Quietly think to yourself and try to come up with a word quickly that doesn’t have a Q and a U together.

Don’t quit, yet. Keep thinking.

Can’t think of one off the top of your head? That’s because there are only a few words in the Webster Dictionary that have a Q in them, but not a U.

As the kindergarten classes come to the end of the school year,  they have been learning the letters of the alphabet. The last letter was Q, so the preschool teachers decided to have a wedding for both of the letters, binding them together for life.

Two puppets, dressed as bride and groom. were walked down the aisle by Mr. Dewayne Lawson and Mrs. Kelly Causey.

Rev. Joe McDaniel officiated the ceremony, and the preschool faculty acted as bridesmaids and servers for the wedding.

With all of the girls dressed as queens, and all of the boys dressed as quarterback it was quite the event.

As the ceremony came to a close, the bride and groom entered their “just married” golf cart and rode away to Quebec to live quaintly ever after.

They plan to have three children and name them Quintez, Quinn, and Quincy. They predict they will be quiet and will be stars in the game, Quidditch.
