Proud Mommy

Today C decided to bear his testimony in church.  It was great to see him get up his courage after seeing a few other young primary kids do the same.  As soon as he got done A wanted to go up as well.  I have been holding her off for months by saying she wasn't old enough.  I really think you need to be able to go up on your own and say your own words and not be told what to say.  Usually this isn't until you are about 8 year, I thought.  So when she asked me again today I told her to tell me what she would say.  She shared with me a very nice testimony and so I said she could as long as she could go up on her own and say that all by herself.  (I really didn't think she would).  She moved over to the end of the bench and told our neighbor who was sitting by us that she was going up to bear her testimony.  As soon as the pulpit was free she walked up there with full confidence.  The counselor in the bishopric got the bench ready so we could see her and lowered down the mic and she gave a great little testimony all on her own.  It was really special that she was so brave.  When she got back I asked her if she was scared and she said no.  I'm amazed at her ability to talk with anyone.  She is so friendly and thoughtful of other people.  She likes to make pictures during church and then give them to her friends.  This week she gave it to her friend Baylee who is 11 years old.  Last week she gave a picture to her friend Bro Heath who sat by our family.
Summer is going by really fast.  I'm trying to get some things done for preschool before it starts as well as get the kids school shopping done.  I would like also to get our yard a little more ready as well.  Devin started making some plans together in his head for a homemade play set which I think will be so fun for the kids!  The little trampoline we had been given needed some major repairs so I took it to a tramp repairman and he is working on getting it all the rings stitched on with new material and then he goes around the tramp five times.  We have decided that T. and possibly C is too big to jump on the small tramp.  It's so hard to get old!

It's sad to see that the Summer is almost over. We should get together for another lunch before the kiddos go back and it becomes crazy...whadaya say? I agree with you about the kids being old enough to go up on their own.
