Our favorite line up!

My friend took me up on the offer to have all three of our children in Primary help out when needed and, boy, did I love walking in and seeing Potatoes, Joo-Jee and Shoo-Shee all lined up in the front of the room! I was so proud to see each one step up to give the prayer, scripture or talk.

Because of COVID shutdowns, Shoo-Shee had never given a talk in Primary and she was so excited! She wanted to fly solo and fancy free, but I knew that would quickly drift into a series of adorable, but doctrinely unsound (and likely undecipherable) declarations (along with beautifully graceful and sweeping hand gestures).

After some firm discussion, we agreed that she could pick four pictures of Jesus and tell her audience something about each one. We practiced and she loved it. She could speak without being prompted (which she loved!). And she kept her comments on topic and focused on the Savior (which I loved!).

In the end, it was a great experience for us all and we were so grateful!
