No pics...just a proud Mommy moment!!

So today was fast Sunday at church...and ALL week long, Klous has been bugging me that he wanted to "give a talk" in church this week. I didn't know where he got it from...or why he was talking about it...or what I was going to do about it...but then today we figured it out. He won't go to nursery because he's scared or something...and he's not in primary so he can't give a talk there. Then we were in sacrament meeting, and it hit him and I at the same time!! When the testimonies started, he looked at me with sad-puppy dog eyes and said..."Mommy, I want to give a talk..." and then just kinda pouted because we weren't rushing to the front. So after a few testimonies and watching him be sad...I leaned over to Ryan and said...you should bring him up there and help him give a "talk"and bear his testimony. So Ryan did...he brought him up there (so I wouldn't have to) and Klous was so cute. Of course had to yell in the microphone at first, but then with help from Daddy gave his own little testimony. So clear and proud of himself...then Ryan did his. It was cute...just went something like this..."I'd like to bear my testimony...I know this church is true...I love my family...I like to read the scriptures...in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen." So so cute...brought tears to Mommy's eyes...then Ryan did his and made me cry more. Man I'm a lucky girl and really do have lots to be grateful for!! Especially Klous' example...I love that kid!!!
