We went to another ward today

...to see our grandgirls in their Primary Program.

I want to tell you 2 of my favorite parts.
The first one:
A sweet 7 year old girl from Cami's class walked up to the microphone holding little Cami's hand,
and then proceeded to tell the congregation what an example Cami was to her  
of friendliness, love, and joy.
Then Cami's sister Elora came up to the microphone too, and coaxed Cami into saying, "Hi."

I was in awe, and in tears.

Then, or maybe it was before....a little girl, Taya, who is about 5, I think,
got up to the microphone to do her part but instead she froze with tears streaming down her face.
She just couldn't do it. So the Bishop's wife who was nearby, started crying too,
and said Taya's part for her....but she could hardly get the words out through her own tears.
Sweet empathy tears, for this woman to cry right along with this frightened little girl.

A special day. It always is.

Heading off to class.
Cami is often stopped by people along the way who want to touch her or hold her hand for a bit. 


 It looks like Elora is dancing here but she's not. Just trying to get back Cami's hand.

Violet slept through most of the program, so I peeked in on her after she got to the nursery
Those little pink boots of hers put a smile on my face!

Violet's teacher said she's always shy for the first minute or so, and then after that, loves it there.


I want to keep my eye on this wind map 
over the next couple of days, so I'm putting it right here.

And that's just what it looks like, too.

Primary programs are always the best sacrament meeting of the year for me. When I was in the stake primary, we got to go around the stake to see them all...it was my favorite time of year. I need to post about my girls program, but I have forgotten how to post pictures on my blog and can't figure it out.

What a wonderful experience. I think Taya is me. I used to do that all the time. I love Elora's outfit.

I love the Primary programs because of the tender moments and the moments that bring a little laughter. Your little girls just keep getting more beautiful!!
