Eek

I'm nervous already. It never occurred to me that Booker would speak in church before we did.
What if he picks his nose and eats it while he's talking about Jesus?
What if he sticks his hand down his pants and then his fellow sunbeams follow suit?
What if he incites a riot in the primary room?
Really I shouldn't be asking what happens if, but what happens when. We'll be sure to let you know.
(Also, as someone who has never had a kid in primary before I'm not sure what a primary talk is. I figure 15 minutes of McConkie quotes might be a bit much... ideas?)

Do you have the GAK? The Gospel Art Kit or whatever they call it? For small ones, I feel like a picture and letting them talk about what they know about the picture is good. And keeps the hands busy so they do go...elsewhere.

Why would any primary presidency assign talks to Sunbeams in January? Helloooo, they have all year! Anyway, better Booker than my Tyler who absoluteley wouldn't (ok, and couldn't) talk!

He will do GREAT! I wish I was going to be there to see him...

I have a few primary talk books if you want to copy a little talk for him. It's my way of cheating when my kids have to talk. It'd be a good excuse to meet for lunch or have you guys over to play on the new sky fortress in our backyard...

I don't know how everyone else feels, but I want a video of how this goes down. Got it. A video.

I was in Primary forever. The number one rule is Keep It Short. Seriously short. Like, four sentences for a sunbeam. And go early if you can to help your little guy practice standing at the podium and using the microphone without sucking on it.

And then enjoy. The sunbeam talks are always the best (hilarious).

We use pictures for the little ones. Short and simple. ANd they expect a little nose picking in primary;)

Booker might still be a little young for this, but this is a good site:

"Two minute talks"

At age 3 you can probably get away with "Jesus loves everyone, especially dump truck." Good luck Booker!

The cutest family in our ward has their kid color their own pictures to go with the lesson. They are sweet AND hilarious. I hope it went well! (Sorry about your ski vacation. Bummer!)
