Bailey's First Talk!


Today Bailey gave a talk in primary at church! It was her first time. She was so dang excited to be asked to do it! She told me how she was going to get to sit on the stand and when she was finished she was going to even get a sticker! I guess she has been paying attention somewhat!
Tony practiced with her probably about 20 times. At first he would whisper in her ear what to say and she would try to say it at the same time as him so you couldn't understand what she was saying. That's the reason for practicing so much! Well, he thought he worked it out, but when giving her talk you could only understand about every fourth word....MMMM..Adam and Eve..MMM...The Earth....MMM...My family etc.. So funny! Nice try Tony~maybe next time! I think she still did a great job and I was so proud of her!
I love how much she enjoys going to church! Now if we can only keep that enthusiasm through her teen years!!

Last week Marshall was supposed to give his first talk in Primary but he WOULD NOT SAY A WORD!!!! I tried getting him to practice but he would just roll around on the floor and say nonsense words instead. He thought he was pretty funny I guess. I'm SO FRUSTRATED!!! I even tried to get him to say it to Grandma and Grandpa last night and he totally refused to talk. I just don't get this child!!! He will talk your ear off if it's something he wants to talk about but when you try to get him to say what YOU want him to say...forget it. Ugh....

How great that they asked her so young! It is such a good experience. I love the littlest primary kids and how sincere they are in their enthusiasm. If all members were like Sunbeams, we would be translated!

I still remember the stick figures Mom drew for me to help me "memorize" my first talk! How fun for Bailey! It's no wonder kids in the church grow up to be so confident and accomplished, when they start out so young!

Good for Bailey! Hadley REQUESTED to speak in Primary and did a bang-up job. So "good" that she refused to practice and ad-libbed to all our pictures. Nice.

Way to go! At least she got up there and did her best! A few weeks back Scott was supposed to give a talk and we had it all ready ... while waiting he shredded it! Yup I was putting the pieces back together so EmmaLece could give it for him!
