Jesus Wants me for a Sunbeam

I couldn't believe that we had been in our new ward for nearly 2 months and hadn't been given callings yet.

Well, that changed at last night. Back to primary I go! Except this time, teaching Sunbeams! Yikes! As soon as our Bishop said that I had flashes of being in primary in my old ward. One year, there were like 8 sunbeams ( no joke) and that poor teacher. I remember watching her as she struggled to squish 4 wiggly little kids on her lap because they all wanted to sit with her.

All and all though I think it will be fun. The Bishop said that Jimmy had been requested in primary as well, but he couldn't remember for what class so he hasn't been technically called yet. It will be fun for both of us to be in primary together though.

I think it's funny that I keep getting callings that have to do with working with kids. I'm just really not a kid person, I don't know what to do with them. But I guess that is why I keep getting these callings, to help prepare me for the future.

I helped in Nursery once in our old ward once. Not to toot my own horn, but I was a pretty big smash there! By the end of the hour I had kids wanting to play with me and sit in my lap and everything. Jimmy said that experience gave him hope for our future children!

We'll see how this all goes!
