We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

First Day in Sunbeams!! Vista 5th Ward

Lukas was beyond enthusiastic to finally get to go to Sunbeams! At the end of church, he had plenty to tell. How was Sunbeams! "Gut, aber die haben kein Essen da!" (Good, but they have no food there!) And he told us about "the big classroom" where they get to put fuzzy balls in the jar, and sing, and look at themselves in the mirror (I am a Child of God lesson). And how some kids got a piece of candy (for their birthday), but how (sudden frowny pouty face on the verge of tears) he didn't get one! We explained that when his birthday comes in April, that he will get a special candy too, and that because today was the first day of Sunbeams, we would be celebrating at home!! His smile reappeared and he showed me his paper from his teacher that he colored, and the stickers on his hand that he earned.  And you know a little tender mercy that's happened? The new sunbeam teachers are Brother and Sister Fullerton, who are in their 50s with teenagers, and she speaks German! And Becca, the primary president didn't even know that when she requested them!! How cool is that?! It was a big day, and our little boy was quite proud to be a Sunbeam in the big room. He sits so reverently in there, walking in with arms folded on Sundays. AhhH! I can't believe how big and grown up he is now!!! Needless to say, he was absolutely exhausted when the afternoon came, and thanks to a new 9am church time, naps on Sunday are back!!
