It took all I had today to refrain from scribbling notes during singing time for this blog. Before this afternoon, I had only taught the CTR 8 Class in Senior Primary. Today, however, I received an initiation into the world of CTR 5 which also gave me a good view of the Sunbeams. I kept glancing across the aisle at a friend and I think my look must’ve been something like “are you serious!!?!” A few of the highlights include….
*the primary president’s toddler son almost knocking down the flagpole as he ran pell-mell around the room during opening exercises. *a small sunbeam attempting to blow his nose…about thirty seconds before his teacher had a tissue out for him to blow into. *the same small sunbeam half undressing himself during singing time. *a girl from my ctr 5 class saying “I have got to stop biting my nails.” I look down (incredulously) to find that it is actually her TOENAILS that she is biting!
Though I have yet to receive a calling (Ritchie was called as the 2nd Counselor in the YM Pres. today), it may not be bad to sub for a while longer with the CTR 5 kids-it was great comic relief! I realized there was NO way that I could get all 6 of them to stay quiet and attentive so I just kind of gave up and sang along with the ones who were singing :).
As you may have noted, this was our first Sunday in our new ward and it was a little weird but it’ll be good. I just have to get used to it. We’re in a mini-building, I think they’re called Phase 2. It’s like the one we went to in Arkansas. We have to get there kinda early because there are 31 fewer parking spaces than there are families. We had a ward ice cream social yesterday where we got to meet some new people. I think that everything will feel more familiar once I have a few more names under my belt.
