Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam

Colin started Sunbeams on Sunday. The last few weeks his nursery class has been coming in to Primary for singing time to get them used to being with the bigger kids. They were quite the energetic group! We had only 5 kids on Sunday in his class and 4 of them could not stay in their seats for anything. Finally one of their teachers went to the nursery, grabbed some goldfish crackers and got them to sit and eat. Colin was a handful but he is also a pretty good listener so by the end he was sitting pretty well. After church, when we got home Colin was walking in the door singing the Sunbeam song and then when I asked how he liked his new class he said, "I had a good Sunbeam class." I did feel a little badly for Trevor, though. His teachers let us know through e-mail on SATURDAY they had moved out of the ward early. So who knows when we'll get teacher for him....we got five new teachers just to start the year and now we need one more....oh the joys of being the Primary President! All in all it was a fun Sunday that kept me busy. We are learning a new song though and I love it! The kids were learning it so well and it sounded great. It's called "The Family is of God" (go here to listen to it). I can't wait until they have the whole thing learned. There are such great songs this year I think the program in September will be a big success just from the music.

That is such a cute picture of Trevor and Colin. It is hard to believe that Colin is a Sunbeam already. I bet this Sunday was busy for you and it is always a challenge filling all those positions in primary.

Wow, I didn't know that you were the Primary Pres.!! That is cool! I am the Primary Chorister! I am stressed out with all the songs we have to learn this year!!! They are very good songs though. I need to see what you guys do for music time... get some new ideas! We have 15 sunbeams this year! My daughter is one of them! It is going to be a LONG year!
