We hemmed and hawed about whether or not we should take Lucy.
We always do with things like this.
Because, well, she can be a little bit of a wild card which sometimes takes away attention from the big girls.
But we decided to go for it this time.
We huddled up in the car and refreshed/taught the girls the story line.
When we got to our seats my heart kind of sunk because we had a bird’s eye view…for reals. This picture doesn’t quite do justice to how far away that stage seemed..like a little speck in the distance, which is all fine and grand…
We had seats in two different rows and Lu and I ended up together. We whispered to each other the whole time…she was fascinated and followed right along the whole time. Her vision sure didn’t fail her…she seemed to soak everything in like a little sponge.
A couple days later in church she asked me to help her find the story of Joseph and his brothers in the Bible, so I did.
She held her little book up a few inches from her face and read and read all through sacrament meeting.
When we got home, she plunked down on the couch and kept reading.
A half hour later:
And another half hour later:
Man alive she was in the zone on that thing.
And she was pleased as punch when she wrapped that story up. She told us it was almost the same except that there wasn’t such a big party at the end in the real Bible 🙂
I know she didn’t really “get” it all (which is all good for some parts for now), but Dave and I looked at each other with big smiles.
Our girl is growing up. And learning so much. Sure part of me is sad…and as she grows it makes that IWAN part of me thud in an hollow little part of my heart. But because Lucy is Lucy, we celebrate in victory every little step.
Oh man we love that girl!
