Today though, was a different story. After the Sacrament, the kids all came up to the stand and quickly found their seats. They were all very reverant - even all 12 Sunbeams - for the most part anyway. We had learned on Friday that the M&Ms work miracles so C picked some up yesterday at work. They worked great today too! About 1/2 way through the program, the kids started to get ants in their pants so C pulled out a few candies just before the kids were to go to the podium to say their parts. Then, the other Sunbeam class headed up, did their parts, and then it was our kids' turn. Each one of them got up and said their part just great and headed back. We greeted each one of them with a smile and a hug of excitement and pride. They were so excited that they had done their part. Even little Jackson was all smiles. It was great.
We still had two hours left to manage them, but overall, the day was alright. We ended up having another little girl join our class for the first time so we had 7 kids there today. Just one short. I have a huge fear that they will ask us to take on the other Sunbeams until they can find a teacher. Oh my...I would have to come home and take a Valium if we did that!
C put a brisket in the oven this morning before we left and it smelled really good when we got home. It was nice to be able to eat right when we got home and it tasted great. We spent a little time together while we ate and we watched Mr. Bean's Holiday which we'd DVRed when we had free Cinemax last weekend. It was fun to just laugh. It's a totally lame movie that sometimes is slow in certain parts, but there are some really funny parts too that we just laughed our heads off at. Check it out.
Came in and finally fixed the cutter although I wasted about 4-5 feet of vinyl doing it. Hallelujah though...I can finally cut! Played Excel instructor for Lisa and her friend Rhonda over the phone and via Remote Assistance. That was a hoot.
