Last week for Family Home Evening, we talked about Primary with our three-year-old son. We started out going over our usual Sunday routine, with sacrament meeting followed by nursery. Then we told him what will be different about church next year ("after Christmas," which is a milestone he can better relate to)—going to Sharing Time, singing songs, and going to class. Just talking about things usually helps with transitions for our son, so we will continue to talk about it.
We also tried to get him to sit in a chair for all of Family Home Evening. It only lasted ten minutes or so, but it was a challenge! This is another thing we will continue to practice.

From the Friend Magazine Facebook Page yesterday:
Read “My Gratitude List” (pages 6–7). On a piece of paper write “GRRRRR” and on a second paper write “ATTITUDE.” When we are unhappy, how can gratitude help us to be happier? Slide the second paper over the first so that all the letters are covered except “GR.” What word do you read? Talk about how having gratitude can make our bad attitudes go away.
