ok, new group, new rules. after a couple years of occasional “overheard at my 6th grade guys small group” and “overheard at my 7th grade guys small group” posts, i was partway into a fantastic year of “overheard at my 8th grade guys small group” posts last year when the guys asked me to stop. but i ran it past my new 7th grade guys, and they (predictably) loved it.
it’s a smaller group, and a few of them are wonderfully quiet. so the quantity isn’t large. but: some great stuff…
7th grade guy: I’m a white girl; I need my phone!
me (it was the first week, so i was getting to know them): Do you have any pets?
7th grade guy: I own two parents.
me: Do you have any pets?
different 7th grade guy: We had a fish, but it got stolen.
me: I’m older than most of your dads.
7th grade guy: No, you’re like 40 or something.
me: No, I’m 51.
different 7th grade guy: Omigosh, you’re not quite older than my grandma!
(btw: in the small inset photo above, if you look closely, you’ll notice that i dorkily photobombed my own photo.)

Haha….totally. Get these comments on the weekly basis….of course, we could start a series on “Youth Pastor accidentally said…” also. My foot is often in my mouth. Looking forward to more!
Awesome! I asked our guys their fav. hobby or sport this week to get started: One guy said, “I do nothing. I wish I had a job. Get paid the big bucks.” Hah. Middle School kids are hilarious.
