leah had her first day in primary in january - a sunday school class for kids in our church ages 3-11. she's in the sunbeam class. i've thought about this day a lot in the last four years. and my idea of how it would go down has drastically changed in the past year and a half. 

but...there were a lot of people who made sure it would still happen - and continue to work for it each week. so many wonderful people who understand her body doesn't work but truly believe her mind does. people who insist she not sit in nursery with the babies, but come to primary with the other big kids and learn and grow. 

we tried to snap some shots of her on her first day, but didn't have time until after 3 hours of wiggling in church. it was not a successful photo shoot. this was our best. sort of a half smile.
but here are some goodies. 
my favs are the top right and bottom left. 
she's so photogenic, don't you think?
she must get that from her mom.

Leah is the brightest ray of sunshine I've ever been around! She rocks.

Hurray for primary! And hurray for her little friend, Karen! I'm sure they have fun together in primary. You tell Leah I'm sad I'm not in primary there anymore, because it would have been great to see her in there.

I can't believe sweet Leah is a sunbeam! Wish we were still in the ward so I could see her shine!
