Today I got released as the CTR 7 teacher and called to be the Laurel Advisor. In Primary any lesson in which I let my class act out a story as I told it, or that involved coloring in any way, was a total success. My little class of four girls was full of hugs and sweetness and said the cutest things. Almost every week I'd have a funny little story to tell Spencer on our walk home from church. So you can imagine how I feel; I'm excited, but a bit intimidated by my new responsibilities.
My leaders in YW were just the best and I still keep in touch with many of them. They have definitely set a high standard! I really hope I can have the same kind of positive influence on the lives of the girls in my class. I also wish I had kept more of the handouts and lesson ideas from when I was in young women's because I'm at a total loss. Will I have to bring baked goods to church every week for a lesson to be good, or make cutely crafted scrapbooky bookmarks as handouts?
Before I forget, I need to write down something cute that happened last week in my primary class. I was humming a song and the girls were trying to guess what it was. "Oh! I know!" one exclaimed. "Give Said the Little Man!" I almost laughed out loud. I was humming Give Said the Little Stream. But I'm sure my sweet little student has wondered for some time why the grass grew greener everywhere the little man went.
