New Calling Pt. 2

So it's a little later than 12 PM. Thanks for waiting! 
As you read in my last post, Adam and I got a new calling in church this past week!
And we are....(drum roll, please)......
Primary Teachers!!!! 
If you don't know what Primary is, I found a definition on that might help explain it better.
Primary is:
The organization of the Church for children from ages three to twelve. Beginning at three years of age, children receive two hours of religious instruction each Sunday. One hour is spent with a teacher who provides a lesson for an age-specific group, and a second hour is spent in a combined group of children in instruction and singing.

We will be teaching 5 year olds! 
I am so super excited and nervous all at the same time. 
It will be a good chance for me to learn but I am not sure I am going to be great at teaching.  We'll see I guess.
Today was our first lesson and it was a little rocky but now we have some better ideas on how to be more successful at it.
