Laughing at Myself...!

Well, again, singing time was lots of fun. I mean   "!"   It was great! The Echo game was captivating and held their attention, and the 20 minutes flew by. We didn't have enough time to play all the different ways I listed earlier, but I feel confident that both Jr. and Sr. groups have most all the verses close to memorized. We focused mostly on the new verse found in this month's Friend Magazine - lets see if I have it memorized:

Heav'nly Father loves us, wants us to return,
Blesses us with prophets who help us to learn.
President Monson humbly leads our church today,
As we heed his words we'll walk the chosen way.

Yeah! Pretty sure I have it!

BZZZZT! Wha..wha...wha...whaaaaaaaaaaa.......

Rats! Just checked the words and I am not quite there.
  • "AND" wants us to return
  • "HE" blesses us with prophets
  • leads "GOD'S" church today
How more OFF could I have been?! AGH!  LAM! *laughing at myself*  Now you know.

I had such a hard time remembering that second line yesterday. Finally, I explained to the children I was having a real struggle with it, and I told them it would help me a lot if they would, as a group, sing the lines to me, and I would echo them back. It worked! They really are learning it, even faster than I am. I was so proud of them. 

 I'll be away from my home ward this coming Sunday, the last week in March. My grandparents 70th Wedding Anniversary Party is this Saturday night, and it's a 6 hour drive from home. But I'll be posting more ideas so stay tuned!
