(O.k., that was lame...but today on Sesame Street they were doing Nursery Rhymes and mine was definitely better than Baby Bear's!)
I admit, I'm a little bit of a hover-er and have been a little apprehensive about Max going to Nursery...so, I had to muster all of my self-restraint to not go and check-up on Max at Nursery...but, on my way to the bathroom (granted it was the long way...) I peeped in and saw Eric sitting with Max, singing, as content as can be!!! Eric just happened to be walking by when Max started crying...but you can imagine my shock when I saw Eric in there!!
Max actually missed his first two weeks in Nursery because we were out of town and in other wards and I couldn't bring myself to take him to his first Nursery experience with anyone other than Sister Ellis...this woman is amazing!
They stay engaged...and all the while they are learning about the gospel...Max came out of Nursery with this for me all about Christ!
I remember really wanting Carli & Chuck to stay in Evanston one weekend and the only obstacle was their Nursery calling...to which I said something along the lines of, just get your back up couple...like it makes a difference (before you send me hate comments- keep in mind that I was just trying to get my brother and sister-in-law to stay because I love them)!
Well, now that I get to witness, firsthand, how impactful a person can be when they choose to magnify their calling...I am humbled and grateful for the wonderful people who give so much of themselves. If Sister Ellis is reading this, you don't know how amazing you are...to turn a situation that I was dreading into something that I look forward to every week! Thank you!
