We had our annual Primary Presentation this past Sunday, meaning that the children in our church present the Sunday service through scriptures, music, and talks they wrote themselves. Always a sweet experience... and yes, funny too. Zach read a scripture and did very well all on his own. There were a lot of pauses where he tried to find his place, because he had to look up at the congregation to say every word and phrase, and his tongue stuck out of the corner of his mouth the whole time... but he pulled it off without major incident. And I'll call that a success.
The theme this year was "I Am a Child of God", so I created a silhouette for each child to take home, talking about how each profile was unique, even though it's just a basic outline. It's supposed to remind them that they are each a beloved child of a Heavenly Father who has a plan for each of our lives. I don't know that they'll ever think of that when they see their silhouette, but they did love receiving theirs.
Funny thing... The three of us were making donuts last week, and there turned out to be a crazy lot of them. Mike says, "Now why are we making this many?" And I replied, "Apparently we're a family of gluttons." And Zach quickly and seriously pipes up, "No, we're not! We're a family of Heavenly Father!" Yup.
In other news... some of you have requested pictures of little Rose. Yes... another friend, another baby. Bring 'em on. Especially if they're all as sweet as this one.
