Spotlights

Our ward primary decided to do spotlights this year. They had a form for all the parents to fill out for each of their children. I filled out a lot of it but some of the questions I asked the boys. They keep changing their favorite colors and favorite school subjects and things like that. So as I was asking them questions and filling out the form it tickled me some of the answers they gave me. For example, one question was; What is the child's favorite scripture story? I thought I knew Koen's but I wanted to ask anyway. I was right and it was the Joseph Smith story. Eades said he loved the story about Nephi leaving Jerusalem with his family. Dougan said his favorite was about the Holy Ghost. I wasn't sure what he was talking about so I gave him some examples of stories and we decided on Noah's ark. It was just fun getting to hear their answers. Another was favorite song. Koen decided on Smooth Criminal. He wanted Dirty Diana, but I didn't think that would be appropriate. Smooth Criminal isn't much better. I didn't even know Koen knew Dirty Diana. Eades chose Beat It, and Dougan of course was Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Towards the end it asked what Christlike attributes they have. I got to write about things that I see that maybe others haven't noticed. It also struck me again how different my children are. The last question was anything that I thought they should know that they might not know already. I was filling Koen's in first so when I got to this question my first thought was his webbed toes. Then I thought how that might embarrass him because then everybody would want to see his toes and he doesn't really like a lot of attention. So I decided not to write that down. I'll let him reveal that secret on his own. But yes, it was fun getting to brag on my kids a little and I hope they aren't too embarrassed with what I wrote for them.

Just kidding. I'm not grossed out by it. Is this something he gets from Tony's side?
