Kate' First Talk...

Or should I say Justin's? It is still hard to believe that Kate is a sunbeam now. But sure enough just shy of being two months out of the gate, she gets an assignment to talk in Primary. We practiced for a week, not lying! A week because if she is anything like her momma, she was sure to cry through the entire talk and have her dad end up giving the talk. We practiced and practiced and performed it for Grandma, Dad and Zach. She even got to the point where she had some of it memorized. But of course in the end, her name was called to give the talk, and just with the call of her name she broke down in tears. She wouldn't even hold up the props. Justin ended up giving the talk. Maybe next time, things will be different. But then again, if she is like me, she won't dare give a talk until she turns 16! Why is giving a talk so scary?

Here she is all gussied up, and ready to give her talk a go. I sent her off to church(I had to stay home with Zach, who had a case of the Stomach flu), with high hopes that all would go well. Well it didn't but get this...later that day, 2 hours after she had been home from church, Justin asked her that if mommy had been there to help her, would she have given her talk? She said yes. Great! But then again, she talks a big talk. Just like when I know she has been into something she shouldn't be and I ask her if she has done it?...She blames her baby.

Oh my gosh, she's a Sunbeam, too?? Our ward doesn't assign talks, scriptures or prayers to the Sunbeams (all 3 of them), which is kind of a shame. I think Owen would love it...until he had to get up there, of course. Good job trying anyway, Kate!! We miss you--and I have a feeling she and O-man would be good buddies these days.

Oh, but how cute that she practiced it at least! And OF COURSE she would have been fine with Mommy there...how funny! I'm just impressed that she can talk well enough to give a talk. Maddox is a sunbeam, and his entire vocabulary consists of Star Wars characters. It would make a pretty funny talk. I wish you guys were still here so we could see grown up Kate. She is seriously getting too big, and she's so beautiful!
