Welcome to his world

I don't know where he got it from, but Sam has been referring a lot lately to things in "his world". I think it's a distinction between real life and books/movies/etc. That's the best I can figure, but it sure is cute. For example, several weeks ago we were leaving a store just after a brief rainstorm. He immediately stopped and seemed shocked. He pointed to the sky and said, "Look, I didn't know there are rainbows in MY world!!" And he was thrilled with the discovery! Oh, to be four again!

Another funny Sam-ism, while I'm on the subject...

Saturday we were driving somewhere as a family and Joe was teasing Sam about some silly little thing. Sam let out a little exasperated sigh and said, "Dad, you drive me nuts!" Hmmm, wonder where he's heard that before?!

Okay, and one other bragging note on Sam. Last sunday he completed his first talk in primary. I was so proud of him! He's been assigned scripture or prayer several times but has always frozen once he gets up to the microphone. Once, he even had the entire scripture memorized, word for word but still, got too scared/nervous to deliver. But, not this time! With his daddy by his side he only hesitated slightly and then he repeated the whole thing loud and clear for all to hear. He's getting to be so grown up!

That's so fun! Trey used to be the same way. Ooh, which reminds me he has a talk this week, too. Thanks! Hope all is well. Hey, where are the preggo pics?
