Jesus wants me for a sunbeam (teacher)!

I was sustained today as a sunbeam teacher at my church! I teach the 3 going on 4 year olds. They have to be the cutest kids ever! I have 3 boys (Keaton, Carter & Zach) and one girl (Eliza). I thought I would start a post on the funny things they do and say.

This week wasn't too eventful. I only had the 3 boys today. I told them a story about a boy that wanted to grow up to be a missionary and I asked them all what they wanted to be when they grew up. Keaton said he wanted to be a "fire truck boy", Zach wanted to be a "peace man" (I think he meant police man) and Carter wants to be a farmer that drives. I asked them if they wanted to be missionaries too and Carter said no just a farmer. I gave them pictures of a missionary to color and Carter turned his into a pirate with a sword. So far i've learned that they love going outside, bubbles, and "mother may I?"....until next week....

I can tell you're going to be perfect for those kids! We're so excited to have you, by the way!

That's awesome! I love that you're recording the things the kids say, because they come up with the funniest stuff sometimes!
Last year my husband and I taught the 5 and 6 year olds and one Sunday we had our lesson on obedience. We asked each child to come up and tell us one way that they are obedient (like, "I say my prayers" or "I'm nice to my sister.") One boy came up and said, "I'm obedient because my mom tells me to do my chores ten times, and then I obey." I laughed all week over that one.
Have fun Amber!
