Today Elijah gave his first primary talk in church. His topic was on baptism and what he can do to prepare for baptism. I put together a little flip book with pictures in it for him to talk about. All day yesterday when we were practicing he would go off on this random tangents about dying and not wanting to get wet, etc. He wouldn't repeat anything we told him verbatium. It made me a little nervous about what he was going to do today. BUT there was no need to worry. When it came time for his turn he took his time unzipping his scriptures and pulling them out and then he froze up a little when Josh held up the picture for him to talk about. He then ended repeated what Josh dictated to him afterall and adding a little here and there. It made me so proud to see him up there talking in the little microphone while his daddy helped him. I LOVE that kid!
It is so hard to believe how big he is. He is giving talks in church and next week he starts preschool. The time has flown so quickly!
