giggle fits...

this morning in prayer time, we go around the room and the kids can pray or say pass. it can take quite awhile on days that everyone would like to pray...which is great. but there was this boy today could not contain his laughter. he sits front and center of the class, no one next to him, no one in front of him. so he really was laughing to himself. he'd burst out with a "phhhh..." and then pull it together and look at me. i was attempting to give him "the look" but it didn't seem to help him pull it together. then he'd close his eyes and 30 seconds later, another "phhh!" then look at me. this probably happened 5 times. finally we were done praying and i sent them all out to get ready for swimming and i say to this kid, "what was that? why were you laughing?" he starts laughing and says, "there was just something funny that happened yesterday and i couldn't stop thinking about it and it was making me laugh."

i had to laugh.
