The primary kids are singing "I Often Go Walking" today in Sacrament meeting. I am somewhat concerned about this. I know they can do it. But I am afraid they won't sing. I remember being in primary and thinking, "I didn't volunteer for this. I don't want to sing in front of everyone in the chapel. Especially since it seems like I'm the ONLY one who stands up there and actually SINGS." And it's true. I have found that, since my post-primary days, I think the funnest thing to do is to mouth the words like a clown, using EVERY muscle above my shoulders, to animate to the children how to sing. Some kids can't take their eyes off me. Some kids giggle. Some kids stare and sortof move their mouths a little bit, unsure of what they are watching, exactly.
Today I am standing there out of DUTY, though. Not just for fun. Weird. I don't know what to expect. I'm sure all the moms are going to be all happy, though. Right?
