endeared by the display of various gifts from Morocco and a photo of the Clintons with the King during the state visit in 2000. Hillary also visited MB's home town of Ouarzazate in 1999.

(A brief digression: when I asked one of my Moroccan colleagues if the Lewinsky scandal was covered in the Moroccan media, she said, "Oh yes! Every detail!" I was a little skeptical and asked her, "Even about the oral sex?" She replied, "Yes! They said they talked on the phone a lot!")

Talked on the phone . . . heh heh.

As for the Sunscreams, you could try something I did on HSK&T when I was in primary (though they might be too young still): Super-Slo-Mo. I told the kids to pretend they were swimming through molasses. Lots of fun.

I suppose I could've refused this calling at church but then I might've gotten something weirder or more time-consuming...also, one of the parents pointed out that the kids don't associate us with punishment!

heh, I'd have liked to have seen that class of sunscreams! I wonder what you could slip in to those songs before you started getting irate feedback from the parents?

It's too bad snacks and drinks are forbidden, otherwise I'd slip in a little "Draught of Peace."
