Jesus wants me for a sunBEAM!

Marcus and I have been called to be the sunbeam teachers in our ward. The kids are super cute and so funny. Sometimes they say the funniest things so I've decided to record some of them on my blog. (I'll just use the first initial of the kids' name).

Marcus: Does anyone know any stories of Jesus?
L: I know the story of the Misty Island Rail.
Marcus: Can you tell us that story?
L: Well Thomas the Train gets stuck...
Marcus: I don't think that's a story about Jesus.
C: I want to hear the story of the misty island rail.

Most of the time, they just say cute little things to us. And they have a domino effect on each other. One kid says they're hungry and then everyone is hungry. Or one kid needs to go to the bathroom and then all of them need to go. We also usually get to hear about their siblings. Those little 3-4 year olds sure adore their siblings- it's very cute. Needless to say, we sure are enjoying teaching those little kids!

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Well Johnny certainly is the cutest of them all!

It's already been a week since Halloween! I can't believe how fast time goes. Marcus only has 3 more weeks of classes and then finals and then he's done with his first semester of Law School. Crazy! Next thing you know, John will be leaving on a mission. But thank goodness we still have 19 years before that happens- I still have a hard time leaving him for more than 4 hours...

But back to Halloween! Johnny was a monkey- and a dang cute one!

 Our ward had a trunk or treat on Halloween. It was fun to pass out candy and see all the little kids dressed up. Johnny's too little to go trick-or-treating but he enjoyed watching the kids and got lots of comments about how cute he is from people in the ward! :)
Stay tuned for a post about the adorable little sunbeams Marcus and I now teach!
