Our Handsome Little Sunbeam


Jesus wants me for a sunbeam, To shine for Him each day;
In every way try to please Him, At home, at school, at play.
A sunbeam, a sunbeam, Jesus wants me for a sunbeam
A sunbeam, a sunbeam, I'll be a sunbeam for Him.

^^I snuck a peek through the Sunday school window and this is the look Jed gave me.  Classic.^^

A new year means that Jed has officially graduated from nursery.  Hip, hip, hooray!  At age three--going on four this year--he is considered old enough to sit on the very front row in primary.  He also gets to go to his very own classroom with the other kids his age for a {brief} lesson.  (Bless his teacher!)  In short, this means no more toys during church. 

I was a little nervous on Sunday about how Jed would react to this big change.  We're talking about my child who has carried a toy in each hand (or pocket) since he could grasp!  And just like all little kids, he's a creature of habit and change feels scary.

But... he seemed to adapt quite well.  I mean, look at him.  He's beaming already! 

I'm sure proud of my handsome little Sunbeam.

  2. Sweet boy! Cullen is still too nervous to go to kid's mass on his own but we won't let him bring toys anymore either. Maybe I should show him how much fun Jed is having in his own classroom!

  4. Okay, did you freak out a little taking him for his first time?? It felt so weird walking Hadley in and then leaving her there in the Primary room. How are these kids old enough for this?
