Today I was giving spelling tests to a few kids at the back table. I gave them a bonus word- queen, and used the sentence: My brother living in London hopes to meet the queen. This is the conversation that followed:
Girl 1 asks, "Why is your brother in England?"
Me "He is on a mission."
Girl 2 says, "Oh my brother is on his mission in Chile and he is learning Spanish and baptizing a lot of people."
Boy 1 "Oh Mrs. Barber, I am so excited to go do Baptisms for the dead!
Boy 2 sadly says "Mrs. Barber, I'm not baptized."
Me "Oh that's ok, you don't have to be baptized."
Boy 3 turns to Boy 2 and says "Oh don't worry, that's what Baptism for the dead is for!"
Girl 1 "Mrs. Barber, are you baptized?"
Me "Go back to your seats!"
