October Primary Singing Time Fall Leaves

Autumn is starting to show around us. We live up in the mountains and the red maples are turning, the aspens are yellow leafed, and then we have the evergreen trees everywhere and wildflowers on the hills. It is a perfect time to do something with changing leaves! 

Find some other fun Fall Songs and add them to leaves….

Get some construction paper and make up some red, yellow, orange, green and brown leaves. A great leaf pattern can be found  HERE at Enchanted Learning. Then put songs on the back and tape the songs all around your blackboard, counter and on the piano. Kids can come up and choose a leaf. If it has a song behind it sing that song. If not, then the child (or the child’s teacher) can pick a favorite song.  (You can also find silk colorful leaves at hobby shops right now, that might even be easier!)

Fall Primary Singing Time for October

Most of you have had your presentation by now. So the next few weeks can be doing some fun songs. 

We’ll have to go see the Witches at Gardner Village again this year. That’s a fun Fall outing. 

All these grandkids are a lot bigger now. But it’s fun to see how much they’ve grown by now! 

Another idea is singing the tune of “Oh What do You Do in the Summertime” on Page 245 of Children’s Songbook,  but change the words to these words, written by Kristy Brinkman 

Oh what do you do in the Autumn time
When all the world has changed?
Do you jump in some leaves,
Or swing in the breeze,
And watch all the birds go by?
Is that what you do?
So do I.

Oh what do you do in the Autumn time
When all the world has changed?
Do you sip hot cocoa,
And wish for some snow
As you watch all the clouds go by?
Is that what you do?
So do I.

Here’s another one….by me, Pattie Moss!  Sing to the tune of
 Once There Was a Snowman, Page 249  in the Children’s Songbook.

Once There Was a Leafman, leafman, leafman,
Once there was a leafman, blow, blow blow!
Swaying in the windstorm, windstorm, windstorm,
Swaying in the windstorm, FALL, FALL, FALL

(all fall down slowly till all on the floor) This would be good for the Jr. Primary. Older kids might like to do it but they may get silly with it.  😀

Fall is my FAVORITE SEASON! And HERE IS WHY!  Have a fantastic FALL!  


BYU Football is ON

We got tickets to the BYU Football season opener game on September 11th. We got to be a part of this cool “card section” that wrote out the words “WE WILL NEVER FORGET”. Can you see us in the upper left corner? No? 
These military men and women were holding a giant American flag they walked out on the field and unfurled. It was quite impressive. They were totally at attention holding it before the game. 

They snaked around the building the flag was so big! 

They made a lot of touchdowns in the first quarter. We sang the fight song over and over!!! 

I think this is my first selfie ever. It sucked. But I liked Johnny in his hat. 

This was my brother-in-law Jack’s son’s band Westward the Tide. They did an awesome job of singing the national anthem. 

Jack and Julie’s son Cam is on the far right. He does keyboards in the band.

#BYUfootball is fun to go see once in awhile. John said he’d rather watch it on T.V. with all the people and traffic it is quite an ordeal just to get there and get home.

But these experiences are what make life worth living, dontcha know? Well I think so anyway. Gotta live it up while the sun shines. Cuz you just never know.

I thought the #BYUcheer team were all so darling. I loved their out uniforms and pom poms. And of course their BYU tatoos on their cheeks. I gotta get some of those. 

This cute girl sat in front of us. She had light and dark blue nail polish and some decals on her thumbs that had the Y from BYU. She bought them at Walmart! SO cute! 

Then she shared her Cougar Tail donut all around. We sat all amongst the BYU students. Yeah we are cool like that. Can you see how far up we are? Yeah. Nose bleed seats. Oh well. 

Taped to our seats was a card stunt. It was fun to do with everybody. It made out the words “We Will Never Forget. The peek hole is funny I thought. 😀 snicker……

The halftime show was fun to watch. I used to do a drill team in high school. I was a “Warriorette” for West Torrance High. We did the Rose Parade one year. We rocked as a band and drill team, winning lots of awards.

As we walked out in the 4th quarter….(yes BYU won the game…and it was clear early on) we walked past the Houston team’s trucks and buses. And we got on T.V. that night! Woot. It was a fun experience for 2 former BYU alumni. Woot! Go Fight Win!
