As part of our children's study of the birds and the bees, we have been reading a very entertaining book about Mr. and Mrs. Hormone, complete with hilarious cartoon drawings of the mischievous hormone couple mixing toxic potions that make girls moody and boys pimply. The kids love the story line about the Hormones and how they interfere without permission in all areas of life.
Last night we were reading a story for worship about the life of Ellen White's family. Talking about her son Willie, we read, "Willie White was in charge of all the church in Australia in those years. He was very busy but very lonely without a wife. But one day, he met a lovely young woman named Ethel May Lacey and before long, they fell in love."
"Do you know why they fell in yuv?" Skyler interrupted.
"Why?" I asked.
He burst into giggles. "Mr. and Mrs. Hormone!"
