…especially ones where he infiltrates beautiful butterflies or a random dinosaur here and there (I know, a little irreverent but I think God understands).
We have also found that “Dead Donkey” story time works wonders (where whoever stays the quietest laying on the floor for the longest wins…thanks for that idea Sayds!) Best game ever.
So back to the Primary Program where we sat on the front row of the stage with our little friends with nothing in front of us (no little pony wall or podium) to contain the excitement of the day. Right as the program began and the first older child got up to share his talk, one of our little girls stood right up quick-as-a-wink and took a flying, graceful leap right off the front of the stage. It was like it was all in slow motion. Then she ran and bounced back up the stairs and did a little dive under our chairs to come back to sit with us (when there’s not much room on the sides you just improvise by going under things). It was a great introduction to the program which was beautiful BTW. I always love it back home too, but our primary is so big that the kids only get to say a few words in order to give everyone a turn. These kids got to give real live talks from the heart and we loved what we heard of it while trying to keep our kids on the stage for the rest of the time :).
Trying to get a picture our last day of teaching pretty much summed it all up.
