I know you can't see this picture too well, but wait - read first, then smile with delight as you look back!
I have the attention span of a 3 yr old, especially during some periods of church-anyone who says they haven't experienced this sensation is either lying or trying to sell you something, like Living Scripture action figures/videos/etc. My co-teacher Kat and I got reassigned to teach the 3 yr old Sunbeams and there are 8 of them. OH HANNAH. What in the world are we going to do? Well, so far we've laughed so hard we've almost cried, yet the laughing was to keep from crying...hmm. I'll have to re-think this.
Anyway, tomorrow's lesson is about Heavenly Father's Plan for Me - how do you teach the plan of salvation to those little kids? Well, we're going to talk about our spirits in the premortal existence, coming to earth to receive a body, and then returning to our Father in Heaven once more. This lesson is going to involve masking tape on the floor from a set of chairs representing the Premortal Existence, then you'll have to hop off of the chairs (holding a clear, plastic spoon equipt with eyes, a little nose and a big smile!), onto the masking tape, leading to earth (middle of the classroom) where you'll get an outfit to color and put onto your spoon :) then you'll dance around the earth, hop back on the path that God has for you (masking tape on floor as a 'path') and you'll remove the clothes in the process (death), then go to the other side to sit on another bunch of chairs - when the resurrection comes, you'll put your little clothes back onto your spoon and we'll party :)
This post is a little rough, but that's because I'm too excited to explain it all - I got caught up in making these little spoon people and they are so cute! I know, I'm a science nerd that is still a child. And I'm loving it. We're going to sing, play Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes, learn the plan of salvation, and have a marvelous time - hopefully without any crying or "Where's my daddy?" Wish me luck - and the picture is funny because I took it off my computer and just snapped it from where I was sitting-thank heavens for the mac :)
Hope you have a marvelous Sunday - Tyler and I are speaking in Sacrament Meeting as well...this Sunday is going to be wonderful!!!!! (I love teaching the doctrine!)
