Jude was assigned the talk in Primary a few weeks back. Whenever he is given an assignment he straight up refuses to do it. This time however, I told him about it and how he could write his own talk and he was so excited about it. The topic was pray - praying with your family so I quizzed him about prayer: When he prays, why, what happens, and how it makes him feel, etc. This is the talk we came up with the Jude literally made up himself. It was the cutest thing:
In my family we pray together before we eat, before I go to bed, and at church.
We also say prayers when we need help.
I said a prayer once when I was scared of the dark.
Heavenly Father helped me to not feel sacred by sending the Holy Ghost to comfort me.
I like to say prayers with my family because it makes me feel happy to talk to my Heavenly Father.
We practiced this talk so much that he memorized it. We said it for my parents and for some friends and he was so excited. Then on Saturday we took the picture above of us praying and sent it to one hour photo. On Sunday we held up the picture and proceeded to start Jude's talk when he refused. He was already grumpy from falling in the hallway so there was no way we were going to convince him.
So, I said the talk for him very awkwardly - since I was flustered and embarrassed from Jude throwing a fit in front of the entire primary. And that was that. Haha. I am still so proud of him for writing his talk and practicing it so well though and I know that 3 year olds can hardly be expected to not be scared in front of the whole primary..P.S. Maxwell loves wearing hats now so that's what is so fun for us about the other pictures - they were taken the same morning as the prayer picture so I included them.
