By the by, did you know Julia can read? I mean, really read? She's been learning words for a while, but she is a full on, confident READER these days. She is reading cereal boxes and street signs and anything she can get her hands on. She read Nate the Great to me the other day. No joke: she's a reader.
So, let's review. She wrote her talk. She drew pictures for her talk. And she read her talk. With minimal help from her parents. I was BURSTING with pride. In full disclosure, Clark did plug in the scripture at the end, but other than that, it was all Julia.
Here we have the pictures, followed by a video of one of our practice runs. First the text:
"When we were in heaven, God had a plan for us so we could come to earth. He thought that would make us happy because he wanted us to go to Earth. Then he made the Earth with water and plants and animals and trees. Then he sent us all to Earth. The prophet Lehi said, "men are that they might have joy." In the name of Jesus Christ, amen."
Picture #1: The brown dots are Heavenly Father and Jesus. We have a yellow sun in the blue sky, and a tree, and some grass at the bottom. I'm pretty sure this is God creating the Earth.
Picture #2: The Earth. Signed by Julia. The tails on her a's get a little crazy.
Picture #3: Julia, on Earth.
