Primary is...

Pretty good for the most part. We have 7 kids in our class, 2 of which showed up for the first time this Sunday. Most of them are REALLY great kids. They are quiet and only talk when they are called on or when we are all just talking. There is, however, a few that are not so easy to handle. There is only one of our kids, we shall call him "P" that completely drives me crazy. He is very disruptive and he doesn't like to listen. Last week he told me that the lesson was boring. I, in return told him that I would go make a copy of the lesson so that he could do the lesson this week. He didn't like that idea so much. Then during sharing time he, for some unknown reason, stuck his head through the back of his chair. This week he kept hitting his head on the wall. He also loves finishing scriptures for other kids when he thinks they are reading too slowly and he loves telling us totally off the subject things. Needless to say it's lots of fun... or something like that.

Shaun is actually handling our class much better then me. He hasn't once freaked out on the class like me and he hasn't gotten after our hard kid. He has been a great example to me. I actually did a lot better this week. I just tried pretend that "P" wasn't there, doing the things that annoy me that most.

I hope that as the year goes on that things will get a lot better and that I will learn to be more patient. I am pretty sure that is why we have received this calling.

Anyhow.. there is a little update into our lives. I will try and be better about updating this more often. I still need to post about Christmas and New Years. I will try doing that this week. I just started school again, so we will see how things go. =)

I taught the 4, 5, and 6 year olds when I was just barely out of Young Womens. Ugh that was a hard calling. I totally know what you mean about one kid that is crazy. I had one that the instant we got into the classroom he would climb into the window. I don't even know how he did it.

Hang in there!
