From L-R Bruce, Kathy, Kennedy, Mom, MacKenzie, Manuel, Grayson, Katelyn on me & Justin.
Now for those of you who don't know, the Primary Program it's where the children ages 3-11 perform a 30-40 minute presentation instead of your regular "Sunday sermon" if you will. It is always entertaining and usually funny. This morning I was able to appreciate it as a parent.
As the program started the children were singing and all I could see was the back of Kennedy's head. Nice. The chorus began and she whipped around to sing all the words like a champ. That's my girl. Second verse... cat stretching for a few minutes until the chorus again where she starts singin' like a pro. Good job. (Insert proud Grandparents, Aunt Katelyn and mom)
Then she has her speaking part, "I lived with Heavenly Father before I came to earth". Said through her hand up to her mouth and her head turned to the side. My shy little girl. Aww. Cute.
Another song and they sit down. THEN... what is she asking her teacher? I see their little conversation and it ends as Kennedy walks down off the stage and is now sitting on my lap. Uh.
M: The program's not over, don't you want to finish?
K: No. I'm tired of sitting up there.
M: I'll give you some gum if you go back up there.
K: Um, no thanks. I'm done.
Well okay, what do you say to that? I don't know, but she sure was cute while it lasted. Thanks to the grandparents for driving all that way to see your granddaughter in her 5 minute performance. Next year is sure to be a crowd pleaser with MacKenzie though. She'd've sat up there today if we let her.
