Primary Program

Noel and I have callings in the Primary. He is one of the Valiant 9 teachers, and I am the assistant to the Primary presidency. Just before we moved here, the ward boundaries were re-drawn and a bunch of new families with primary aged kids moved in. So our primary is HUGE...we have about 70 kids that show up regularly. They needed a little more help in the presidency so that is why I am the "assistant." Anyway, today was our Primary program in Sacrament meeting. Imagine 70 kids up on the stand, they did a great job being reverent, but I bet it was humorous all the same. There was one little boy who did not want to be up there, and he started to make a run for it. His teacher had cat-like reflexes and grabbed the back of his shirt to keep him from running off the stage. It was pretty funny. But here is what really got me laughing. We were almost finished with the program--honestly one more song to go. Then this 5 year old boy turns to his teacher (same teacher mentioned above) and says, "I am through with this!" I laughed a little and said, "Hey...we are almost finished." Then he said, "No. Really, I am just THROUGH with this!" His teacher and I busted up laughing. It was hilarious. Don't you just wish that you could get away with saying, "I am just THROUGH with this!" :)

Kids are sooo cute and they definitely say some cute things that we, as adults, could never say...at least we couldn't say them and still have friends. How is the book coming?

haha...We have our program next week but it will be funny for a whole other reason.. We don't have many kids and we probably will only hear a few kids singing at the top of their lungs. Good times.
