Today was our ward's Primary program. This has always been my favorite sacrament meeting--even when I didn't have the cutest kids in the choir seats ;D Today I was impressed by sweeties...
Alec was nearly a head taller than the other nursery kids. He only stuck his tongue out at us once and sang "I Am a Child of God" with great fervor...at least the chorus of the song.
Kenna had memorized her part on her own. I give up on making my kids memorize their parts as soon as they can read. Most children can't resist taking a peek at the back-up script no matter how practiced they are so why bother? She sung her heart out and appeared to know the words to all the songs despite her contrary insistence during last week's Family Home Evening.
Todd inserted expression into his bulky narrator role, sang well, and even smiled once or twice. I was proud of him for swallowing his frustration and for doing what we ended up bribing him to do. (Insert eye roll here.) He turns 12 in NINE days and has been complaining that he would not have had to be in this program had he been born just a little earlier. (Yes, I reminded him that he was past his due date so he had no one to blame but himself!)
