Just you're average Martin Family week: school, homework, school, homework, repeat. It did snow and melt a couple of times. And we bought a new table (yeah! an exciting, planned for expense) and four new tires (grrr! an unexpected, there-goes-Christmas expense). The biggest and best thing to happen was our church's Primary (Children's) Program. Everyone sang well and Enoch looked cool.
Because I was in charge of taking pictures for the primary after the program, I do have a few pictures...
Here is Emma. She gave a talk on having a Gospel Sharing Home and played the bells for the the song "If the Savior Stood Beside Me" with her class.
Taran spoke about tithing and the blessings it brings. He also sang "When Jesus Christ was Baptized" with his class.
Please note the gapped tooth smile. He lost another tooth last week.
Enoch sat in his seat for a good half of the program! He insisted on wearing the glasses he found tucked away in his closet.
As a family we sang the song "Home."
At one point I realized we weren't singing as loudly as we ought to so I slightly nipped Emma to encourage her. She turned around and hissed "You pinched me!"
Calvin squirmed while David held him in place.
Taran was SO animated that the congregaton couldn't help but laugh.
And Enoch hid behind the podium.
Yep, "Home is where the heart is, where warmth and love abound. Home is where warm, circling arms go all the way around."
After church there was a big cake to celebrate a job well done and our car had a flat tire. (Last week when we came home from church we had to have the door handle drilled off because we were locked out. The Sabbath is becoming very costly.) After David came back from the auto shop, we ate a delicious Sunday dinner and played the game Bird's of America Memory.
Have a great week!
He won't take 'em off.
