Fun Times in Primary!

Our Primary program is over! (insert a big sigh of relief here!) The children did a wonderful job - apparently most of them took our repeated counsel (commands?) to heart and really memorized their parts. Miss Maya was #1 on the program and had her part down - -she started it off in grand style. The spirit was so strong, which meant, of course, that when I had to wind it all up with a Primary president-ish speech, I got all choked up. No one was surprised in the least.

After sacrament meeting was over, we had our regular Sharing Time but planned to spotlight each of the teachers. We had begged some crowns from Burger King and made a 'throne' with chairs piled up and collected information about each one. In turn, they each came up, sat on the throne, were crowned, and then we learned about them and sang their favorite Primary song. It went perfectly with the monthly theme of gratitude -- because I am so grateful for them.

I love the privilege I have of spending my time thinking about, praying for and loving the children and Primary workers in our ward. It doesn't get better than that. I think that if Jesus were to visit our ward, he'd probably be found in Primary.

Jan- I'm sure you're so relieved to have it done! It's so nice to have all of that hard work pay off. I wish we were in your ward so Addie could benefit from your primary perfection come January!

I 100% agree...the program was great, and Primary is the best! Now it's over and you can enjoy a nice Thanksgiving with your fam.

You forgot to mention Maya starting the show by eating the microphone! That was the funniest cutest thing ever; Ryan said he could hardly contain himself :o)

Love the Primary Program! Ours turned out great. I wish I was in your primary. I would have loved the whole crown bit. Glad your program turned out well. How could it not with you in charge?:)

let's hear it for the Primary Program! I love how sweet and earnest the children are. And your idea to "crown" the teachers with appreciation is something I totally want to copy.

I know how much work goes into a Primary Program and I can imagine your relief! It is such a spiritual meeting, though, even though it is a bit nutty. The children are just so awesome. They are lucky to have you in charge!

Yay, Jan!! What a fun way to honor the teachers. I wish we had thought to do something like that. You are so awesome, though, and definitely think of everyone. I would love to be in your primary!
