The Ghost of Primary Programs Past

Tomorrow is the big day for our little Hawaiian Primary.
And I have to say, the Program is way more fun as the Sunbeam Teacher than it is as the Primary President.

This year I am not worried about stray Book of Mormons being launched during the chorus of Scripture Power.

No Lamaze breathing to help me cope with the Tasmanian Devil twins sitting right in the front row with me.

No worries that half the teachers won't show and the kids will run wild all over the stand, or that we won't know the songs...

Ahhh, what blessed peace!

Here's a little Primary Math:

3 Primary Programs as the PP
+ 1 as a counselor
+ 6 as Secretary
+ 1 (tomorrow) as a teacher
11 primary programs. In my 13+ years of marriage.

I'm happy to not be setting up chairs and microphones and printing last minute name labels and worrying about too many announcements and praying that none of our main speakers get sick. I'm thrilled to be sitting in my little seat, just trying to keep my own little guys happy and, if not reverent, at least quiet.

Happy Primary Day!

Best wishes!!!
Our program is the last Sunday of October.
I've been a grown up a looonnnnnggggg time and I have never been in Primary until now. But I'm in nursery so that doesn't even let me have the privilege of sitting on the stand to wrangle cats.
Again, Good Luck!

So, how did it go?

I just think it's the coolest that you have actual blog documentation of all your primary programs.

Ooh, I think you're on the Fast Track to becoming the next General Primary President! :D I hope it went well! :)

Wow, I'd say you've done your time in Primary! I just got called back in as pianist but had only had a one-year stint before. Admittedly, the highlight of the Primary program was when the kids did screw up. Not in a traumatic way, of course, but everyone loves a good chuckle!

They just gave us a cd of all the primary songs to learn for the program. It's a lot of work getting all that together, but it's really enjoyable for the parents.
