The first day of the 2012 fell on a Sunday. And so on that day, Charlie and Olivia had their first day of Primary! In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, children ages 3 thru 11 attend Primary during the last two hours of church. The 3 year old class is called Sunbeams, named from the song "Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam."
I have to admit, I was a little nervous for this first experience in organized education. Surely, mine would be the children dancing around the room while everyone else sat quietly and listened attentively. ;) But they did a fantastic job! No tears. Just laughter, fun, and reverence. The highlights for them? Fruit snacks and crowns. :) The crowns say, "I am a child of God." They are truly royalty.
