Ann Farabee: Summer homework?
Summertime…. and the living is easy. Unless your child has SUMMER HOMEWORK! During that last week of school, while students are tremendously excited about completing the school year and beginning the lazy hazy days of summer – a teacher often lovingly hands them their summer homework.
But…for those who were given no summer homework, here you go:

A: Go 4th and multiply.
Q: What time of day was Adam created?
A: A little before Eve.
Q: Does Jesus want us to grow a garden?
A: Yes. He said, “Lettuce pray,” and “Peas be with you.”

A: No, Jesus didn’t like division.
He said that if a house is divided, it cannot stand. (Mark 3:25)
