No, I don't mean a literal sunbeam!
When children are 3, they enter the children's Sunday School program, which we call Primary. The first year of the program their class is called "Sunbeams." One of the songs they sing is "Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam"- which is one of Audra's favorite songs. (Her all-time favorite is "I Am A Child of God"- that one has always been her favorite.)
Anyway, it is a pretty exciting time for kids to enter primary. Audra's teacher came over yesterday and brought Audra a present (a Sunbeam t-shirt that she made). We have been talking up primary all week in the hopes she would be excited instead of scared. I've been praying that she would be excited for it- and she was. And, apparently she did great! Her teacher said she was the star student! Not that that means anything, because it doesn't, but I am really glad that she enjoyed her new primary class! No more nursery for her!
