So Saturday is the day we get to move!! Yay! Well except we only get to move into the garage because closing is taking FOREVER. We are "supposed" to close on Friday (which could all change quickly) but then we have to wait until Monday for it to record and then the house is OURS and we can actually live there. The builder is awesome for letting us move into the garage, it will be much easier for Ryan to move us into the house. We are so excited and can't wait for this next chapter of our lives!

Primary Sacrament Program

This past Sunday was our Primary's Sacrament Program. I was so excited because it was Emma's first one as a Sunbeam. We have been working on her part for a few weeks, "I lived with Heavenly Father before I came to earth." It took her about one time saying it to memorize it, so before she would say her part she had to include, "I can do it all by myself!" very proudly with a smile. Well, here comes Sunday and time for the program. The Sunbeam class sat on the front middle row during the passing of the sacrament until they could take the bishopric's place. Ryan and I sat in the row behind them, and wow was Ryan amazed at the wonderfully behaved (NOT) Sunbeam class, including his daughter, haha. There were 4 little Sunbeams and 2 teachers to contain them. It was crazy! One of the girls kept spinning in circles and putting her feet up on the bench with her dress over her head. While one teacher was "helping" her the other was "helping" the little boy who continuosly tried to run up front to the bishop, and climb the wall (later during the first song he tried to jump over the wall....he missed). So needless to say that left my sweet little Emma and her little friend to be as obnoxious as possible :o). I asked Ryan to switch me right at the beginning of Sacrament so I could help with the kids until they went up front (I've seen them in action during Primary, who knows what they would do in Sacrament), but he assured me I needed to stay where I was at because the teachers could handle it and I wasn't in Primary anymore. Well about 10 minutes into Sacrament Ryan was constantly telling Emma to turn around and be quiet, stop laughing, don't poke her, sit down, sit up, you don't need to lay on each other, quit playing with her hair, etc. While I quietly sat there laughing to myself, I noticed Sofie was gone. She had escaped from dad while he was "helping" Emma. Haha! Luckily she stopped when she got to the stairs and turned back around to sit by us. Needless to say, Ryan leaned over and stated, "Holy crap, these kids are CRAZY!" I agreed and said, "told you so :o)." Haha
Okay so fast forward to the Sunbeam parts: The first boy gets up and the teacher whispers his part into his ear, he repeats it in the microphone. Emma is next. The teacher starts to whisper her part in her ear and she turns to scowl at the teacher. Then she turns to the microphone and announces with full attitude, "I can do it myself!" pauses (she had to wait for the laughter to die down), then says her part, "I lived with Heavenly Father before I came to earth" ever so sweetly. I about died. It was sooooo funny! Of course that is Miss Independent Emma.
1 Primary Program down, 11 more to go!
