We did it!

Today was the Primary program -- really the culmination of the time we've spent this entire past year, studying the theme "I am a Child of God."

Our children were wonderful. Most of them sat on the stand the entire time and were reverent and quiet. The singing was great, probably 95% of the parts were memorized, and despite a few Sunbeam tears [utter fear, I think], it went smoothly and ended right on time.

I was so proud of our children. We had a fun, low-key Sharing Time and had our traditional after-program Rice Krispie Treats. It was a wonderful day -- maybe even autograph-worthy!

Is it just me?...or is it not a Primary Program until one of the Sunbeams cries? I LOVED it!

My dad said it was really great! I'm sad I couldn't be a part of it though with my sunbeams. I miss them.

i love when the Primary program comes around. I cried when they sang A Child's Prayer. And I was pleasantly surprised to see that the ward we went to in California also had a primary program that week. I didn't know any of the kids, but I loved it just as much!

YAY! Congratulations to your Primary! It can be a bit stressful in the weeks leading up to it...but how wonderful that they did so great. And yay for parents who help with memorizing!! :)
I agree, is it a program until a Sunbeam has a meltdown? lol. The Pres. daughter absolutely freaked out and screamed loudly in protest of going up. lol. It was cute, though. Poor thing. :)

We just did ours last week, and it was great--it's always great when you get a bunch of kids up there, and when they do something unpredictable, it's that much more enjoyable. Still, nice to be done!
