Beware of the Ravens...

Maybe it's just because it's summer, but my kids seem more out of control than normal. I have to repeat myself 5 times instead 3 and then Brynna has developed some teenage 'tude, having to comment with a sassy remark to everything. In my frustration I told them they had better watch out or the ravens would come and pluck out their eyes. Of course they wanted to know what I was talking about so I told them that in Proverbs 30:17 it says, "The eye that mocks a father, that scorns obedience to a mother, will be pecked out by the ravens of the valley, will be eaten by the vultures." Jace and Brynna were not phased but poor Ryleigh was freaked. She continually asks if the "raisins" are coming to get her eyes or if the others are misbehaving if the "raisins" will get their eyes. Of course I reassured her that everyone would be okay but, when those older ones start to act up I let out a "caw caw" and they know what I'm getting at.
