New Callings

Since we have been in this ward, Noel and I have been Primary workers. Noel taught the Valiant 11 class, and I taught the Valiant 9 class. Our Primary is HUGE (about 70 kids that come regularly), and we really enjoyed it because you never knew what was going to happen in Primary. One of our favorite experiences was a little sunbeam was saying the prayer in closing exercises, and she was very grateful. But she would not let her mom help her. "Thank you for Sadie's daddy. Thank you for all of the candy that I got for Halloween. Thank you for my birthday. Thank you for my pink tutu." And it went on. Let's just say that this prayer rivaled General Conference prayers in length. It was awesome! I laughed a good while after that prayer.
Anyway...about a month or two ago, Noel got a new calling. He is now the ward clerk. He is enjoying it. He likes having keys to the different rooms in the building. It makes him feel special.:) I think he misses the fun of Primary, though. And I got a new calling on Sunday. I get to stay in Primary, just now I'm the first counselor in the primary presidency. I'm really excited about it. The other ladies in the presidency are great! It will be a challenge with that many children in the ward, but I'm really looking forward to it. It should be tons of fun!
