Yesterday my little friends went to Primary for the first time and I was so proud of them! They sat on the front row and were so well behaved and stayed in their seats. They also participated and tried to sing the songs. It was so cute. Even the crazy ones like Londynn (just kidding, Emily!) were amazing. Actually, just so that Emily knows - yesterday Londynn really was awesome. She sat next to me and was very reverent. She even let me know that she needed to go to the bathroom and told me what she needed to do. It was really cute!
Anyway, I only have a few more weeks with these kids and I am going to miss them so much. I know I will still see them around, but that is very different from the one on one interaction. It's been really wonderful to see the changes they have made the past year. Being the nursery leader is the best calling in the church if you do it right! I love it. I would honestly do it forever if it wasn't so isolating.
One thing that I really got out of this is that it is so important to get to know all of the kids in your ward. They need to know that other adults know them and are "watching" them. I am going to try to make a point of knowing the names of as many kids in the ward from now on. And that is my challenge to my readers, too.
